In a recent appearance on Peter Rosenberg’s “Cheap Heat” podcast, former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston touched on a variety of topics. Most notably, Kingston shared a medical update concerning co-New Day Superstar, Big E.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
Kofi Kingston on What makes Big E a special person: “He’s doing great, man. He’s doing awesome. I mean, for someone who literally broke their neck, it’s amazing to see the level of recovery. Even from that day, he was wanting to make sure that everybody knew that he was okay. I’m like, man, what an amazing, thoughtful person to be literally like, you know, on the edge of contemplating death or paralysis or whatever is going on. You don’t know what’s going on. This is your neck, and you’re worried about other people. That’s a totally different level of caring. I don’t think I’ve ever met anybody with that level of concern for other people. You know what I mean? So, yeah, he’s doing really, really well, man.”
Kofi Kingston on the details of Big E’s recovery: “He hasn’t had to have surgery on his neck. It’s kind of healed naturally. I think it was at the point where, so the wound is healed, but the fractures are not ossifying, generating new bone. You learn all types of new terms when you get close to these situations. So they want to do a new scan, I believe in March, and they want to see where things are and we’ll kind of go from there.”
Kofi Kingston on what’s most important for Big E: “To me, the most important thing, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘Well, when’s he coming back? You think he’s gonna come back?’ To me, the most important thing is that he’s able to live his life in a comfortable fashion and be happy.”
