Big E suffered a meniscus tear in a tag team match a while ago. While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Big E was asked about his injury and when he might be able to return to the ring. From the looks of it, it will take longer than expected.
“I had a meniscus repair and I think I’ll be back by 2021. That’s my goal. If I give myself a year and a half, I think that sounds about right. You know, you don’t want to rush these things. Maybe even 2022, who knows? Maybe I’ll take some time off. Maybe get some hydraulic knees, because this is my fourth knee surgery. So maybe look into that. Some Go-Go-Gadget legs. I might go bionic, actually. So we might go back to the drawing boards on that. Get some new hardware. So yeah, that’s the plan.”
Hopefully, he is able to make his in-ring return earlier than 2021 since that is a really long time for him to be away from in-ring competition.
In the meantime, Big E is amusing himself on social media by hitting on Becky Lynch’s mother, among other things.
