There's currently no word on how or when the torn labrum was sustained, but Fandango hasn't worked a match since 25 June's Main Event taping. Whatever the case, the 36-year-old now faces a long, gruelling recovery process, having suffered the same injury that sidelined Finn Bálor for seven months following his Universal Title victory.
Fandango and tag partner Tyler Breeze joined Raw in April's Superstar Shake-Up. They've been used sparingly on the red brand, working only a handful of televised bouts since crossing over, and had seemingly slotted into an enhancement role on Main Event.
The duo's peak likely came last year, when their 'Fashion Police' act got over huge on Tuesday nights, earning them two SmackDown Tag Title shots in May. It remains to be seen what WWE will do with Breeze in his partner's absence, but this could be bad news for both.
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
