Amir Jordan May Require Shoulder Surgery

Following his NXT UK departure

Amir Jordan's world in NXT UK has come tumbling down in recent months. He and Kenny Williams looked to be on the cusp of capturing the NXT UK Tag Team Championship in early March, but Jordan's tag team partner turned on him following the match. The former friends then embarked on a short feud and Jordan departed WWE's British brand following his loss to Williams in a Loser Leaves NXT UK match. 

Jordan has since put out a video on social media addressing his departure and he reflected on his time in NXT UK. 

"So, it's been a few days now. I'm sure everyone saw what happened the other day. I have to leave NXT UK. I remember three years ago when the initial list of competitors was announced for the UK Championship Tournament, the one name that everyone was surprised to see on there was mine. They said, 'He's too inexperienced, he's too new, he's not ready for this.' But what they didn't see was the fact that I left behind a well-paid career, spent all my money going out to train in Canada, I destroyed my car, I nearly destroyed myself. I had to get a Megabus just to sign my WWE contract, and while you may never see me wearing [NXT UK apparel] ever again, for those three years, I got to not have to wear a suit and tie and sit at a desk and go do a job I didn't want to do because I got to live my dream," Jordan said. 

"For that, I'm thankful. I'm thankful to everyone at WWE, all the way up to the catering staff for the banoffee pie because that will definitely be missed. I'm thankful to the fans because, while I know that you may not have been there in the building the other day, you were there with me."

As he continued, Jordan also revealed he's been dealing with a long-term shoulder issue and may require surgery. 

"I've had this nagging shoulder issue for so long now. I'm waiting for the doctors to come back with the scan results. I might need surgery and I don't know what that means for me. I've been observing Ramadan and Eid is just around the corner, so I'll be spending a little bit of time with my family. I need to get my head right. I don't know what's going to happen going forward here but what I do know is, I'm going to need to do something," Jordan added.
