— WWE.com posted the following update on Jason Jordan 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.
— As seen last night on Raw, WWE obviously knew this was coming as they wrote Jordan out of storylines with his “father” Kurt Angle sending him home until he was medically cleared to return. According to sources, Jordan was trying to deal with the pain and avoid surgery so he was kept on TV, but in a non-wrestling capacity. While this “minimally invasive” surgery is not going to keep him out of action for a year had he elected for major surgery, he will still likely be gone for a while.
