On the latest Kurt Angle podcast on, Angle covered the career of Jason Jordan, who now works as a Producer backstage in WWE.

Angle talked about the injury that Jordan suffered that ended his in-ring career:

"What happens is your vertebrae, you have discs in between each vertebrae, and when you injure your neck, the disc slides. What happens is it slides to the side, so it's sticking out of the vertebrae, and you have nerves that come out of the vertebrae, and those get blocked by the disc. Then you can't feel your arm and you don't have motor skills with one arm or both arms, depending if they slide both ways. So usually, it's just one way, and you can't feel one arm and you can't use one arm. That's what Jason was having trouble with. His disc slid and blocked the nerves to his arm.”

"He's done a fantastic job as a producer. He found his calling. Don't get me wrong, he would have been a great professional wrestler, WWE superstar. But his calling is definitely producing. He's really good at it.”

Kurt said Jordan is still suffering from his injury to this day:

“He has problems to this day. His motor skills, his hands, are on and off all the time. He just can never get right. I'm not sure why that's occurring with him because with me at least, I got relief at times. With him, he's never gotten relief. He’s been really struggling with it for years.”
