Sami Zayn

For those wondering why Sami Zayn’s match with Bobby Lashley last just over six minutes long at the Money in the Bank PPV this past Sunday, it was for a very good reason.

According to a report by Mike Johnson of, Zayn has been battling an undisclosed injury and has been working through it in recent weeks.

Zayn was not at the Monday Night RAW taping last night in Grand Rapids and it would appear his quick loss to Lashley at Money in the Bank was a way to write him off television for the time being. He was scheduled to travel to Birmingham, Alabama to further examine his injury. No other details are known at this time.
