WWE News: Jason Jordan's wife denies serious neck injury reports
What's the story?
According to reports from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jason Jordan's neck injury is actually quite severe. It has even been alleged that the Monday Night RAW Superstar is losing grip in his hands. However, Jordan's wife, April Everhart has taken to Facebook to refute those rumours.
Everhart insisted, "He (Jordan) has a minor neck injury and will be back in no time! Although, I am very excited to have him home for a bit, I promise I will help guide him to a speedy recovery. Thank You to everyone who reached out to check on him! He is very positive and already planning his comeback."
In case you didn't know...
Over the last few weeks Jason Jordan has not featured in in-ring competition after receiving a story-line head injury during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. This is due to an alleged neck injury, with the WWE and Jordan keen to prevent any further damage being done to Jordan, possibly in an attempt to avoid surgery.
The heart of the matter
However, the person closest to Jason Jordan, his wife April Everhart, has taken to social media to release a statement regarding her husband's injury that disputes Meltzer's claims and paints a much better picture for Jordan's wrestling future.
In the Facebook status, she confirms that Jordan does indeed have a neck injury and that he'll be spending time away from the WWE, which corresponds with the reports he's been pulled from house shows.
But Everhart asserts that it is nowhere near as serious as the internet rumor mill is suggesting and that he'll be back in action in no time. The evidence is there to support this, as WWE wouldn't have let Jordan near a wrestling ring during the Royal Rumble if he was genuinely losing grip in his hands as a result of his injury, let alone let him propel himself into a turnbuckle.
As April suggests, Jordan will be spending time at home to heal the injury and then will be back in no time. It seems that he'll miss the Elimination Chamber as a result, but judging from this new information I reckon we can safely say he'll be at WrestleMania.
On this occasion it seems that Dave Meltzer is misinformed. Alternatively, April could be playing down the severity and extent of Jordan's injuries. If indeed her words are true, this will be great news for the 29-year old wrestler's immediate future.
