Report: No Heat On Ridge Holland After Big E's Broken Neck
The locker room don't have heat with Ridge Holland
The New Day faced off against Sheamus and Ridge Holland on Friday's episode of SmackDown but the match ended in disaster for Big E as the former WWE Champion landed on his head following a Belly To Belly Suplex on the outside from Holland.
Big E was stretchered out of the arena and The Powerhouse Of Positivity has since announced he suffered a fractured C1 and C6 neck vertebrae, although he will not need to undergo surgery as neither were displaced.
While Big E may have suffered a fractured neck, there is no heat on Ridge Holland, with the incident having been put down as "accidents happen", according to Wade Keller of PWTorch.
"I will say I heard that Ridge Holland was very apologetic and very sorry about what happened backstage. He handled himself well. There doesn't appear to be any heat on him. This was not a reckless move or something that Big E wasn't ready for or that seemed like in any way Ridge Holland did anything wrong. In terms of the spot, it's just accidents happen is what I was told," Keller said on a PWTorch VIP audio show.
If Big E will be able to continue his in-ring career remains to be seen, though, as a doctor noted a C1 fracture often heals incompletely which could force the former WWE Champion to retire.
