Big E Neck Injury Update

As noted before, Big E has been out of action for WWE since March of 2022 due to a broken neck injury.

A recent episode of the Busted Open Radio podcast featured Big E as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Big E providing an update on on the current status of his rehab and recovery from his neck injury.

“Still haven’t gotten the one-year check ups yet. We’re actually going to do that when we get back home after WrestleMania. Early April, during that first week, we’ll get another set of scans. Right now, the issue was, the thought was after three months I should be ready, but because of the nature of my fracture, I broke my C1 in two places, and it’s a Jefferson fracture. Sometimes, unfortunately with that injury, thankfully there’s no displacement, so we didn’t need to have surgery and all the bones were still in place to hopefully heal together properly. It’s healing fibrously, meaning it’s connected enough that I can walk around and no one is concerned that I’m going to be in any pain or have any issues, but it’s not ossifying yet, it’s not turning completely into bone. To deal with the rigors of bumping and doing what we do on a nightly basis, you want to make sure your C1 is completely ossified, it’s all bone, and it’s in the best shape possible. The plan is to get more scans at the first week of April, have the doctors review them, and make a decision from there. Your C1 is an important bone and I want to make the best decision health-wise for myself. You don’t want to rush. I’ve been in rehab for nine months, working on strength and range of motion and all of that has been great. That’s where we’re at right now. We’ll get the scans and move on from there.”

I think once they stop within, then they can honestly see what’s going on around them in terms of the talent that’s there. Right now, I think, like I told them, they should stay away, wait for all this stuff to die down, let them get their bearings straight and once they’re ready to produce what they should be producing, then try to go up there again but until then, like I say, just stay away and keep doing what you’re doing.” (Transcript h/t: PostWrestling.com)
