Welcome back. One of the biggest trends of the new WWE regime has been the amount of returning superstars. After several wrestlers were released over the course of about a year and a half, a good number of them have returned now that Triple H is in a position of power. All kinds of returns have taken place and now another former champion has made a surprise appearance.

This week’s Monday Night Raw featured a ladder match between the Miz and Dexter Lumis. Late in the match, Bronson Reed, known elsewhere as Jonah, made a surprise return to take Lumis out, allowing Miz to win the match. Reed, 34 years old, is a former NXT North American Champion who was released from WWE in 2021. Following his departure from WWE, Reed wrestled for Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Reed was a star in NXT. Check out some of his time there:

Opinion: This is the kind of return that can be very interesting, as Reed never got a chance to show what he could do on the main roster. Reed is a monster with a great looking flying splash but you can only do so much without being given a chance to get out of NXT. I’m curious to see how this goes and Reed could be a heck of a force now that he seems to be on Monday Night Raw.

What did you think of the return? How will Reed do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
