There are rumors that Sami Zayn could be returning a little sooner than expected. WWE has been advertising his appearance on the upcoming tour of England. Generally, the company does not do that unless the performer is going to be there. Zayn has proven to be quite a draw overseas, so there is a chance that he could just be making an appearance and not actually wrestling for NXT.

It appears that Sami Zayn recently attempted to test out his body inside of a professional wrestling ring to see if he is anywhere near healthy enough to make a return to NXT. Unfortunately, though, it does not seem like his body is quite ready yet. Initially, Zayn was projected to make a return in October, but his body did not heal as expected. Management is concerned that he has lost all of the momentum that he built up.

When Sami Zayn was first injured earlier in the year, many knew that he was going to need surgery and some time away from the ring. However, the exact amount of time has never been revealed. Well, reports have now surfaced that the former NXT champion is going to be on the sidelines until at least the end of 2015. Early 2016 is the estimated return date.

The folks in NXT are doing another Takeover show, and the main event has been revealed. Sami Zayn will make his much anticipated return to the ring and challenge Kevin Owens for the heavyweight championship. For those that do not now, Zayn was written off of television for several weeks to heal up some of his injuries. The event will take place at the Full Sail University on May 20, 2015. More details about the card will be revealed next week.

In order to sell the brutal beating from Kevin Owens and to hide the fact that he was overseas with the main roster, WWE kept Sami Zayn off of television. That ends next week, as the former heavyweight champion is scheduled to make his television return to NXT. As of right now, he is penciled in to cut a very powerful promo about losing the belt to his former best friend. The character will also come up with a way to get a rematch for the title.
