It was reported back on Tuesday that Jason Jordan underwent a procedure called a “minimally invasive posterior cervical microdiscectomy” and won’t be a part of the upcoming Elimination Chamber match.
As of right now, there is still a chance that Jordan may return for the WrestleMania 34 match that was rumored to be against Seth Rollins but that all depends on how quickly he can recover from surgery. According to several M.D. websites, most patients that undergo this procedure can return to work or recreational activities within a month after operation.
“Patients may return to light work duties as early as 1-2 weeks after surgery, depending on when the surgical pain has subsided. Patients may return to moderate level work and light recreational sports as early as 1 month after surgery, if the surgical pain has subsided and the neck strength has returned appropriately with physical therapy. Patients may return to heavy lifting and sports activities in 1-2 months if the surgical pain has subsided and the neck strength has returned appropriately with physical therapy.”
This is excellent news for Jordan because when the news first came out about his injury was being described as being similar to Arn Anderson and Chris Benoit and there was a chance he would be out of action for a year. It now looks that he could return mid-march but that is if there are no complications with his recovery.
