Former WWE Champion and SmackDown! superstar Edge suffered a very similar injury to Cena’s back in July. He too was forced to relinquish his World Heavyweight Championship after surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle.
Edge is featured on the promotional poster for this year’s Survivor Series. That event takes place on Sunday November 18th from Orlando, Florida. Edge is expected to make his return to television in the weeks leading up to the PPV. He is expected to return to the World Heavyweight title picture immediately.
Former ECW Champion and RAW superstar Bobby Lashley is currently shooting for a December return to the ring. Lashley originally injured his left shoulder at April’s backlash PPV. He worked through the injury for several months but badly aggravated it on the July 30th episode of RAW. He saw Dr. James Andrews and had surgery performed that same week.
Both men had main event spots on their respective brands. Their returns will give a much needed boost to WWE’s thin roster.
