Football News

Zack Ryder has always been a WWE Superstar that can generate rumours, but yesterday the former United States Champion started a bit of a stir on social media, when he posted the following

Cryptic tweet

"Sorry to my European Zack Pack...won't be making the tour this year...I'll let you know why in a few days when I have definite news."

This led to many of the WWE Universe fearing the worst and thinking the time had finally come for the under used superstar to face his release. 

Troubling times

With all the budget cuts WWE are being forced to make and the fact that releases has been raised as the next cause of action, it would be easy to believe that WWE could release Ryder. After all, he is used as a jobber whenever he is on WWE TV, he hasn't been in an actual WWE storyline in years and none of that seems to be changing any time soon.

The former Tag team champion waited almost two hours before he posted the actual reason for his absence:

"The Internet people love to twist words to make a story...here's the deal...I tore my rotator cuff...MMMAAAYYY need surgery...relax."

Growing injury list

So Zack Ryder adds himself to the already long list of WWE superstars on the treatment table. This includes Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan and Darren Young, all who should be making a successful WWE return in the near future. 

As for Zack, a torn rotator cuff is quite serious because it deals with the four main tendons in your shoulder and if he requires surgery then he will have to work to get the strength back in his arm, that could take several months.

It would be hard to say that people would realise Zack is missing, but considering over the past few weeks he's been destroyed by Rusev, but he did manage to pick up his first singles win in almost two years over Fandango when Layla distracted him. Sadly this didn't lead to a storyline feud for Zack and he still remains one of the most talented and underutilised wrestlers in the locker room.We can only hope that changes when he makes his return in 2015.
