Welcome home. This year has been defined by the Coronavirus, which has changed almost everything about the way the world works. That certainly includes WWE, which has taken quite a few hits as a result of the pandemics. One of the biggest problems has been the lack of some wrestlers due to either health fears or travel restrictions, but one name will be back soon.
One of the most noticeable issues WWE has been facing over the summer has been their international superstars missing in action. So many countries have not allowed its citizens to travel to the United States over health and safety fears. This is quite the problem when WWE has so many international wrestlers. However, one of them seems to be ready to come back sooner rather than later.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, Robert Roode is scheduled to return to WWE television soon, possibly as soon as this week on Monday Night Raw. Roode has been stuck in Canada due to Coronavirus travel restrictions and has not wrestled on WWE television since Elimination Chamber on March 8. Roode was traded to Monday Night Raw earlier this year along with Dolph Ziggler in exchange for AJ Styles.
Robert Roode, who’s been away for months, is expected to return to RAW within the next week or two, possibly even tonight.

Roode is quite the star. Check out what Monday Night Raw is getting back:
Opinion: This is a good addition back to the Monday Night Raw roster as Roode is someone who can wrestle a nice match against anyone. He has a very basic style but does those basics very, very well which is incredibly valuable to any show. Roode may be 43 years old but you really wouldn’t know it, which is quite the compliment. WWE is lucky to have him back and it should be interesting to see who else makes their return sooner or later.
What do you expect from Roode? What should he do on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
