Sorensen hasn’t competed since breaking his neck in a match at TNA Against All Odds in February 2012. The injury was diagnosed as a C1 vertebrae fracture with spinal cord edema and caused him to temporarily lose movement in his arms and legs.
The injury occurred after taking a knee to the back of the neck by Zema Ion. Sorensen admitted earlier this year the injury strained their friendship but they have since reconciled.
While Sorensen has been out of the ring, the company had him working in production to keep him on the payroll.
