Word started making rounds a couple of days ago that Sami Zayn was hurt and his injury was the reason why he was booked to lose to Bobby Lashley without putting much effort during his match at the recent Money In The Bank PPV.
However, now it has been revealed that the Raw Star’s injury is more serious than anybody may have thought and he is expected to be out of action for the remainder of 2018.
In an interview with WWE.com Zayn revealed that he had been working with a hurt shoulder for a while but he didn’t realize the seriousness of the injury immediately and waited for the things to get better.
Though when it didn’t heal up as Sami was expecting, he underwent some tests. The medical examination not only revealed a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder but his left, surgically repaired shoulder turned out to be even worse.
According to the former NXT Champion, the evaluation showed that he had torn the rotator cuff in his left shoulder as well and his right shoulder, in comparison, was the ‘good shoulder’.
Later in the interview, Sami Zayn also revealed that he underwent a surgery recently for his right shoulder and he is scheduled to go under the knife again to repair the damage in his left shoulder in 6 to 8 weeks.
While no time frame has been given for his comeback, in the beast case, Sami will be eying a return in time for WrestleMania 35 from New Jersey next year.
We’ll keep you updated on his condition.
