Amir Jordan reveals that he may be injured badly enough to go under the knife shortly after he lost his position on the NXT UK roster.
On the most recent episode of NXT UK, Amir Jordan lost to his former tag team partner Kenny Williams in a no disqualification match. Because of the rules of that match, Amir Jordan is now off of the NXT UK brand.
In a new video released on Twitter, Jordan reflected on his time with the brand and all of the trials and tribulations it took for him to get to WWE.
“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. 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.”
Continuing on, Amir Jordan revealed that he's been struggling with a shoulder injury and he is currently waiting for doctors to let him know if he's going to require surgery to repair the injury.
“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.”
Kenny Williams now moves on as a singles competitor but next week’s episode of NXT UK will be all about the women and determining a new top contender for Kay Lee Ray’s NXT UK Women's Championship. Learn more here.
