Top NXT star cleared to make TakeOver: Unstoppable return

Published 1 Comments

When Sami Zayn made his WWE debut in his home town of Montreal, many thought the injury he sustained would put him out of action for weeks.

When Zayn made his way to the ring, much to the delight of the crowd in attendance at Monday Night Raw that evening, his trademark move upon the steel steps of throwing his arms up in the air resulted in a shoulder injury.

Big news

Although it was first believed that this injury would see Zayn face months away from the ring, Triple H recently revealed during a press conference that he will be fit to appear in his scheduled match at the WWE NXT TakeOver: unstoppable pay-per-view event this Wednesday night.

This will be welcome news to many professional wrestling fans as the main event match will see Zayn battle it out against Kevin Owens, his long-term friend and now rival.

In addition, during this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, there was yet more news of NXT stars being promoted to the main WWE roster as Owens made his own debut.

He came out to turn down the opportunity to face John Cena in his US Open title challenge on the night, but instead was confirmed to face Cena at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event at the end of this month.

During his time on the microphone while in the ring with Cena, Owens explained how he is the reason that Sami Zayn got injured months ago and that come Wednesday night, Zayn will never be able to return to a wrestling ring once Owens is finished with him.

Different angle 

There is however, still a chance that Triple H's confirmation of Zayn's comeback is false as the injury the 30-year-old sustained doubtlessly looked more long-term than has been announced.

The build up to the main event match at the NXT special has nonetheless been impressive and even if some form of interruption is made by another NXT star if Zayn is unable to compete, we will be sure to see an incredible match up.

In reality, Triple H may well have made such an announcement in order to throw followers of NXT off course when really it would come as little surprise if he is actually unable to compete.

Either way all will be revealed when the live event airs tonight exclusively on the WWE Network, with a whole host of exciting matches also on the match card.

The live special will also see two impressive women's matches with Sasha Banks looking to defend her title against former partner Becky Lynch while Charlotte & Bayley will hope to reconcile their differences as they take on Dana Brooke and Emma.
