Summer Rae hasn’t wrestled since August of 2016, and while she has shared that she’s dealing with an injury, details have been minimal concerning the nature and prognosis for recovery.
A new report details that she’s rather close to a comeback, and the timing looks great as there are several opportunities opening up where the former football player could be used.
On Raw, the brand she’s technically a part of, Sasha Banks looks set to turn heel soon and this may leave Bayley as the only babyface on the roster (depending on what goes on with Dana Brooke post-WrestleMania). Summer’s best work’s been as a heel, but she could excel at either role if given the chance.
Or, a perhaps more intriguing option, is she could jump to SmackDown, where a multi-woman championship match is looming for WrestleMania 33.
In fact, in reporting that Summer is down in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center working on getting cleared for a return, Squared Circle Sirens says Vince McMahon has talked about using both her and Emma in the blue brand’s title tilt on April 2.
Emma’s return to Raw has been promoted for a long time now, and it would seem strange for her to jump ship now, but it could be a better choice for Summer Rae.
