Sami Zayn Shares Update On Legitimate Injury

Sami Zayn Shares Update On Legitimate Injury WWE

WWE Tag Team Champion Sami Zayn has now provided an update on his legitimate elbow injury, following a recent injury angle.

While Zayn was originally set to compete on the August 7 edition of Raw, the popular star was pulled from the match after a backstage attack at the hands of JD McDonagh.

Following the show, it was reported that this angle was a cover for Zayn’s legitimate bursa sac elbow injury.

Zayn wasn’t out of action for long, with the tag-team champion facing off against McDonagh in singles action on the August 14 episode.

Speaking on Out Of Character, Zayn noted that his elbow issue is a ‘nagging injury’ that was exacerbated recently.

Opening up about his health status, Zayn said:

“I’ve had a lot of issues, I guess for a while that you’re just kind of battling through.

“It’s funny, when I watch sports, like hockey players or whatever, especially in the playoffs, after the playoffs are done, hockey’s particularly aggressive, the schedule’s grueling and everything like that. So once the playoffs are done, it’ll be like, ‘Oh, this guy was playing through a broken sternum and three broken fingers and a cracked tibia,’ or whatever, all these insane injuries that they’re playing through.

“But as a fan and as a viewer, I’m just watching, and I just assume everything’s fine. But I’ve been battling a lot of little nagging injuries for some time, but nothing to the extent that would put me on the shelf.

“So (my elbow) is part of a nagging injury that’s just kind of gotten a little bit worse after this past week’s heinous attacks by JD McDonagh, for which there will be revenge. But yeah, there have been some little injuries, but knock on wood, thank god, I’m pretty healthy overall.

“You start to think about this stuff a little bit more as you get older, and you’ve been doing it for 21 years, and you’re like, ‘Oh, there’s definitely not another 21 on the backside of this.’

“So you’re definitely closer to the end than the beginning. So maintaining your health and addressing those nagging injuries, I think that’ll become more important.

“But I still managed to give you a long-winded answer to a very easy question. My elbow’s alright, it’ll be okay. It’s not great, but it will be okay.” 

Zayn’s tag partner Kevin Owens is currently on the shelf due to an injury of his own, with Owens recovering from a broken rib.
