Jason Jordan underwent a neck surgery (minimally invasive posterior cervical microdiscectomy) on Tuesday. WWE Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon provided the following details to the WWE website: “He had an injury to a disc in his neck which resulted in significant pain that was refractory to all conservative measures. It was decided to do a minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve, to allow it to heal.” Read more at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: The story does not offer any timeline for when Jordan will be able to return to the ring. He appeared for WWE in several tag matches over the last few weeks even though he didn’t physically get involved. WWE wrote him off of television last night by having Kurt Angle tell him to go home and get healthy. Here’s wishing Jordan the very best in his recovery.
