Tye Dillinger’s last televised WWE match happened on the September 25 episode of SmackDown Live – with The Perfect 10 scoring a DQ victory over Shinsuke Nakamura thanks to an attack from Randy Orton.
At the time, it looked like a frustrated Dillinger was set for a feud with The Viper. However, in reality, the attack was done so Tye could go off and get surgery on an injured hand.
A report from PWInsider claims that Dillinger is close to an in-ring return – joining the likes of Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, The Bludgeon Brothers, Sin Cara and Fandango on the list of injured stars nearing a comeback to the squared circle.
The news of Dillinger’s WWE return will come as a bit of a surprise to those who follow the former NXT star on Twitter – as a number of tweets posted over the last little while have hinted at a departure from the company.
Departures from WWE have been the main topic of debate this week, after reports claiming the likes of The Revival and Mike & Maria Kanellis requesting their respective releases from the company have all surfaced.
Maria has since denied asking for her release, for the record.
