One of the biggest shocks coming out of last night's episode of Monday Night Raw, which took place in Montreal, Canada, saw hometown boy Sami Zayn made his main roster debut.
The crowd popped for the former NXT World Champion who was announced by Bret Hart as he accepted John Cena's United States Championship open challenge.
Zayn put up a good fight against the 15-time world champion and even managed to lock in his Koji Clutch finisher for what looked like a submission win and the Blue Thunder Bomb for a two count, but after a springboard stunner followed by an AA, Cena retained his United States Championship.

Zayn looked to be so excited during his entrance that he threw his arms up and he seemed to pull something in his left shoulder. He then spend a large portion of the match trying to move it around and fix it, but a back body drop made it look like he needed medical attention and after the doctor looked at him, he deemed Zayn fit to continue.
However, since then things have taken a turn for the worse. WWE announced on Tuesday that the former NXT Champion will undergo an MRI following a shoulder injury in his match with John Cena.

WWE explains that the MRI will take place on Wednesday and will determine the extent of the injury. This morning WWE tweeted the following.
The superstar, who found fame under the name and mask of El Generico, will be hoping that the injury is less serious than feared as he looks set to face former friend Kevin Owens at NXT Takeover: Unstoppable in just over two weeks time.
Zayn lost his NXT Championship to Kevin Owens a few months ago in what was a sickening match, as Owen completely dominated Zayn. Since then Owens has been out with a knee injury and underwent surgery, before he was cleared to wrestle at this NXT event.
Zayn will be hoping he doesn't join the injured list and lose his chance of revenge over Owens, but given the fact that he managed an entire match against John Cena with the injury last night, it is likely that he should be medically cleared to compete.
