• Old School ECW Manager Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Manager Joel Gertner celebrates his 44th birthday today.
Joel Gertner could work the mic like hardly anyone else in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling could (besides Joey Styles, that is), so Joel was used as an occasional ring announcer and also doing commentary from time to time, before he was put in the role that most Old School 90s Fans will remember him for, the manager of The Dudley Boyz.
After ECW closed its doors in early 2001, he was briefly seen in NWA Total Nonstop Action! (2002) and appeared at several official & unofficial ECW tribute shows like ECW One Night Stand 2005, Hardcore Homecoming (2005) and TNA Hardcore Justice (2010).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOEL GERTNER!
• Jason Jordan’s In-Ring Career Could Be Over
According to the Wrestling Observer, there’s very little hope for Jason Jordan’s in-ring return in WWE:
“Jason Jordan, who also gets asked about, is less likely to return. You never say never, but in his case, it wasn’t looking good and there has been in the past the feeling that his career could be over.”
Jordan underwent neck surgery back in February 2018 and hasn’t returned since then. Jordan is still facing issues with his gripping power and inability to make a fist in one hand (and can’t fully control the same hand).
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

Jordan now works as a backstage producer in WWE.
Before his neck surgery in 2018, there were plans for Kurt Angle vs. Jason Jordan to take place at WrestleMania 34, with Jordan defeating his storyline father to pick up the biggest win of his career.
Below are Jordan’s accomplishments in WWE:
– 1x RAW Tag Team Champion (with Seth Rollins)
– 1x SmackDown Tag Team Champion (with Chad Gable)
– 1x NXT Tag Team Champion (with Chad Gable)
