WWE posted a kayfabe injury update on Sami Zayn following the powerbomb spot from Kevin Owens at last week’s NXT TakeOver: R Evolution show. Rather than re-word a storyline update, I’ll provide an excerpt below:
WWE.com was able to confirm that while Zayn had full movement and sensation in his arms and legs after being powerbombed onto the ring apron by Owens, WWE Medical staff decided to take the newly crowned champion to nearby Winter Park Memorial Hospital for further examination.
X-rays of his spine came back negative, as did a CT scan of his head. Ultimately, he was diagnosed with cervical and thoracic muscle strains. Zayn was held overnight for observation. The NXT Champion is currently resting before starting physical therapy at the WWE Performance Center. He is expected back within three to four weeks.
