That’s a good reason. Every now and then, almost every wrestler is going to need a little break from being in the ring. For one reason or another, they just need to be away from wrestling for a little while. It might be due to a personal issue, it might be a way to freshen them up a bit, or it might be to deal with an injury. Unfortunately the latter seems to be the case this time around with an NXT UK star.

Earlier this week, Amir Jordan lost a Loser Leaves NXT UK match against Kenny Williams, forcing him to leave the promotion. There is no word on where or when Jordan will be wrestling again, but we may have an idea of why he is leaving. Jordan has released a video announcing that he might be needing shoulder surgery. It is not clear if this is why he lost the match.

This means a lot to him. Check out the announcement:

Opinion: This would certainly explain a lot and it would not surprise me to see Jordan coming back one day, perhaps on 205 Live or something like that. He is definitely talented, but the team with Williams did not do him the most favors. At least he is getting the chance to get fixed up so that he can be back at full strength, as a healthy Jordan is a lot better than a banged up one.

What do you think of Jordan? Where will he wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
