It's hard to envision a WWE faction that's been more snake-bitten over the years than The Shield. Seth Rollins tore his ACL in late 2015 and missed half a year, while Roman Reigns had to miss the team's first reunion match at TLC after suffering the mumps virus.
Then last month, Dean Ambrose suffered a severe triceps tear that required surgery and will keep him out of action for up to nine months. The creative team then wrote in Jason Jordan to replace Ambrose as Rollins' tag team partner.
But lady luck continues to be against The Shield. According to PWInsider.com, Jordan missed this weekend's shows, and it's unknown if he will appear on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw. PWInsider has not yet learned what the injury is, nor if it's serious.
On last week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Jordan teamed up with Rollins and Reigns - where they lost to Finn Balors and Gallows & Anderson in a six-man tag team match. Jordan did not appear to have suffered any obvious injuries during the match.
If Jordan has to miss extended time, this would be a major disaster for the WWE and its creative team. Never in a million years could they have expected to (potentially), lose two different Shield members long-term.
And the list of injuries to WWE superstars goes beyond The Shield. It was reported last week that Paige will be forced to retire after suffering another neck injury during the Dec. 28 house show. Samoa Joe is also dealing with a foot injury, which could force him to miss the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Jan. 28.
Jordan came over from NXT last year, being introduced as the storyline son of Raw GM, Kurt Angle. Despite strong wrestling skills, a lack of microphone skills have hurt Jordan's efforts to get over with the crowd.
A sudden union with The Shield was supposed to help his momentum. Let's hope that this reported injury doesn't keep him out long.
