WWE Star Big E Broke His Neck On Smackdown!!

WWE star Big E shared that he suffered a broken neck during the live WWE Smackdown show in Alabama.

In a shocking move, the wrestler landed on his head.

"So, I got some really good news, all things considered," Big E said in a video "The C1 and C6 are indeed fractured, not displacement though which is a very good thing. And I don't have any damage to my spinal cord, no ligament damage, and no surgery which I'm very thankful for." 

He continued, "And a pro tip: if you're going to break your neck, do it in Birmingham. They've been great, everyone here at UAB has been great. But for real, it's meant a ton to me that so many of you have been so kind and reached out, stopped in to see me, texted me," he said before nearly tearing up. "I know I sound like a broken record but I feel very grateful, and I'm going to be alright."
