• Real Reason Behind Sami Zayn Not Wrestling Much These Days
Former NXT Champion Sami Zayn doesn’t wrestle much these days and works as the manager of Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Zayn was dealing with shoulder issues a while back (he underwent double shoulder surgery last year):
“Zayn was having trouble with his shoulders in recent months which is why he’s been wrestling less and has been managing Nakamura. But we’re told he’s okay now and can wrestle but this is the role they have him in.”
