Big E Able To Live Normal Day-To-Day Life Following Broken Neck

A potential in-ring return, however, is still some way away

Former WWE Champion Big E has given an update on his physical condition following the broken neck he suffered on the March 11 episode of SmackDown.

Appearing on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Big E said he is cleared to live a 'normal' day-to-day life, but is unsure about a potential timeline for an in-ring return. 

"Essentially, the issue right now is my C1 is not completely ossifying, it's not completely forming into bone but it appears to be healing fibrously so it's kind of contained enough. I'm not a medical expert so I'm gonna butcher all these terms but it's good enough that they're not worried about me in my day-to-day life, I don't need the brace anymore, they took surgery off the table," the New Day member said. 

He continued, saying: "I'd be cleared to live a normal life and I am cleared to live a normal life but I'm not cleared to be taking off and hitting suicide spears and to be taking back bumps. The nature of what we do is very physical and involves your neck and your spine and I'd like to keep that as intact as possible".

He also noted that he has been working out in the gym since two weeks after initially suffering the break. 

As far as how he's currently feeling and the next steps, Big E said: 

"So for me right now, kind of the next step is they want to take a look at it again after a year, get some more scans. So, we are talking about, like, March of next year to see how it's doing. We might also, along the way, at the six and nine-month mark look at it again. But the upside is right now I have no nerve issues, there's no tingling, no weakness".
