The long list of WWE Superstars that have sustained serious injuries in the last year or so has gained another name.
After Daniel Bryan needed neck surgery, Roman Reigns suffered his hernia, Bad News Barrett went under the knife and Darren Young missed most of the year, we have a new star who is going to be off our television screens long term.
Ryder under the Knife
It has been confirmed today, that Zack Ryder will be out for the next six months after it was decided that he would be needing surgery on a torn rotator cuff suffered in his match against Rusev last week.
John Cena confirmed it on last night's WWE RAW that Ryder has to have surgery and will be out of action for 6 months. Cena went on to blame Ryder's injury on Rusev and The Authority after Ryder made a tweet about Team Cena.
It was revealed yesterday that Ryder revealed that he may have tore his rotator cuff and would possibly need surgery. This has now been confirmed. Ryder's last match was against Rusev on last week's RAW, where he got completely destroyed by the Bulgarian Brute and obviously not in a way that was planned.

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."
Well that was yesterday and now it is known that he does need surgery and will miss significant time out with a quite serious injury.
With all the budget cuts in the WWE going on, this could well signal the last time we have seen Zack Ryder in a squared circle in the WWE. That would be a huge waste of his talent and career that went downhill immediately after his stupid story line with John Cena.
So WWE fans, what do you think. Should Ryder be released or does he deserve another chance in the WWE after his injury? Tell us what you think in the comments below...
