SAMI ZAYN is ready to follow best friend Kevin Owens by returning to WWE.
The 34-year-old, real name Rami Sebei, last appeared on WWE television back in June when he was defeated by Bobby Lashley at Money in the Bank.
Following that setback he underwent double shoulder surgery and was expected to be sidelined for anywhere up to a year.
Now Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer has reported the former NXT Champion is ready to get back in to the ring.
Now it appears he is just waiting for WWE’s writers to work him back into storylines.
And that could mean we may see him in action at WrestleMania 35 on April 7.
Zayn recently appeared on WWE legend Chris Jericho’s podcast to discuss his comeback.
And he told “Talk Is Jericho” he was in no rush to get inside the squared-circle.

The Canadian said: “Maybe I’m overstating my lack of desire to return. I do miss performing, but like [Jericho] said, I’ve been doing this a super long time.
“We’re on the road a lot. [Jericho] know[s] how it is. I just know that when I’ll be back, I’ll probably enjoy it.

“But I’m not sitting there itching and clawing [to return]. And I don’t know that my employer will want to hear that, like, ‘does this guy not care?’
“But, no, I’m not even close [to being cleared to return]. I need a couple more months!”
Zayn’s boyhood best mate Owens shocked fans on SmackDown Live last night by making his return to the ring.
The star had been out since October after knee surgery but was immediately handed a WWE Title match at next week’s FastLane PPV against Daniel Bryan.
WWE owner Vince McMahon handed the Prize Fighter his shot as a replacement for Kofi Kingston.
