From the WWE Rumor Mill: Jason Jordan could have surgery; return timeline revealed
What’s the story?
On a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, it was revealed that Jason Jordan’s neck injury may be much more serious than was initially diagnosed.
It was noted that Jordan could have surgery and miss out on in-ring competition for the rest of the 2018 calendar year.
In case you didn’t know…
Jason Jordan has performed in the WWE’s developmental territories since 2011 and competed on the main roster from 2016.
Jordan was set to receive a huge push on the WWE’s RAW brand this year, however, he was recently diagnosed with a neck injury.
The heart of the matter
As we’d previously reported, Jason Jordan has been used in a minimal in-ring role ever since his aforementioned diagnosis, as experts believe that the neck injury has been causing him problems with his grip—something that’s considered to be a serious warning sign by medical professionals.
Veteran professional wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer explained that Jordan’s neck injury may be similar to that of Arn Anderson and Chris Benoit.
Furthermore, Meltzer noted that Jordan is doing everything to try and avoid surgery, however, if the latter decides to undergo neck surgery right now he could be out of action for at least 12-14 months. Meltzer also opined that the surgery is by no means happening. However, plans could change.
Whether or not Jason Jordan opts to have surgery right away remains to be seen. However, per the vast majority of medical professionals, an individual ought to rest and heal for at least 3-6 months before resuming one’s normal routine after neck surgery—with athletes being advised to refrain from full-contact sporting competition until one to one-and-a-half years of surgery.
Sportskeeda will keep fans updated on Jordan’s physical status as and when further details are revealed.
Jason Jordan is one of the most athletically-gifted performers in the WWE today.
It’s a shame to see such a great talent lose out on valuable time of his athletic prime owing to injuries. Here’s hoping Jordan avoids surgery and the injury heals with physical therapy and other neck-surgery alternatives out there today.
