WWE has had a change of heart with Sheamus and his impending return from an injury. Initially, the plan was to have him making his comeback on the next episode of Smackdown. For whatever reasons, management has decided to postpone things. The belief is that there are people in the company who are pushing for the former world heavyweight champion to make his return at the Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant instead.

For those that might not have noticed, Sheamus has not worked a televised match for WWE since November. The reason for that is because he was sent back to Europe for the holidays, so that he could heel an assortment of injuries and ailments. Management wanted him to be fresh because they intend on giving him a substantial push upon his return this month. They feel that now is the right time to put him back into the main event scene.
