Originally published at Big E. provides update and states he has a broken neck

Big E. suffered a broken neck during a tag match on Friday Night SmackDown.

The injury occurred as Big E. took a belly-to-belly suplex from Ridge Holland on the floor and the landing looked incredibly scary.

It was not shown on camera, but he was taken to the back on a stretcher and gave a “thumbs up” to the audience as he was being wheeled out.

The match continued with Sheamus pinning Kofi Kingston and included a post-match attack on Kingston by Sheamus, Holland, and Pete Dunne.

Later in the evening, Big E. posted an updated and stated he has movement but has been told he has a broken neck.

We wish Big E. all the best as he deals with this serious injury.

This is horrible news :disappointed:. Hopefully it’s not as bad as it sounds and he makes a full recovery and gets the rocket strapped to his back upon his return. Damn.

Holy shit. I hope he is okay, aside from the obvious.

Holy shit, saw the highlight. Brutal stuff, hope Big E is ok but Ridge Holland needs to go back to NXT. Just a stupid and unnecessary spot that was a bad idea and never should have been tried on a guy the size of Big E.
