Welcome back. There have been a lot of returns to WWE over the last few months and there is nothing to suggest that they will be ending anytime soon. It can mean a lot to have someone come back to the ring after some time away and sometimes it isn’t even after a major absence. That was the case this week, as multiple stars made returns after hiatuses of varying lengths.
In addition to the previously reported Sarah Logan, four former champions also returned to WWE television this week on SmackDown. Logan returned along with former Raw Tag Team Champions the Viking Raiders to attack both Hit Row and Legado del Fantasma. In addition, Jinder Mahal wrestled for the first time since July, losing to Braun Strowman in the first round of the SmackDown World Cup. Commentary mentioned that Mahal had been dealing with a knee injury. Finally, Sheamus returned at the end of the show to attack the Bloodline, who had injured his arm last month.
It was a big night. Check out the returns in action:
Opinion: That is certainly a busy night and the good thing for WWE is that other than Logan, there was no major return from an extremely long hiatus. It is very cool to see so many names back and you can probably pencil in Sheamus to lead the Brawling Brutes against the Bloodline at Survivor Series in one way or another. Mahal and the Raiders are nice additions as well as it was certainly an eventful night.
