A former NXT, Raw, and SmackDown Tag Team Champion
Jason Jordan

What's the story?

Raw GM Kurt Angle sent Jason Jordan home after interfering in the Raw Tag Team Championship match, but the reasons for that move may have more to do with his real-life injury.

PWInsider reports that Jordan being sent home by Angle was to mask the real-life injuries that are said to be affecting his back or his neck.

The former Tag Team Champion has been pulled from house shows and TV tapings until his injuries have been resolved.

In case you didn't know...

Jordan has been a big player on Monday Night Raw since being revealed as "Kurt Angle's son" back in 2017. The former member of American Alpha would fight Roman Reigns and John Cena and would capture the Raw Tag Team Championships with Seth Rollins to close out 2017, but a recent injury has lead to Jordan being used less as WWE builds towards WrestleMania.

The heart of the matter

Many were expecting Jordan to take on Angle or Rollins for WrestleMania 34, but if his injuries require more than two months to address, then Jordan may be pulled from WrestleMania.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said that rumors regarding Jordan's issues suggest that Jordan will ultimately need surgery to fix the issues, which would mean he would likely factor out of WrestleMania plans.

Jordan last wrestled back in January at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view when he teamed up with Rollins to defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against Cesaro & Sheamus. However, Jordan did very little in the match and resulted in The Bar winning the titles.

What's next?

If Jordan does end up needing surgery, then WWE will likely make a formal announcement and officially rule him out as a WrestleMania competitor.

Author's take

Hopefully, Jordan's injuries aren't too serious and he can make a full recovery. Until an official announcement, its doubtful that WWE would bring him back without any progress in his rumored injuries.
