WWE Superstar Hospitalized After Live Broadcast In Birmingham
WWE wrestler known as Big E has been hospitalized after he confirms he suffered a broken neck during a live "Smackdown" broadcast in Birmingham.
Big E took to Twitter to confirm to his followers that he indeed sustained a broken neck after Friday's wrestling match in Birmingham.
"I got some really good news, all things considered," Big E began his update. "The C1 and C6 are indeed fractured...I don't have any damage to my spinal cord, no ligament damage, and no surgery which I'm very thankful for. "
The wrestler went on to praise the workers at the UAB hospital for his treatment. "Pro-tip, If you're going to break your neck, do it in Birmingham," Big E said.
"They've been great. Everyone here at UAB has been great."
According to ESPN, Big E took an overhead belly-to-belly suplex from fellow wrestler Ridge Holland during their match and landed on the top of his head.
Big E was removed from Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, on a stretcher and taken to a hospital, a scene that was not shown on television.
