Well hello there. Much like any other business or industry, there are going to be some people in wrestling who have one controversy after another. It can get annoying, but if they have enough to offer to a company, you are going to see them time after time. That is certainly the case with WWE, where some wrestlers keep popping up over and over again. One such wrestler made a surprise return this week.
There were few stories as fascinating in 2019 as the rise and fall of Lars Sullivan. After being rumored for a call up and WrestleMania feud with John Cena, Sullivan did not appear for several months due to anxiety issues. He debuted the night after WrestleMania 36, destroyed some wrestlers, and then went on the shelf with a horrible knee injury. Around the same time, various homophobic and prejudiced comments made by Sullivan from before his time in WWE began to resurface. It was then revealed that Sullivan had acted in pornographic films. Sullivan’s future was in jeopardy, but now things have changed.
This week on SmackDown, Sullivan made his return, attacking Jeff Hardy, Matt Riddle and the Miz. The return marked Sullivan’s first appearance on WWE TV since June 2019 after his knee surgery. Sullivan had recently released some videos showing himself training for a return to the ring. It was announced that Sullivan will be added to Monday Night Raw’s Draft pool, meaning it is not clear which show he will appear on.
Well that was a surprise. Check out what is coming to WWE:
Opinion: I’m actually surprised by this one and it’s in a good way…I think. Sullivan was clearly a big project for WWE and it could be interesting to see where he winds up. You can’t find a monster like him every day, though at the same time, some of the comments he said are very hard to ignore and forget. WWE seems to be ok with it, though I can’t imagine Sullivan survives if anything else comes up.
What do you think of Sullivan? What should he do next? Let us know in the comments below.
