Vince McMahon recently announced that the WWE would be seeing the return of four superstars really soon.
John Cena, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, and Randy Orton are all expected to be back competing in the ring once more between now and six weeks time, with Cena being the only superstar with a confirmed date of return, being Memorial Day on May 30.
However, one superstar who is also still out injured wasn't given an update in Mr. McMahon's announcement, Neville. The British superstar has been out since before WrestleMania 32 after he fractured his ankle during a match with Chris Jericho in March, and was expected to be out for two to three months.

Cageside Seats have reported that fans may not have to wait much longer for the former NXT Champion to return to the ring, as they said: "Neville is expected to make his return within the next month or so as well."
If this is true, Neville is on track with his current recovery, which is great news to hear.
When the Slammy Award winner picked up his injury two months ago, it was a devastating blow for him as it meant he would miss his first ever WrestleMania. He was rumored to be booked in the multi-man match for the Intercontinental Championship and possibly win the title as well on the grandest wrestling stage of them all.
Due to his injury, Neville was replaced by Zack Ryder, who did go on to win the IC title, but he only held it for a day as he lost it the following night on Monday Night Raw to The Miz. Ryder then he lost his rematch later on in the week on SmackDown, eliminating him from the title picture. If this was Neville's spot, he might not have lost the title.
A fatal four way for the Intercontinental Championship is currently scheduled for Extreme Rules between The Miz, Kevin Owens, Cesaro, and Sami Zayn. You have to wonder though if Neville wasn't injured, would he be the IC title holder and involved in this match?
Upon his return to the ring, The Man That Gravity Forgot needs to be inserted into a title picture and hold a championship as well. Last year, he won Breakout Superstar of the Year at the Slammy's when many thought it would be Owens because Neville is yet to show anything to deserve the accolade.
Having him win a title, and possibly going through Owens along the way could give him the credibility to reach the next level in his WWE career and show why he is a breakout star and one to watch in the company. SummerSlam later this year would be the perfect opportunity for him to achieve this.
