WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle talked about Jason Jordan on the latest "Kurt Angle Show" podcast.
Angle talked about his storyline with Jordan, why Vince McMahon paired him with Jordan, and he discussed the neck issues that led to the end of his in-ring career. Angel said that Jordan is having issues with his motor skills to this day.
Angle said had a similar surgery to repair a similar injury. Kurt was asked if he still has lingering effects:
"I can't feel my two pinkies at all," Angle said. "I've had a lot of problems with my motor skills. My arms went numb for periods of time. I've lost about three inches in both arms so my arms have atrophied."
Angle said that he opted not to get neck fusion surgery and it has led to more problems. He said, "So it's tough. I mean, you know you when you do the surgeries, these quick fix surgeries, that's what Jason did, that's what I did, instead of doing fusion, you're going to have some problems down the road. So you know, eventually I'm going to have to have fusion. I should have had it already and I didn't."
