RAW will not be able to count on the Canadian Sami Zayn until next year since the same fighter has revealed that his two shoulders were broken and he must undergo surgery before he can return.
Zayn told WWE that he has two broken rotator cuffs and undergo surgery to repair one of them today in Birmingham, Alabama. No exact date is yet known about when Sami Zayn could return to action but he said he expects to return in time for “the road to” WrestleMania 35.
Sami Zayn’s words about his injury:
“I guess people don’t know about this injury; I’ve been working with it for some time,” Sami explained. “I don’t know exactly when I tore it. I think I tore it, or initially injured it, on a Montreal Live Event. Which is ironic because I injured my left shoulder — now somewhat famously — in Montreal in my [Raw] debut against John Cena. And at a Live Event this past August wrestling Jinder Mahal, I think I injured it then.”
But then my left shoulder, a.k.a my bad shoulder, started to act up again as well. That shoulder hasn’t quite been the same since surgery anyway, so I had just kind of gotten used to the fact that that shoulder was the bad one. But it started to get progressively worse, so basically, long story short, it turns out I have two torn rotator cuffs. The left one and the right one are both torn. I just underwent surgery on the right one, and then in about six or seven weeks, I’ll be undergoing surgery on the left one, and hopefully, I can come back healthy and happy.”
Sami traveled to Alabama to determine the severity of his shoulder injuries. Zayn says he was told he would need surgery after an MRI on “the bad shoulder.” No specific date was provided for his return but Sami says he would like to be “on the road” to WrestleMania.
In this way, we can confirm there is no official WWE announcement that Sami Zayn will not be on the RAW tours in Spain next November.
