An advertisement teasing the return of Sami Zayn aired this week on Raw, but the wrestler told Chris Jericho in a recent interview that he isn’t even close to being cleared.

Zayn was a guest on the latest episode of Talk is Jericho and when asked about being cleared from his injury said, “I’m not even close. I need a few more months.”

For clarification sake, the interview took place at the end of November. This means it’s possible he was even closer to being cleared than he thought at the time. 

As we previously reported, Sami has been out since June after suffering dual torn rotator cuffs.

Zayn says he’s currently doing rehab at the WWE Performance Center in the meantime and has been on a soul-searching mission during his time away from the ring. 

The full interview is worth a listen. Things get deep.
