Jason Jordan Working With WWE Creative, Oney Cuts 205 Live Promo
Posted On July 5, 2020
RAW Superstar Jason Jordan has been sitting in on important WWE creative meetings as of late, according to @Wrestlevotes. Jordan’s ideas and opinions are reportedly viewed in high regard. It was reported back in December 2018 that Jordan had been working backstage as a producer since he was able to return to the road with WWE. Jordan has been out of action since February 2018 after undergoing neck surgery.
There is no word yet on when Jordan might be cleared to return to the ring, but he continues to work with doctors in Birmingham, Alabama. It was reported in January that Jordan was still having issues with his gripping power, his inability to make a fist in one hand and his inability to fully control the same hand. It was also noted that WWE Officials gave him the work as a producer because his in-ring return was pushed back.
As previously reported, the tournament to determine a New #1 Contender to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy for WrestleMania 35 will continue on Tuesday’s episode of WWE 205 Live as Oney Lorcan faces Humberto Carrillo while Akira Tozawa faces Cedric Alexander. The tournament kicked off last Tuesday with Drew Gulak defeating The Brian Kendrick and Tony Nese defeating Kalisto. The winner of Gulak vs. Nese will go on to the finals to face Lorcan, Carrillo, Alexander or Tozawa. The tournament winner will then challenge Murphy at the biggest show of the year.
Below is video of Lorcan sending a warning to Carrillo ahead of their match on Tuesday.
“This message is for Humberto Carrillo,” Lorcan said. “This Tuesday night, WWE Network, 205 Live, Cruiserweight Championship tournament. Oney Lorcan vs. Humberto Carrillo. I know you said you were going to do your best, and I know you really want to go to your first WrestleMania, Humberto. That’s not going to happen. Nothing will stop me from winning this tournament and nobody is going to stop me from going to WrestleMania. It’s not your time, Humberto.”
