The Royal Rumble is going to be in Pittsburgh this upcoming Sunday, and so will Chris Jericho, who happens to be working the same auto show that Sheamus is scheduled for. That has led to speculations and rumors that Jericho will be making his return to WWE this weekend.
With Brock Lesnar and Batista already confirmed for the event, there are rumors that Sheamus might not be making his return at the Royal Rumble. WWE wants him on the Wrestlemania card, so they do not want his return to be overshadowed.
With Mark Henry and Sheamus backstage today, there's rumblings that a big return could be taking place at the Survivor Series tonight.
While nothing has been confirmed just yet, the belief in WWE is that Sheamus will be back by the beginning of 2014.
