Sheamus has a torn labrum in his left shoulder that will require surgery to repair and is expected to be out 4-6 months. The procedure is scheduled for next week.
According to an article on dot com, the former WWE Champion suffered the injury during the Money in the Bank All-Stars Ladder match and it was further aggravated over the following weeks. MRI results indicated the injury would indeed need to be surgically repaired.
“We performed a specialized MRI with a dye inserted to highlight the structures within the shoulder joint," said WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann in a new article on dot com. "Doctor Samson and I both reviewed the film, and it appears that Sheamus has a cartilage [SLAP] tear.”
Sheamus will undergo arthroscopic surgery next week to fix the tear.
"I’ve never in my whole life had to have surgery,” Sheamus said. “I’ve always worked through pain. For the first time in four years, I’m going to be out of action.”
He continued, “To say I’m devastated would be a serious understatement, but I’m determined to take this time to go home to Ireland to see my family, to see my friends, learn a different language, read a lot of books, and come back bigger, stronger and better than ever.”

Richard Reacts: The MITB All-Stars Match was brutal. I remarked at the time when we were hearing of everyone else's knocks that Sheamus took the worst bumps. Now we see that while Sheamus is tough as nails, not even he is immune to serious injury.
