The WWE has had to deal with a number of high profile injuries in recent months but fans were today given hope that one star's return isn't too far away.
Alongside the likes of Goldust, Rusev, Sami Zayn, Tyson Kidd and Hideo Itami, Jey Uso has been sidelined for much of 2015 after picking up a shoulder injury way back on March 12.
But, after initially having been given a prognosis of at least six months out following surgery to heal the injury, a social media post by the Superstar today has raised hopes of an early comeback.

After initially keeping fans up to date with his recovery with regular photos posted online, today's image is the first of its kind for six weeks and the wrestler's #UsoComingSoon hashtag has led many to assume a return the ring can't be too far away.
Any comeback before around September time would be seen as a huge boost considering the six month timeline initially mooted.
Starting where he left off?
The injury has already cost Jey, and his brother Jimmy, a shot at a WrestleMania tag-team match up and it is clear the star is doing his best to limit the time he misses from here on out.
Prior to requiring surgery The Usos had been developing an exciting feud with Cesaro and Tyson Kidd. A serious kneck injury suffered by Kidd in the time since, though, means that, even if Jey Uso does return to WWE events in the near future, that feud will have to be put on ice until 2016 at least.
Considering the current climate of injury around the WWE just now the company will be looking to make the most of any positive news.
That being said, they won't want to rush Jey Uso back into high intensity action with the risk of an injury relapse always a concern. You only have to look to Daniel Bryan's current situation - back on the sidelines again after months away - to see that.
While no-one knows for sure just how serious Jey Uso's #UsoComingSoon message was, the excitement it has generated amongst some WWE fans shows just how much they are looking forward to seeing the main roster back fit and healthy.
