Big E Gives an Injury Update, Says Neck Isn’t “Healing Optimally”

Big E gave an update on his broken neck on Twitter today, saying that his C1 vertebrae “isn’t healing optimally” and he will spend another 4-6 weeks in a neck brace in hopes that he can avoid fusion surgery.

He suffered the injury on the March 11 SmackDown when taking a belly to belly suplex on the floor outside the ring. He said that he suffered a fractured C1 and C6, but had no damage to his spinal cord and no ligament damage.
