Doctor Believes Big E May Never Wrestle Again

Big E's in-ring career could be over

Former WWE Champion Big E suffered a serious injury on Friday's edition of SmackDown.

During a tag team match with New Day faction-mate Kofi Kingston against Ridge Holland and Sheamus, Big E took a Belly To Belly Suplex from Holland but landed on the top of his head on the outside. As a result, Big E fractured his C1 and C6 neck vertebrae and was stretchered out of the arena.

The former WWE Champion later revealed he wouldn't require surgery but if he will be able to wrestle again is unclear, however. 

Writing for Outkick, Dr. David Chao noted a C1 fracture is most dangerous and is "commonly associated with immediate death or complete paralysis." As the vertebrae was not displaced, Big E won't need surgery but "this type of fracture often heals incompletely and it may mean the end of his wrestling career."

Chao also noted the C6 fracture will require a minimum three-month recovery time before the WWE Superstar regains full function.
