Big E Set To Undergo Further Scans On Neck Injury
Big E has been out of action with neck issues since March 2022
It's been over a year since Big E broke his neck during an episode of WWE SmackDown, and we are seemingly no closer to seeing the former WWE Champion make his grand return.
However, Big E has given an update on his condition, telling Busted Open Radio that he should know more about a potential return in April:
“Right now, I still haven't gotten the one-year check-ups yet, we're actually going to do that when I get back home after WrestleMania. So, early April, during that first week, we'll get another set of scans,” said Big E.
Big E suffered the injury after a botched belly-to-belly overhead suplex from Ridge Holland, and whilst it’s unknown if he’ll ever be cleared to wrestle again, Big E is taking every precaution to fully heal in order to live a normal life:
“So, it's healing fibrously, meaning it's connected enough that I can walk around and no one's concerned that I'm going to be in any kind of pain or have any issues. But, it's just not ossifying yet, it's not turning completely into bone. And to deal with the rigours of bumping and doing what we do on a nightly basis, obviously, you want to make sure your C1 is completely ossified, that it's all bone, that it's in the best shape possible.
“So, right now the plan is to get some more scans the first week of April, and have the doctors review them, and then make a decision from there. Obviously, your C1 is a very important bone and I want to make the best decision health-wise for myself. It's one of those things you just don't want to rush. I've been in rehab right now for about nine months working on strength and range of motion and all of that stuff has been great,” continued Big E.
