Sami Zayn is returning soon to WWE television. On this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, a video aired hyping Zayn’s return. They did not provide a date and the video simply said that Zayn would be “coming soon.”
Zayn has been out of action for several months due to injuries on his left and right shoulder. Zayn underwent bi-lateral rotator cuff surgery in August. Typically, that type of injury would indicate a 4-6 months recovery time. It’s been 5 months since the surgery so that falls within that timeline.
Raw will be taped for the next two weeks so it would make sense to hold off his return until they go live again in January.
Zayn’s return coincides with WWE’s attempt to freshen up the show with new Superstars and fresh match-ups. They have also promised to stop “suffocating” the talent so hopefully, that will mean a renewed push for Zayn when he returns.
