Big E Comments on Wanting to Make “Smart Decision” on Whether to Resume WWE In-Ring Career

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

Denise Salcedo held a recent interview with Big E. One of the topics discussed included Big E’s thoughts about wanting to make a “smart decision” over the future of his in-ring wrestling career in WWE.

“So when I think about the damage I have done to my body over the years, I just want to be smart, because this is the one body I get and I have to carry it throughout my 40s, 50s hopefully and beyond. So that’s the goal. I just want to make a smart decision and I am just so grateful to feel so good, to have no restrictions and I want to be smart with whatever decision I make.”

WWE recently released a new vlog featuring a behind-the-scenes look at CM Punk’s Royal Rumble 2024 weekend and this past Monday’s RAW show. In the video, Punk gave his thoughts about WWE’s current backstage locker room.
