Ex-WWE Superstar sparks return rumour after backstage selfie emerges

Published 4 Comments

As the WWE Brand Split draws ever closer, it seems like not a day goes by without speculation about one former Superstar or another returning to the company.

With two distinct rosters to fill come the WWE Draft on July 18, the organisation is reportedly doing its best to flesh out its talent pool by bringing back wrestlers of yesteryear to accompany the product's current stars.

Those rumours had a new ex-Superstar to focus on today after a selfie, apparently taken backstage during this past Monday's episode of RAW, appeared online and sparked speculation.

As reported by NoDQ.com, Jimmy Wang Yang - a seven-year veteran of the WWF/WWE during the 2000s - was backstage for the July 4 RAW broadcast and hinted at a meeting with Vince McMahon with the following image:

The photo was accompanied by the words, "“Waiting on my meeting ?#?RAW? ?#?JWYorAKIO? ?#?Partybuses?.”

The former star of the Cruiserweight and Tag Team Division last wrestled in the WWE in 2010, so his presence at RAW has inevitably got the internet wrestling community talking about a potential return.

Moreover, Yang has fuelled speculation by retweeting basically any mention of his possible comeback on Twitter. And, on the night of RAW itself, the veteran wrestler posting another cryptic message hinting at big WWE plans to come:

Although the 35-year-old's return wouldn't be anywhere near the same league as a Kurt Angle or Hardy Boys comeback, the general response from WWE fans to the rumour would suggest the company could do worse come Draft night.

With just a few weeks to go, the WWE Universe doesn't have long to wait before discovering what Vince McMahon and co. have in store for them. This week's selfie, however, might have just revealed one move already.
