Sheamus is nearing a return to the ring.
The former World Champion hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Edge on the August 18th episode of SmackDown. While the bout was Edge’s last in WWE, the Irish star was also forced into a break from the company.
While there’s been no official comment, it’s been reported that Sheamus has been dealing with a “really bad” shoulder injury.
However, it seems that he’ll be back on WWE television very soon. The star is currently advertised for SmackDown shows on November 24th, December 8th, and December 15th. Furthermore, writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer notes that he’s “listed to return” on November 25th — This is the day of Survivor Series.
It’s widely expected that Randy Orton will be making his in-ring return at the same event.
