Big E Receives Medical Recommendation Against Wrestling Return, Prioritizes Future Well-being

Big E Offers Insight into His Future Plans

Since his last appearance on the March 11, 2021 episode of WWE SmackDown, where he endured a neck injury upon landing on his head following a belly-to-belly suplex from Ridge Holland, fans have eagerly awaited updates on Big E. The injury left him with a fractured C1 vertebrae and C6 vertebrae, fortunately without any ligament or spinal cord damage.

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,”

On July 7, Big E expressed feeling back to his full strength, although he remained uncertain about his return to the wrestling ring. Speaking during a WWE SummerSlam media conference, he elaborated on his in-ring future.

In the interim, Big E has been participating in WWE premium live event weekends, aiding with NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) tryouts.
