Zayn Likely Undergoing Surgery on Rotator Cuff

Tuesday, May 26

Mike Johnson of PW Insider reported Zayn is in Birmingham, Alabama and is likely undergoing surgery on his rotator cuff. 

On May 5, inficated Zayn suffered a shoulder injury in pursuit of Cena's United States Championship.  

As usual, Cena issued his open challenge for the U.S. title. That brought out Bret Hart, who introduced Cena's next challenger: Zayn. The two had a good match, which the champion won with two Attitude Adjustments.

It was the perfect kind of match to introduce Zayn to any fans unfamiliar with his previous work.

Of course, the injury could stunt the momentum Zayn built. It would be a shame if he had to follow that great bout with a prolonged spell out of the ring.
