Jason Jordan underwent successful surgery this morning to decompress a nerve in his neck.
WWE announced the following this afternoon:
“Raw Superstar Jason Jordan underwent successful surgery this morning to repair a neck injury, WWE.com can confirm.
“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 said. “It was decided to do a minimally invasive operation to decompress the nerve, to allow it to heal.”
“The procedure Jordan underwent is called a minimally invasive posterior cervical microdiscectomy. It is not known just how long Jordan will be out of action.”
Jordan has not been wrestling in the last month due to what a report by Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer last week described as a serious neck injury. It was said to be serious enough that he had trouble gripping. However, a Facebook post by Jordan’s wife on Monday night said his injury wasn’t that serious and that he would be back in the ring soon.
