On January 29 of 2016, Jaydon Elge suffered a season-ending spinal cord injury during a match. His doctors diagnosed the injury as Neuropraxia, meaning his nerves were  asleep/paralyzed. Elge was unwavering in his focus to walk again, and made miraculous improvements in his rehabilitation. 
As his amazing progress continued, doctors and rehab specialists cleared him to get back on the mat on May 3rd. Elge has been training and preparing since then, and will make his return to competition at the Grappler Fall Classic in Battle Creek, Michigan this Saturday.
