Big E has provided an update on his neck injury that he suffered in March on an episode of WWE SmackDown when he landed awkwardly on the top of his head after taking a suplex from Ridge Holland.

The former WWE Champion later revealed that he suffered a broken neck. The C1 and C6 were fractured, but non-displacement. He also didn’t damage his spinal cord nor suffer any ligament damage and didn’t need surgery.

Big E shared this update on his neck by writing the following on Twitter: “For those desirous of an update, my C1 apparently isn’t healing optimally. I’ll spend another 4-6 weeks in a brace in hopes that I can avoid a fusion. But don’t you fret! I’ve got a tremendous support system & what shall be shall be.”
