Big E At Home Following Broken Neck On WWE SmackDown
Big E is home after his nasty injury
Big E's stint in hospital is over.
The former WWE Champion revealed on Twitter on Monday that he had been released from hospital, tweeting Andre Smith: "Appreciate you, man. I'm actually home now but Birmingham took good care of me."
Big E fractured his C1 and C6 vertebrae on last week's edition of SmackDown after he landed on his head following a Belly To Belly Suplex from Ridge Holland.
Big E had been teaming with his New Day faction-mate Kofi Kingston on the show against Holland and Sheamus in a programme that reportedly would have led to a six-man tag at WrestleMania 38 also featuring Xavier Woods and Butch.
The Powerhouse Of Positivity was stretchered out of the arena following the move and he received medical attention at a local hospital in Birmingham, Alabama before he was subsequently discharged.
Big E revealed he won't require surgery on his neck but there are fears he might not be able to wrestle again with Dr David Chao noting a C1 fracture "often heals incompletely and it may mean the end of his wrestling career."
