UPDATE: WWE Superstar Big E. took to Twitter following a very scary spot on SmackDown where he landed on his head. Following the incident, he was stretchered out of the arena and was taken to a local hospital in Birmingham, AL to be evaluated.
According to the former WWE Champion, he’s going to be “good” but has a broken neck. He said,
“I can’t thank all of you beautiful people enough for all of your concern and your messages. It’s very heartwarming. I can move all my digits. You see that? That’s nice, that’s always a good thing. Strength feels fine. But unfortunately, right now, they tell me my neck is broken. So there is that. But once again, thank you everybody, I’m gonna be alright. I’ll be good, don’t worry. Go to sleep, don’t worry about ol’ me. But for real, thank you. And I appreciate all of you.”

ORIGINAL: Big E. was injured on Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
The scary spot came when Big E. and Kofi Kingston faced off in a match with Sheamus and Ridge Holland, which the latter wound up winning.
During the match, Holland hit an overhead belly-to-belly suplex on Big E. on the outside of the ring. This resulted in Big E. landing directly on his head and neck.
Following the spot, the show quickly went to a commercial break and Big E. was stretchered out of the arena. There was said to have been a lot of concern backstage. As he was being stretchered out of the arena, Big E. was able to give fans a thumbs up which is good news.
For what it’s worth, Big E. was taken to a hospital in Birmingham, AL by ambulance in order to undergo medical tests.
We send our best wishes to Big E.
Prayers up for Big E. This was terrifying to see! Hope he’s okay 🙏 Match ended shortly after and PatMcAfee looked legit terrified pic.twitter.com/dGpb7mkJKx
