Welcome back. The injury bug has been strong in the WWE as late with a host of names being put on the injured list. Some of these are far worse than others but anything that makes a wrestler miss ring time is a bad result. Each injury is different of course and some people are going to be out a lot longer than others. With so many people out though, there are already some updates on when they’ll be back in action.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, several names on the injured list are due to return to the ring in fairly short order. At the moment, Jason Jordan (out since late March due to neck surgery), Charlotte (out since mid-June to repair a ruptured breast implant) and Dean Ambrose (out since December with a torn bicep) are all on their way back to the ring.
Jordan is currently waiting on a story to be written for him and will be back as soon as the story is ready, meaning the estimated time is hard to guess and is pretty much up in the air at this point. Charlotte will be back in about three weeks, or early August. Finally, Ambrose will be out until the end of the summer.
Here’s how Ambrose went out, complete with Jordan involved.
Opinion: These aren’t the worst results in the world as all three seem pretty close to being back in the ring. They can all be used at the moment as Jordan was on a role, Charlotte was the top star in the SmackDown women’s division and Ambrose is a former World Champion. All three would be a nice boost to their divisions and could offer something fresh to either show. Ambrose making a surprise appearance at Summerslam certainly wouldn’t shock me either.
Which of these will make the biggest impact? Who will win a title first? Let us know in the comments below.
