It looks like Big E is currently dealing with a knee injury.
The big man of The New Day took to Twitter today and indicated a meniscus tear, possibly suffered during the six-man main event of Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown Live, which saw The New Day defeat Drew McIntyre and The Bar. Big E’s cryptic tweet indicates he suffered the injury while doing or taking a crossbody. He ended with a “Bye for a bit” and that could mean time off to heal.
According to our coverage from Tuesday night, Big E did take a crossbody from Cesaro towards the end of the match but he worked for a few minutes after that, even going for a pin right after and a Big Ending attempt.
