WWE News: Kurt Angle provides an update on the return of Jason Jordan
What's the story?
As part of the Elimination Chamber kickoff show, WWE presented #AskAngle and he was asked about his son Jason Jordan. It seems that the RAW General Manager is slightly disappointed by the timing of Jordan's injury but did reveal when he expects the former Tag Team Champion to return in a few months.
In case you didn't know...
Jason Jordan recently underwent neck surgery after he suffered a neck injury and was then creatively kept on WWE TV for a number of weeks since he was still Raw Tag Team Champion at the time.
Jordan inadvertently cost Rollins the Championships at The Royal Rumble after he sat out most of the match before blind tagging his way out and leaving Rollins to deal with Cesaro and Sheamus. He later cost Rollins his rematch a few weeks later since he came out and attacked Cesaro and Sheamus which caused Rollins and his partner for the night Roman Reigns the match.
This was also Rollins' last chance at the Tag Team Championships, which is why Rollins has since moved forward and into the Elimination Chamber. Whilst Rollins has since been able to move forward into the main event of the Chamber pay-per-view it seems that Jordan has been written off TV since he was sent home by his father on Raw a few weeks ago and hasn't been seen since.
The heart of the matter
Kurt Angle was asked about his son when the fans on Social Media were part of #AskAngle and the General Manager revealed that Jason Jordan would be returning to the company shortly after this year's WrestleMania.
The timeline for Jordan's return was unknown since neck surgery usually leaves many wrestlers on the sidelines for a number of months, much like Nikki Bella who was out of action for more than a year. This is good news for Jordan though since he can slot back into the Monday Night Raw picture whilst the heat surrounding him and his father's reunion is still fresh.
Jason Jordan will be returning to the WWE in the coming months and it seems that he could pick up the storyline that the seeds have already been planted between Seth Rollins and his former Tag Team Champion.
Jordan was injured at the worst possible time when it seemed as though he was going to go into his first singles match at WrestleMania against Seth Rollins. It's great news that he won't be sidelined for as long as many other stars who have suffered neck injuries in the past, but it will be interesting to see how WWE reinsert him into Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania.
