Jordan has been out of action since undergoing neck surgery in early February. There were plans for him at WrestleMania but plans changed once he came to the realization that it would be better for his health to take care of his neck issues. The news on his neck was first reported back in January and the company attempted to keep him on TV while taking limited bumps.
Thankfully, the neck issues were not serious enough to keep him out for the rest of the year. When he underwent surgery, it was described as a “minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve.”
At the time of his departure from WWE TV, it was explained to the viewers that Kurt Angle made the decision to send him home until he could be medically cleared to compete.
