Welcome back to back. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and as a result it means that some are going to fall through the cracks. For one reason or another, there are a few people who just are not going to be around very often. It might be due to an injury or due to some issues backstage, but now we might be seeing one of each of them coming back soon.
Two missing WWE stars may be returning to Monday Night Raw this week. First up, according to Fightful Select, “imminent” plans for Asuka to make her return, possibly to feud with Becky Lynch in a short form story. Asuka has been out of action since July with an arm injury. There is no word on when her first match back might be. This is not considered to be definitive, as plans are not set in stone.
Second, according to Fightful Select, Mustafa Ali may be returning to WWE television as well, though there is no word on what he might be doing when he gets back. Ali has been absent from WWE television since October 2021 after a disagreement with Vince McMahon over a potential creative direction. There is no word on whether Ali will be under a new gimmick if or when he returns.
Fightful Select has learned that WWE has internally discussed bringing Mustafa Ali back to television.

Opinion: I could go for having both of these two back, if nothing else because it would be nice to have Ali actually getting on television again. It seemed like he would never actually appear again and now we might be getting to see it happen. Then you have Asuka, who is one of the best stars in all of the company, which means having her back would be a nice boost to either women’s division.
