Former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston said Big E's neck injury scared him to perform inside a squared circle.

The New Day is one of the most popular teams in all of professional wrestling. After its inception in 2014, the trio of Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods went on to become the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions of all time. In 2019, Kingston won the WWE Championship.

Last year, the group went their separate ways as Big E won the WWE Championship and Xavier Woods became the 2021 King of the Ring winner. Unfortunately, E was injured and broke his neck during a match. Speaking to TMZ, Kingston said E's injury put a scare in him as a performer:

"With E's situation and him breaking his neck ... you're reminded of just how dangerous what we do is... It only takes one second for everything to go awry... With his situation, we really lucked out." [H/T - TMZ]

E was seen without a neck brace and recovering from his injury. Fans are excited to see him return to weekly programming and reunite with Kingston and Woods.

Since then, Kingston and Woods have lost in the mix as they spent months facing The Brawling Brutes. After the feud ended, the two began feuding with the returning Viking Raiders on the blue brand. They lost to the Raiders a few weeks ago, which ended their feud.
