Sami Zayn evaluated by WWE medical staff after NXT TakeOver: Rival
ORLANDO, Fla. — After suffering a nasty landing on the steel entrance ramp and taking four brutal powerbombs at the hands of new NXT Champion Kevin Owens, little is known about the status of Sami Zayn.
As TakeOver: Rival went off the air on WWE Network, WWE medical staff was seen tending to the fallen Zayn after the referee stopped the bout and awarded the NXT Championship to Owens. The evaluation continued backstage, as WWE COO Triple H and NXT General Manager William Regal kept a close eye on the proceedings.
Zayn, who is scheduled to travel to Abu Dhabi to join the main roster on WWE’s tour of the United Arab Emirates, tweeted an update this morning.
