Jason Jordan appears to be confident that he will still wrestle again sometime soon despite rumors of an early retirement.
Medical advances have led to some amazing breakthroughs in the sporting world. In this instance, that includes professional wrestling. The number of tests and protocols a WWE Superstar has to undergo have increased massively in the space of the past decade alone. You would think those advances would extend the career of a wrestler, but not necessarily.
What it has actually unearthed is that many wrestlers of the past were probably competing when they really shouldn't have been. Whether it be concussion, neck problems, or something else, issues from a lifetime in the ring are now a lot easy to keep track of. That's why the likes of Paige, Edge, and Daniel Bryan for a short while were forced to retire before their time.
There have been rumors that the next name added to that constantly increasing list could be Jason Jordan. The former Tag Team Champion has been on the sidelines since January of this year when he and Seth Rollins lost the Raw Tag Titles to The Bar. Jordan has been working through some neck issues. There have been a couple of rumored dates where he was supposed to return, only for those rumors to not come to fruition.
I’m ready to attack this week and make huge improvements! I’ve been trying to keep my eye on the prize and look at the big picture. I’m still on the road to recovery and I’m very optimistic about getting back to where I belong! pic.twitter.com/hven7dXOFF— Jason Jordan (@JasonJordanJJ) November 11, 2018
Despite whispers that Jordan may never wrestle again at the age of only 30, the man himself remains positive. The former NXT Superstar normally posts glass half full type things on Twitter, and his tweet on Sunday morning was no different. Part of Jordan's tweet read "I’m still on the road to recovery and I’m very optimistic about getting back to where I belong!"
Clearly, Jordan still believes that sooner or later, he will wrestle again. There are a number of ready-made angles for him if and when he does come back. He could pair back up with Chad Gable, pick up where he left off with his on-screen father Kurt Angle, or interject himself into Rollins' business. We would personally like to see him reunite American Alpha, especially if it gets Gable out of the weird thing he has going with Bobby Roode at the moment.
