Kevin Owens.

Kevin Owens set to return from injury in late-February

For all the complaints surrounding Monday Night Raw in recent weeks, it's easy to forget the superstars they are missing.

Roman Reigns is, of course, the most notable absentee given he had to walk away from the Red Brand and relinquish his Universal title after being diagnosed with leukaemia for a second time.

On top of that, superstars like Goldust and Fandango are on the shelf with different surgeries and nobody seems to know when Jason Jordan will be returning, if ever.

However, further up the card, both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are ruled out with long-term injuries with the former having surgery on both knees and the latter having surgery on both shoulders - talk about bad luck!

Owens was last seen on Raw putting Bobby Lashley over on his way out which signaled a heel turn for the former ECW champion and Owens looked like he might be turning face himself.

It wasn't known how long Owens would find himself on the sidelines while he recovered while Zayn was expected to sit out anything from nine months to a year.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, "Kevin Owens is due late February, early March but they may hold him off until after WrestleMania.”

KO would have a full month to get into a programme if he were to return at that estimated date, but as Finn Balor learned ahead of WrestleMania 33, WWE often holds off for that night after WrestleMania surprise.

Owens & Zayn

Of course, WWE may be hesitant to jump straight in with a feud for Owens given his type of injury, or they may well want to bring him back alongside Zayn who has been on the shelf four months longer than his compatriot.

If both Zayn and Owens were to be ready for WrestleMania - as is expected for both - WWE should consider having them return to win the tag team titles. The Raw tag division is in a sorry state right now and it would be the perfect spot for the pair to regain some momentum and add some star power at the same time.
