Big E and Kofi Kingston are great friends and they are part of the popular WWE stable known as The New Day alongside Xavier Woods.
Kofi and Big E are two of the most loved superstars in the pro-wrestling circuit. They are immensely successful in their wrestling careers. Both of them are former world champions and have won the tag team championships on multiple occasions.
Big E recently posted a selfie with his good friend Kofi on his Twitter account and wrote this in the caption: “I love this man like he birthed me!” Big E is wearing a neck brace in the picture. The former powerlifter Big E suffered a broken neck on an episode of SmackDown, weeks prior to WWE’s showpiece event – WrestleMania 38.
How did Big E get injured and when is he returning?
Big E suffered a terrible injury when an attempted belly-to-belly suplex from Ridge Holland went wrong as the former WWE champion landed on top of his head.
The 36-year-old Big E had teamed with Kofi Kingston to face the team of Sheamus and Ridge Holland. During a spot outside the ring, Holland performed a belly-to-belly suplex on E. The big man tried his best to rotate fully and land on his back but that didn’t happen. He ended up landing on top of his head which made for scary viewing.
After being taken to the hospital in Birmingham, E revealed in a video that his C1 and C6 were fractured but not displaced. The good news was that he suffered no spinal cord or ligament damage and didn’t require surgery.
Fans and well-wishers poured in their good thoughts and Big E didn’t forget to acknowledge them. While there is no date revealed as yet as to when E will return to action but he is recovering well and that is what we all are praying for.
