In his first match after being switched to Raw in last week’s Superstar Shake-up, Zack Ryder suffered a knee injury on Monday night.
The former Intercontinental Champion then revealed on Twitter that suffered the injury during a match taped for WWE Main Event, where he faced Mike Kanellis. As of a result of the injury, he is missing this Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia since he had to stay in the United States to undergo an MRI in Orlando, Florida.

Ryder was out of action for seven months after suffering a knee injury during a battle royal on SmackDown LIVE in December 2016. It’s unclear at this time if he injured the same knee.
