The WWE superstar had been working with injuries for weeks leading up to his showdown with Bobby Lashley at last week’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
Zayn, real name Rami Sebei, went to get the damage checked out by doctors in Birmingham, Alabama, this week and went straight under the knife after the full extent of the damage was uncovered.
The 33-year-old told to WWE.com: “I just underwent surgery for my right shoulder, a.k.a. my good shoulder. So, I’m out for a little while with that.
“I guess people don’t know about this injury; I’ve been working with it for some time. I don’t know exactly when I tore it.
“I think I tore it, or initially injured it, on a Montreal Live Event. Which is ironic because I injured my left shoulder — now somewhat famously — in Montreal in my [Raw] debut against John Cena.
“At a Live Event this past August wrestling Jinder Mahal, I think I injured it then.”
He continued: “But then my left shoulder, a.k.a my bad shoulder, started to act up again as well.
“That shoulder hasn’t quite been the same since surgery anyway, so I had just kind of gotten used to the fact that that shoulder was the bad one.
“But it started to get progressively worse, so basically, long story short, it turns out I have two torn rotator cuffs.

“The left one and the right one are both torn. I just underwent surgery on the right one, and then in about six or seven weeks, I’ll be undergoing surgery on the left one, and hopefully I can come back healthy and happy.”
Zayn has not put an exact time frame on when he will return to the ring but hopes to be fighting fight for the Showcase of the Immortals next April.
He said: “I’d love to be in the mix for WrestleMania season; that’s the most exciting time of the year for all of us. I think timeline wise, I should be ready in time for WrestleMania, so fingers crossed.”
