Jason Jordan May Not Return to The Ring Despite Making a Cameo at WWE SmackDown

At Royal Rumble 2018, Jason Jordan wrestled the last WWE match of his career; he and Seth Rollins lost the RAW Tag Team Titles to Sheamus and Cesaro, ending their reign at 34 days.

Jordan was seen as a promising main eventer since being revealed as Kurt Angle‘s kayfabe son on the main roster. He was also supposed to retire the Olympic Gold Medalist at WrestleMania 34 but that career-defining role eventually went to King Corbin. Had it not been for his career-threatening injury, Jordan would be among the top Superstars in the company today.

Last week on Friday Night SmackDown, Jordan made a cameo appearance during Jeff Hardy’s shocking arrest in the opening segment of the show. This sparked rumors of Jordan’s in-ring return once again.

On the latest edition of Backstage Report Podcast on Fightful Select, Sean Ross Sapp reported that WWE has absolutely no timetable for Jordan’s in-ring return.

The former American Alpha member hasn’t wrestled for almost two and a half years due to issues in his neck and currently works as a backstage producer in WWE.

“Jason Jordan has been out of action for two and a half years with some neck issues. He has been a producer for quite a while, one that people seem to like rather well, but no timetable on his return or if he could ever return. Last I heard in the Summer of last year, he was having grip issues and there were no plans for him to come back.”

Jordan seems to be doing a great job as a producer and agent in WWE but he may not be able to wrestle again. Hopefully, the company will use him sporadically in more backstage segments in the future.
