WWE News: Jason Jordan underwent surgery, details revealed
When will the "Son of Kurt Angle" return?
What’s the story?
Controversy had surrounded Jason Jordan’s injuries, but the WWE released an official statement regarding the Raw Superstar’s status. The latest info from WWE reveals that Jordan successfully underwent surgery to fix a neck injury.
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, going on to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships with Seth Rollins to close out 2017. However, a recent injury has lead to Jordan being used less as WWE builds towards WrestleMania.
The heart of the matter
The following was the press release WWE issued regarding Jordan’s neck surgery and his status going forward:
“He had an injury to a disc in his neck which resulted in significant pain that was refractory to all conservative measures,” WWE Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon said. “It was decided to do a minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve, to allow it to heal. The procedure Jordan underwent is called a minimally invasive posterior cervical microdiscectomy. It is not known just how long Jordan will be out of action."
This announcement from the company confirms rumors that the former NXT Tag Team Champion was being kept out of matches and was placed in a minimal role to find out what the issue was.
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 Championship against Cesaro and Sheamus. However, Jordan did very little in the match and it resulted in The Bar winning the titles.
Jordan was expected to face off against Rollins or Angle for WrestleMania 34, but Jordan’s injuries may prevent him from competing in New Orleans in two months.
The recovery time for a posterior cervical microdiscectomy usually requires 10 weeks of non-strenuous activity, but WrestleMania is nine weeks away and could mean that Jordan is out of WrestleMania.
Wrestling on the "Grandest Stage of Them All" is every Superstar's dream. It is very disappointing to see Jason Jordan miss his chance of being a part of WrestleMania due to injuries and subsequent surgeries. I would like to wish Jason Jordan a speedy recovery.
