Big E Advised To Never Wrestle Again

Big E

The in-ring future of Big E remains very uncertain.

Big E has been out of action for well over a year now after suffering a broken neck but it seems the star still has no idea if or when he can return to the ring.

Speaking to Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling at the SummerSlam press conference Big E gave an update on his current condition and says he has been told by doctors not to return to the ring:

“We did the year check-up and all that stuff looked great, but on the other side, I also talked to spine specialists, people who have worked on other people in the company and done their fusions and they said, ‘Hey, I would not wrestle again if I were you.’

“For me, at 37, these are things that I think about. I think about quality of life. When I started this job at 23 and probably had a bit of a death wish and was okay at dying in the ring, I would now like to not die in the ring. I would like to do other things with my life. I don’t really have a timeline right now. I’m just really grateful to not have any nerve pain. My strength is great. Legit no issues whatsoever.

“It’s something I want to be smart about and make the best decision for my life. I’d like to have a lot of healthy life ahead of me. I want to be smart about things. Unfortunately, right now, I have no answer. I feel great, but I have nothing.”

How did Big E get injured?

The former WWE Champion suffered a serious neck injury during a match on the 11th of March 2022 edition of SmackDown.

Big E and Kofi Kingston teamed to take on Ridge Holland and Sheamus when Holland gave Big E an overhead belly-to-belly suplex outside of the ring. Unfortunately, the New Day star did not land as he should have and instead landed hard on the floor directly on top of his head.
