Sami Zayn reportedly taking time off due to injuries


A new report indicates that Sami Zayn will be taking time off to heal from nagging injuries.

Pro Wrestling Sheet reported today that Zayn is off the road currently to heal from knee and shoulder injuries that he has been wrestling with for a while. He will be reportedly travelling to Birmingham, Alabama to get the injuries checked out.

Before being called up to the main roster, Zayn injured his shoulder in a match against John Cena on WWE Raw for the United States title back in 2015. He spent the next seven months on the shelf before returning to NXT, eventually being called up at the 2016 Royal Rumble.

Zayn lost to Bobby Lashley this past Sunday in what was considered a largely one sided match that ended their feud. He had been paired with Lashley following WrestleMania, most infamously bringing Lashley’s sisters to Raw in a much derided segment.

There is no current timetable for when Zayn will return.
