Former WWE Champion Big E breaks his neck on Friday Night SmackDown

This former WWE Champion went for a belly to belly suplex, resulting in the superstar directly landing on his neck. 

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, it has been said that there are different levels of broken necks, and Big E might have to go under surgery which can result in him gone for a year, similar to what happened to Edge.


There are different levels of break. There are broken necks that can end your career, and a lot of wrestlers came back from broken necks. It could be that one-year surgery thing that Steve Austin, Benoit, and Edge had too. It might not be the end of the world, but it’s still not good. (H/t Ringside News)
