Lance Archer reflects on Big E's injury

Big E suffered a serious neck injury this early in 2022. The 36-year-old from Tampa had to skip WrestleMania 38 and will have to wait a long time before seeing him back in the ring. During his WWE career, the current SmackDown star has once held the WWE Championship, once the NXT Championship, twice the Intercontinental title, twice the Raw Tag Team Championship and six times the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

establishing itself as one of the best superstars around. He was also awarded the 2021 edition of Money in the Bank. His second reign as Raw Tag Team Champion, which lasted 483 days, is the longest in the history of the title.

Speaking to 'The Wrestling Perspective', AEW star Lance Archer explained how his neck injury differs from that which occurred to Big E.

"First of all, I want to wish Big E a speedy recovery. I met him some time ago and I was impressed by his availability, he is a great guy.

It is no coincidence that everyone loves it” - began Lance Archer. “His injury appears to be a little more serious than mine. I was really lucky because I didn't actually break my neck. The MRI scans I took showed no fractures.

I found no spinal damage, no fractures, nothing like that. I only suffered severe trauma to my neck and back” - he said. In a conversation on Sportskeeda, former WWE manager Dutch Mantell criticized Ridge Holland for propitiating the incident: “The truth is, Ridge isn't ready for these stages yet.

He is very clear that he does not have the right experience. It's not that surprising that Big E got hurt right during a sequence with him. Holland doesn't have the talent to be where he is now. Sorry to be so strict, but Ridge is still too immature.

He's not even that good at the microphone." There is probably no WWE Superstar walking the face of the planet who is as agile or athletic as Ricochet is. That is not a problem at all. Beyond that, he is just a regular guy who brags about his achievements to Aliyah backstage.

He is missing the X-Factor that the industry-defining stars over the years have had. He could seamlessly fit into The New Day as a third member, even if it was for a very brief period. So when Big E returns, he could go after the title that Ricochet holds.
