Welcome back. There are all kinds of injuries that take place in the wrestling world and some of them can be a lot more serious than others. As soon as someone gets hurt, one of the most important questions to ask is how long will they be out of action. You never know how long it might be, but hopefully it isn’t overly serious. One recently injured wrestler made his television return this week after a good while away.
This week’s SmackDown saw the return of King Woods, as he defeated Ridge Holland in less than a minute with a small package. Kofi Kingston was originally scheduled to face Holland but brought out Woods as a surprise, though the ring announcer had already mentioned Woods’ name. The match was Woods’ first on television since the January 7 SmackDown due to a calf injury, though he returned to live event matches earlier this month.
It was worth the wait. Check out Woods’ return:
Opinion: It’s always good to see someone coming back from the injured list like this as a calf injury is the kind of thing that could keep a wrestler on the shelf for a long time. Woods always injects some life into a show and that was the case again here, even in such a short match. Odds are he’ll be in a tag match at WrestleMania and that is a good place for he and Kingston, as always.
What did you think of Woods’ return? What do you want to see him do at WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
