During a tag team bout against Ridge Holland and Sheamus, the former WWE Champion landed hard after he fell out of the ring. He seemed to be okay after this spot, but the fan-favorite landed right on his head during a belly-to-belly suplex from Holland.

Update: Big E tweeted a brief message in which he noted that he has been told that his neck is broken. He thanked fans for their support and stated that he’ll be okay.
“I can’t thank all of you beautiful people enough for all of your concern and your messages, it’s very heartwarming,” said Big E. “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’s 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 old me. But for real thank you, and I appreciate all of you.”
