Hopefully it isn’t too bad. Wrestlers are like any other athletes, meaning that they can get injured at any given time. It’s a danger that every wrestler has to go through and that can be a major problem, especially if something happens that derails all of their momentum. This includes champions, who can have everything knocked out by an injury. Thankfully, this one might not be too bad.
Jordan Devlin has had a heck of a year, going from little more than another name on the NXT UK roster to the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Devlin has almost all of the tools that you could want in a wrestler and now he is getting the recognition that comes with being such a talent. However, he is not immune to injuries either and might be on the shelf for a bit with one.
Devlin has posted to Twitter that he has been diagnosed with elbow bursitis and will be out of action for about a week. The injury means that he was forced out of his date with Progress Wrestling due to a chance of making it worse or risking an infection. At the moment, there is no reason to believe that that will affect his WWE dates or his Cruiserweight Title reign.
Sorry to the @ThisIs_Progress fans and mgmt for missing #Chapter103 today. V.strenuous schedule lately and picked up a bit of elbow bursitis. It'll be fine in a week or so, I just didn't want to risk infection or aggravating it and prolonging my time out. See you guys soon. ?

Devlin has been on a roll as of late. Check out some of his recent hits:
Opinion: Thankfully this doesn’t sound like a horrible injury and Devlin should be back on his feet in no time. I know his independent dates are important but the WWE work is what matters most. If he’s only out a week, then it’s a good time to rest up and maybe let any other minor nagging injuries he has heal up. That could put him on a higher level and that could be a good sign for his future.
Do you like Devlin? How long will he be champion? Let us know in the comments below.
