Jason Jordan underwent successful neck surgery on Tuesday morning. The news was first reported by WWE.com. This would explain why he has been removed from all live events.
“He had an injury to a disc in his neck which resulted in significant pain that was refractory to all conservative measures,” WWE Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon told WWE.com. Maroon said that it was a minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve.
The surgery, according to WWE.com, is known as a minimally invasive posterior cervical microdiscectomy. There’s no word on how long he will be out of action. The story about his neck issues was first reported on Sunday by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio and it was later downplayed by his wife but it’s clear now that the neck injury was serious.
We send our best wishes to Jordan and we wish him a speedy and complete recovery.
