After facing the injury season, it looks like WWE is slowly trying to get over it, as the superstars are slowly coming back into action and with speculations running high with the returns in near future. Cesaro returned last month and now is competing for the Intercontinental championship whereas the franchise Cena has already announced his return to WWE Monday Night Raw’s Memorial Day edition on May 30th. We have also a seen glimpse of Randy Orton who was present at the Hall of Fame 2016 and gave a hint of returning anytime soon.
Now we have got some official hint around these bunch of superstars’ return by none other than CEO of the company, Vince McMahon when he was in the midst of a conference hall to discuss the WWE’s first quarter earnings of 2016. He addressed how WWE was hit by a serious wave of injuries at the end of 2015 and in his exact words “made some pretty good chicken salad with it”, reports pro-wrestlingsheet.com. The chairman also mentioned that most of the superstars are expected to return to in-ring action in June.
With John Cena announcing his return on May 30th, it was earlier reported that Seth Rollins had started training at WWE’s performance Center in Florida. Rollins tore his ACL, PCL, and meniscus in a match against Kane at a live event in November last year. He then underwent reconstructive knee surgery. The expected recovery time for the injury was said to be out for 6 to 9 months. But seeing him training with a knee brace we can expect his return much earlier.
Randy Orton got injured on October 15, 2015, during a live event in Chicago and underwent a successful shoulder surgery whereas Bray Wyatt suffered a calf injury in a match against Roman Reigns during a live event in Milan, Italy. The high-flyer Neville, too, hurt his ankle during a match against Chris Jericho prior to Wrestlemania which barred him competing at the ladder match for the Intercontinental championship. Cagesideseats.com reports that Neville too eyeing his return in June.
