WWE: Sami Zayn's Injury is looking serious

Published 1 Comments

This past Monday on Raw we witnessed the debut of former NXT Champion Sami Zayn.

It will appear that we will not see Zayn again on Raw for a couple of months due to the injury he sustained prior to the match that became more intense during the match. You will recall that at one point during his match with John Cena, Sami Zayn was back body dropped and landed badly.

Doctors advised Zayn to stop the match and wanted to look him over, Zayn would have nothing to do with that and continued.

Recurrent Problem

This is also the same injury that he suffered at the hands of Kevin Owens coupled with a concussion at the Take Over: Rival match when Kevin Owens defeated him for the title. Zayn was out most of March and April.

Zayn went for an MRI Tuesday, but no official word has come yet to determine what his status is, however, sources told the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that this injury is serious. Backstage talk at Tuesday’s taping of Smackdown says Zayn could be out for 2 to 3 months rehabbing.

It needs to be stated that this only a rumor. It is possible that not even WWE or Sami Zayn know how serious this issue is. It’s also stated that he was set to work Smackdown but the script was rewritten without him on the card.

Takeover Trouble?

This begs to question the elephant in the room: What about his championship rematch against Kevin Owens at NXT Take Over: Unstoppable? While NXT was taped weeks ago, and it is obvious that what is aired on the Network Wednesday did not take into account Monday’s injury, they did run a recently recorded voice-over adding Zayns’ match with Cena and questioning the 20th’s title match.

Zayn himself publicly denied any shoulder issue from his previous injury, calling it a “very minor” medical issue. Now the question has to be asked. Yes, Sami Zayn is a phenomenal talent. Yes, he is one of the most innovative wrestlers WWE ever signed. But, one has to ask, is Sami Zayn injury prone?

Once he is cleared, how long will it be before that same injury returns? Or another concussion? This same sort of scenario showed itself with former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio and now, as we speak, with Daniel Bryan’s neck.

What does the future hold for Sami Zayn? Hopefully, a good one.
