It was quite the scary sight tonight for anyone watching SmackDown as Big E landed directly on his head while taking a belly-to-belly suplex from Ridge Holland on the outside of the ring. Big E did not get up after the move, and the match ended without seeing him on camera again.
Here is a video of the injury, credit to WrestlingInc.com:
An UGLY landing for Big E at ringside. Looks like he landed on his head and he was not seen again on-screen after this. #SmackDown #WWE

During the commercial break, Big E was stretchered out of the arena but was luckily able to give the crowd a “thumbs up.” In an update to the situation, Big E himself has provided an update, although he has feelings in his extremities, he has unfortunately been told that he did suffer a broken neck.
We at Pro Wrestling Roundup wish Big E a speedy recovery, here is the update from the man himself:
