-Jason Jordan underwent minimally invasive neck surgery yesterday, the day after appearing at Raw. He had been having issues with pain and with his grip, which was a concern. “He had an injury to a disc in his neck which resulted in significant pain that was refractory to all conservative measures,” said WWE Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon in a WWE.com article. “It was decided to do a minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve, to allow it to heal.” There’s no timeline yet for his return, but Kurt Angle “sent him home to get better” on Raw. Jordan had been avoiding wrestling the last couple of weeks, but it was worked into the storyline.
