Vince McMahon Says Major Stars Returning

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has apparently gone on record to say that four major stars who have been on the injury reserve are ready to make their triumphant returns in the coming weeks in the WWE. Of course, this means that the likes of John Cena, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt, all of which have been absent within the first Quarter of the WWE year, in one way or another.

McMahon made the announcement Tuesday morning, during the WWE’s 2016 First Quarter Earnings conference call. He went on to say that he believed the company made “some pretty good chicken salad” out of the mass amount of injuries, which resulted in the call up of up to 13 new additions to the main roster.

Said McMahon (excerpt from the conference call transcript, courtesy of

“Creative talent, in terms of our status there, we’ve had a lot of injuries even coming into WrestleMania, and we’ve made some pretty good chicken salad out of that. Coming in the next 30 days so many of our stalwarts are coming back into the fold. There are approximately 17 alligators [ph] have been injured that are coming back, including Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, John Cena, and so many others.

And even probably a better stat is that, over the last three months, we’ve introduced 13 new talent, which is extraordinary and speaks to the strength of our NXT brand and how that is building these extraordinary talents coming up. So we have probably more talent coming in the next 30 days on the roster than we have ever had before.”

 Reports have already confirmed that Seth Rollins began training again in the ring without the assistance of his knee brace in March, though, his return date as of this time is still up in the air. Cena is set to return to action on the Memorial Day edition of Monday Night RAW, which still leaves Orton and Wyatt’s returns in question. But, with the revelation that McMahon himself gave during the conference call, it would be within the next month that all four stars would return to action, along with many more to follow.

The additions would make up for the recent releases of talent in the last week or so by the company.
