Report: Jason Jordan promoted to WWE Lead Producer

WWE’s YouTube

Unfortunately, Jason Jordan’s in-ring pro wrestling career ended just as it was getting started. A neck injury in early 2018 forced the former collegiate wrestler to have surgery, and cut off his push as Kurt Angle’s “son” on Raw.

The silver lining is that it seems to have revealed Jordan’s true calling in the business. He started working behind-the-scenes producing matches, and been impressing WWE higher ups with his work. According to PWInsider, that’s now lead to Jordan being promoted to Lead Producer.

The position opened up when John Laurianitis moved back into his old role atop the Talent Relations department. Insider’s Mike Johnson reports that Adam Pearce has also been promoted as part of the backstage changes, but Pearce’s new title and responsibilities haven’t been confirmed yet.

As Lead Producer, Jordan will oversee the other producers. No brand is mentioned in the report, so it’s not clear if this is for Raw, SmackDown, or both.

Either way, it’s exciting news for the 32 year old - and perhaps a sign the changes President Nick Khan is making at WWE will be seen in the ring as well as in other areas of the company.
