Sami Zayn has undergone his second rotator cuff surgery today. Zayn has been off since losing to Bobby Lashley at Money In The Bank. He had surgery on his first rotator cuff back in June and has now just had the other one operated on. Zayn isn’t expected back until sometime in 2019.
Zayn was in good spirits and he posted a photo below:

It has been reported lately that Matt Riddle is on his way to the WWE soon, and to celebrate Riddle went and got the tip of his finger chopped off. The accident occurred during a match this past weekend at EVOLVE, where he lost the Championship to Shane Strickland. Riddle’s finger got clipped by a chair while they were performing and took a piece of his finger right off. PWInsider reports Riddle has been removed from some upcoming independent shows as a result.
No word on how this will affect Riddle’s expected start with WWE at next week’s NXT Takeover. Riddle’s mom posted pics of the injury:
Thank you for watching and checking in on him @prowrestling5star! Today Matt wrestled an intense hardcore match that involved tables, ladders and chairs. The first chair clip took the tip of his pointer finger off (wrong finger in my comment).? Blood within the first few minutes got the kids attention for sure. He explained to them today that he was going to wrestle hard, and it was going to be intense to watch. They smiled and said they couldn’t wait to see. It did rock them a little. Watching Dad get carried off like he did was not easy. Thankfully Fred got the wink he did at them on video! When he showed them how Dad gave them a wink as he was getting taken out they felt better.
