Since WrestleMania 39 is taking place in Los Angeles, a lot of people in the world of wrestling are in town for various events. While WWE is running the biggest shows on Saturday & Sunday night at SoFi Stadium, there are many other wrestlers that flock to the WrestleMania city to be part of the festivities.

Unfortunately for Big E, he is not wrestling at his second straight WrestleMania due a broken neck suffered last March. Recently, Big E provided an update on his neck injury status.

“I still haven’t gotten the one-year check ups yet. We’re actually going to do that when we get back home after WrestleMania. Early April, during that first week, we’ll get another set of scans.”

“Right now, the issue was, the thought was after three months I should be ready, but because of the nature of my fracture, I broke my C1 in two places, and it’s a Jefferson fracture. Sometimes, unfortunately with that injury, thankfully there’s no displacement, so we didn’t need to have surgery and all the bones were still in place to hopefully heal together properly. It’s healing fibrously, meaning it’s connected enough that I can walk around and no one is concerned that I’m going to be in any pain or have any issues, but it’s not ossifying yet, it’s not turning completely into bone.”

“To deal with the rigors of bumping and doing what we do on a nightly basis, you want to make sure your C1 is completely ossified, it’s all bone, and it’s in the best shape possible. The plan is to get more scans at the first week of April, have the doctors review them, and make a decision from there. Your C1 is an important bone and I want to make the best decision health-wise for myself. You don’t want to rush.”

Even though he’s not wrestling at this year’s WrestleMania 39, Big E is in Los Angeles for the big show.

Late Thursday night, AEW’s TNT Champion Powerhouse Hobbs shared this photo with his “big bro” Big E.

It doesn’t mean that Big E is going to AEW or that Hobbs is going to WWE. It just means that a lot of pro wrestlers are friends regardless of what company they work for because what they do in that ring leads to a brootherhood and sisterhood with their peers.
