Big E Provides an Update on His in-ring Future With WWE

Big E - Wrestling Examiner

WWE Superstar Big E has been out of action ever since March 11, 2022 when he suffered a neck injury from landing on his head after a botched belly-to-belly suplex, outside of the ring by Ridge Holland. Big E fractured both his C1 and C6 vertebrae. Luckily he did not suffer any ligament or spinal cord damage.

So it was no surprise that on Friday during the WWE SummerSlam Media Conference Big E was asked about his in-ring future with WWE.

The Former WWE Champion said that doctors have advised him not to wrestle again. He mentioned that he would like to do other things in his life. He did mention that he was strong and healthy but currently has no timeline right now.

“We did the year check-up and all that stuff looked great, but on the other side, I also talked to spine specialists, people who have worked on other people in the company and done their fusions and they said, ‘Hey, I would not wrestle again if I were you.’ For me, at 37, these are things that I think about. I think about quality of life. When I started this job at 23 and probably had a bit of a death wish and was okay at dying in the ring, I would now like to not die in the ring. I would like to do other things with my life. I don’t really have a timeline right now. I’m just really grateful to not have any nerve pain. My strength is great. Legit no issues whatsoever. It’s something I want to be smart about and make the best decision for my life. I’d like to have a lot of healthy life ahead of me. I want to be smart about things. Unfortunately, right now, I have no answer. I feel great, but I have nothing.”
