Zack Ryder had a match last night with Mike Kanellis prior to “Raw” that was to be recorded for “Main Event”. In that match, he suffered an injury. Here’s his Instagram post below:
This picture was taken last night before my match against @therealmichaelbennett on @WWE #MainEvent. We both treated it like we were wrestling on #Raw…but unfortunately, I suffered a knee injury. While the rest of the roster is flying to Saudi Arabia today for #WWEGRR, I’m flying back to Orlando to get a MRI. I’ll keep you posted……and I’ll be back.
As he says above, this means he won’t be making the trip to Saudi Arabia for the Greatest Royal Rumble. We’ll keep an eye on this story and update as more details about his injury become available.
Botch Take: What a shame. He just got moved to “Monday Night Raw” and now he’s out. This doesn’t bode well for him given his lack of meaningful usage.
