An update has provided more insight on Big E’s injury, and how long it could take him to make a return to the ring.
Big E recently took to social media to share that he had been informed that his injury hasn’t been healing optimally, after suffering a broken neck in March.
Per the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the former WWE Champion is currently trying to avoid having to undergo fusion surgery that would keep him out of action anywhere from six to 15 months:
“Big E released news that his C-1 vertebrae is not healing as well as hoped for. He will remain in a neck brace for the next four to six weeks with the hope things get better and he can avoid neck fusion surgery. Depending on the type of surgery they would do, fusion surgery could mean anywhere from six to about 15 months on the shelf but usually is more than a year.”
A doctor at the time of the injury speculated Big E may never be able to wrestle again due to the nature of the injury. It is important to remember that he’s still in relatively early days in terms of recovery.
Above all else, we wish Big E a safe and healthy recovery, and all the best for the future.
