Injured Raw Superstar Likely Returning Monday; Backstage News on WWE Roster Cuts

— According to PW Insider, Jason Jordan is expected to return to WWE TV this Monday on Raw. He has been sidelined since January with a neck injury that ended up requiring surgery but has been spotted backstage on and off at WWE events over the past few weeks.

— As many have noted over the years, WWE usually releases talent from contract in the first half of the year as new wrestlers come up from NXT and some are released as a cost-containment measure. This year, while many talent have been called up, there hasn’t really been any cuts (except for extenuating circumstances, for example, Enzo Amore).

— According to WrestleVotes, the reason for this is because most talents have 90-day non compete clauses built into their deals and the speculation is that the company doesn’t want to let anyone go and have them appear on the September 1 “All-In” show. They go on to suggest that if any cuts happen, look for it to begin after June 4 which would then take the 90-day non compete through the first week of September and prevent any wrestlers from competing at All In.
