His last major update didn’t sound great. In early May, E reported his neck wasn’t healing “optimally”, and that he still might need fusion surgery. Since then, we’ve gotten positive signs — he threw his neck brace in the trash on Instagram, and send this very Large Epsilon video in response to some well wishes from super-fan Jessi Davin...

Update! My C1 isn’t ossifying (forming bone) quite yet. The current plan is to get more scans at the one year mark & see how it’s progressing. The great news is I feel tremendous & surgery is off the table.— Ettore “Big E” Ewen (@WWEBigE) July 4, 2022
Surgery being off the table is excellent news. This does make it seem like a return to the ring is a long way off, if it ever happens. But E feeling good is the most important thing.
We’ll focus on that.
