Bobby Lashley Teases WWE Return On Social Media

Could 'The All Mighty' be set to return ahead of schedule?

Bobby Lashley

Bobby Lashley has been stuck on WWE's injury reserve since shortly after the 15 July episode of Raw, with Fightful reporting a three-month absence and an anticipated return date of 2 November.

Now, it looks like 'The All Mighty' is trying to generate hype for an ahead-of-schedule comeback.

It started with him posting this phoenix gif on Tuesday afternoon:-

The following day saw Lashley say this as a response to a fan suggesting he interfere in next week's Kofi Kingston vs. Brock Lesnar match:-

So, could Lashley be set to return to WWE television as soon as next Friday's SmackDown on FOX? The usual caveats apply here - wrestlers are always working, pinch of salt, etc. - but it's possible that his recuperation has gone better than expected.

The former Intercontinental Champion was injured at an unfortunate time, having just concluded a fun feud with Braun Strowman. It looked like WWE had finally figured out how to present him as a hyper-athletic monster when he was struck down. Let's hope that they haven't forgotten this in his absence, and that Lashley is able to make a big impact on Raw or SmackDown.
