As reported earlier, several injured superstars are there on the WWE roster making a big void. The good news is some of the big names are gearing up to make a comeback in time for the big SmackDown debut on FOX Network. This could be helpful for the creative team to set up more compact angles including them. At least three superstars are likely to make imminent comebacks on the scene.
Drew McIntyre is the top-most name in this context who’s present on the injured list. As we noted before, the former RAW Tag Team Champion recently underwent minor surgery for an injury and it looks like this resulted in plans to get major shakeups. He is now all set to make a comeback to the scene as doctors may have already cleared him to wrestle.
As carried by wwfoldschool.com, this was the early planning for Drew McIntyre before injury affected his body,
“According to Tom Colohue, McIntyre was originally the favorite to win the King Of The Ring tournament and then feud with Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship.
However, WWE officials were forced to change plans when McIntyre informed them of his injury. This led to WWE pulling the trigger on “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt entering the Universal Championship picture and he’s now scheduled to face Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship inside Hell in a Cell.”

As per the reports of Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Drew McIntyre and The Usos are on their way back to the WWE programming. He did not reveal the exact timeline when it could happen. But it must happen soon depending on the storyline availability on either Raw or SmackDown. A top star like McIntyre can make valiant alterations if making the comeback.
As for the Usos, they can end up on SmackDown since their brother needs them badly on the current storyline. Roman Reigns is in a misbalanced feud against The Bludgeon Brothers. The Usos will likely resurface to lend help to their real-life cousin who is set to compete in a big match at Hell in a Cell. He will be teaming up with Daniel Bryan to take on the team of Rowan and Harper at the upcoming pay-per-view event set for October 6th.
