Update on Sami Zayn's WWE Status and Health

Update on Sami Zayn’s WWE Status and Health

As noted earlier this month, it was believed that a creative decision was what led to Sami Zayn working as a manager to Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura these days instead of wrestling. Sami has dealt with shoulder issues for some time now and there was speculation that those issues are what kept him out of the ring, but a report earlier this month said it was a creative reason.

In an update, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports this week that Zayn is still bothered by his shoulder issues, and this is one of the key reasons why he rarely wrestles these days and is mostly working as a manager.

Sami was reportedly medically cleared to compete a while back, but there’s no solid word on if that was recently changed or not. Regardless of his official medical status, word now is that the shoulder issues are keeping him from regular in-ring action. The report from earlier this month did note that Sami could be kept out of the ring as a precautionary measure for the shoulder issues.

Sami has worked very few matches since late summer 2019 – a few live event multi-man matches, and a SmackDown multi-man dark match at the end of December.
