Big E’s recovery from the fractured C1 vertebrae suffered while wrestling on the 11 March 2022 episode of WWE SmackDown isn’t going as well as hoped.

The New Day man shared an update via Twitter earlier today, stating that his C1 “isn’t healing optimally.” E will now spend the next 4-6 weeks wearing a neck brace in the hope that he will be able to avoid fusion surgery:

Big E was hurt during a match pitting himself and Kofi Kingston against Sheamus and Ridge Holland on the aforementioned SmackDown show. Taking a rough bump from a belly-to-belly suplex outside the ring, landing on his head, E was stretchered out of the building and taken to a hospital.

It was later revealed that the former WWE Champion had fractured both his C1 and C6 vertebrae. The 36-year-old has since been forthcoming in providing his fans with updates, including a video showing him back on his feet less than a week after the accident, though the severity of his injuries has never been underplayed.
