Originally published at Big E. provides update on neck injury, hoping to avoid fusion
Big E. (Ettore Ewen) has provided an update on his recovery from a broken neck that was sustained this past March during a live edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
Ewen, 36, fractured his C-1 and C-6 vertebrae on the March 11th edition of SmackDown during a tag match when he was dropped on his head during a belly-to-belly suplex attempt by opponent Ridge Holland.
On Friday, the performer posted the following update:
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.
