WWE star Big E posted an update on his health journey two years after his neck injury that has had him sidelined indefinitely. BIg E took to his Twitter/X to share the results of his two-year kneck scan.

“Hey, all! Two-year neck scans are in. Things are unchanged. My C1 has healed fibrously but has not formed new bone. I’m not medically cleared and truthfully, I may never be cleared. But I am blessed to be free of pain, immensely happy and otherwise healthy. Life is good.”

The news of his pain-free status brought relief to WWE fans, but there's a hint of sadness as uncertainty lingers about his return to the ring after recovery. Big E was diagnosed with a double C1 fracture in January 2022, leading to an indefinite hiatus with no definite recovery timeline. Despite extensive rehabilitation efforts, he has yet to receive medical clearance for wrestling.

In an appearance on the Sarah O'Connell Show in February, Big E spoke about his recovery and the decision making that would affect him choosing to return to the ring.

“It's one of those things where I just want to make the right decision. I'm so thankful that I feel so good. In my day-to-day life, I have no restrictions. In my day-to-day life, I don't even feel like someone who had a broken neck, but I broke my C1 in two places, and it's something you often see in diving accidents, when people are diving into shallow pools or surfaces with no water, and they end up coming down on their head. Oftentimes, that is fatal for so many people. I talked to a few doctors, one who did the surgery for Tyson Kidd, who had a very severe neck injury. I also talked to the doctor they sent me to at USF. Both doctors were like, ‘Hey, please don't wrestle.' Almost begging.

He continued, “So it's just one of those things where I'm 37 now, I started wrestling when I was 23. I think about the long list of injuries that I've had, most of them from playing football. I've torn my left ACL, I've torn my right ACL, broken my right patella, torn my right patella, tore my left meniscus, tore my left pec, herniated disc in my back, a herniated disc in my neck, and broken my neck in three places. I've done a lot to my body over the years. It's something that I've really loved. I've loved being in the ring, I've loved being an athlete. But at 37 now, I also think about what life is going to look like in 10 years, what life is going to look like at 50, at 60. I want to live a good life. I don't want to be trapped in a broken vessel. So for me, it's just making the right decision. No door has been permanently closed or permanently opened or any of those things. No decision has really officially been made yet. But we'll see. I'm really thankful for health, for life, for being in such a good place, and I just want to make the best decision for myself, so we'll see.”

Although he still isn't cleared to be in the ring, Big E has still showed up to entertain the WWE Universe. He still is an ambassador for the company, showing up in video game promo videos for WWE 2k. He also was featured on the Wrestlemania 40 preshow alongside Michael Cole, Pat McAfee, CM Punk, and other members of the WWE team. Although Big E hasn't entered the ring in over two years, he's still entertaining millions of wrestling fans around the world.
