Welcome back. There are so many wrestlers on the WWE roster that it is almost impossible to keep all of them on television at the same time. At some point some of them have to go and that makes for some timely absences. It also sets up some nice returns down the line though, as you can get see someone come back, often in a surprise. That was the situation again this week in a big way.

Bobby Lashley made a surprise return this week on Monday Night Raw, announcing that his suspension was over and that he would be entering the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match. Later in the show, MVP tried to convince Lashley to rejoin the Hurt Business but was turned down. This was Lashley’s first appearance on television since the December 12, 2022 Monday Night Raw, when he was suspended for attacking WWE officials.
Lashley is a force. Check out what is back on Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: It’s nice to have Lashley back and I don’t think there was any doubt that he would be around for the Royal Rumble. Lashley has been one of the bigger stars on Monday Night Raw for at least the last year and it makes sense to have him in one of the biggest matches WWE presents. Things are starting to pick up on the Road To WrestleMania so having the bigger names around is a good idea.
What did you think of Lashley’s return? How will he do in the Royal Rumble? Let us know in the comments below.
