Welcome home. With so many stars on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to figure out a way to get noticed. There are certin stars who are much bigger than others though and most of them have been a World Champion at some point in their careers. It can mean a lot to have one of them show up, and that is what we got to see again this week in a surprise return.

The opening match of this week’s SmackDown saw Solo Sikoa defeat Sheamus. Following the match, Sikoa went to attack Sheamus again but Drew McIntyre returned to make the save. This was McIntyre’s first appearance in an arena in over a month as he was out of action with an ear injury. McIntyre’s first match back has also been set, as he and Sheamus will challenge the Usos for the Tag Team Titles next week on SmackDown.

This was a good one. Check out the return, plus some more of McIntyre’s 2022:

Opinion: It’s great to see McIntyre back, as you never want to see someone out of action for any length of time. In addition, McIntyre is one of the biggest stars in WWE and certainly on SmackDown. It means a lot to have him back as he can be inserted into a major storyline in a hurry. The Tag Team Title match sounds good too and a title change would not be out of the question.

What does this mean for WWE? Where do you see McIntyre going from here? Let us know in the comments below.
