With former WWE Champion John Cena out of action for 7-12 months following surgery, two other top stars are getting ready for their own returns. Edge and Bobby Lashley both had surgery several months ago we have a big update on when we can expect to see both men back in action.
Former WWE Champion and SmackDown! superstar Edge suffered a very similar injury to Cena’s back in July. He too was forced to relinquish his World Heavyweight Championship after surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle.
Edge is featured on the promotional poster for this year’s Survivor Series. That event takes place on Sunday November 18 from Miami, Florida (Edge resides in Tampa). Edge is expected to make his return to television in the weeks leading up to the PPV. He is expected to return to the World Heavyweight title picture immediately.
Former ECW Champion and RAW superstar Bobby Lashley is currently shooting for a December return to the ring. Lashley originally injured his left shoulder at April’s Backlash PPV. He worked through the injury for several months but badly aggravated it on the July 30th episode of RAW. He saw Dr. James Andrews and had surgery performed that same week.
Both men had main event spots on their respective brands. Their returns will give a much needed boost to WWE’s thin roster.
