If Big E’s latest Instagram story is any indication of how his recovery is going, things seem to be looking up for the former WWE Champion.

Earlier today, E posted a clip to his Instagram story that shows a neck brace being tossed into an open trash can. The brace collides with an empty plastic jug, a food prep container, and other garbage before coming to a rest at the top.

It’s been a little over 3 months since E suffered a broken neck during a tag team match on WWE “SmackDown”. The March 11, 2022 edition of the Blue Brand saw The New Day’s Kofi Kingston & Big E against The Brawling Brutes’ Ridge Holland & Sheamus when, during a belly-to-belly suplex on the outside of the ring from Holland to E, Big E landed on his neck and was immediately attended to by WWE medics.

In a video posted the following morning by the optimistic WWE star, E cited that his “C1 and C6 [were] indeed fractured, not displacement though which is a very good thing. And I don’t have any damage to my spinal cord, no ligament damage, and no surgery which I’m very thankful for.”

It was also noted in a report around the time of the injury that “several” members of the WWE roster came to visit Big E in the hospital after he was admitted, including Ridge Holland. While away from active competition, E has stayed busy by attending NHL Playoff games and was also featured on the Nickelodeon Show, “Side Hustle”, a project he guest-starred on prior to the injury.
