One more shot? An injury is the kind of thing that can destroy anything that a wrestler has going for them. You never know when it might sneak up on you and that is the kind of thing that can take away all of the momentum in the world in the blink of an eye. Some of these are a lot better than others, with the rare instance of an injury ending a career instantly. That seemed to be the case, but that may not be the case.
Back in 2017, Jason Jordan got the break of a lifetime as he was announced as the illegitimate son of Kurt Angle. This sent Jordan onto the biggest run of his career with Jordan turning into a rather obnoxious heel who fell back on the fact that he was Angle’s son for everything. He and Seth Rollins won the Tag Team Titles, but then the bad news came. Jordan’s neck was in horrible shape and required surgery, which has kept him out of the ring for nearly two years. However, all hope might not be lost.
Angle was recently interviewed by Chris Van Vliet where he discussed a lot of topics, including Jordan’s injury status. During the interview, Angle mentioned that Jordan is in need of another surgery to fix issues with his circulation and strength in his left hand. Angle suggested that if those problems are fixed, Jordan may be able to return to the ring. It is not known when Jordan is scheduled to have the surgery or when he might be considered to return to wrestling, if he ever is at all.
It was an interesting interview. Check out the full thing, plus Jordan and Angle in WWE:
Opinion: This is a situation where I’ll believe it when I see it. WWE does not like to mess with these neck injuries unless everything is cleared up and I’m not sure I can see that being the case with Jordan. It’s a shame that he had to be taken out of the ring when he did because he was just starting to get the character aspect to go with his natural wrestling skills. Maybe he can get back in the ring one day, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
Do you think Jordan will get back in the ring? What would you want to see him do? Let us know in the comments below.
