According to a report from PWInsider, via Wrestling Inc, former WWE tag team champion Nick "Eugene" Dinsmore could be being brought back to WWE in some capacity soon.

Eugene's Return

The report states that the WWE and Dinsmore have been in communication over recent weeks, but it is not yet known if he is coming back for an on-air role or as a coach at the WWE Performance Centre.

This comes as a surprise only due to the fact that it was reported last year that Dinsmore was working towards creating his own indie promotion and wrestling school in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Dinsmore has had an up and down career over the years with WWE, who he has had three separate stints with in the past.

The first came between 2004 - 2007 where he was a featured member of the Raw roster as the controversial character Eugene. In this run, he managed to win the then WWE World tag team Championship with William Regal and had major feuds with Triple H, Kurt Angle and Mr McMahon. His first run came to an end when he was released on 1st September 2007 after failing a 2nd drugs test.

In July 2009, Dinsmore resigned with the WWE and returned on Raw on 10th August against the Miz. 4 days later though, he was released again.

Dinsmore returned for a third time on 20th September 2013 as a trainer for NXT. He lasted for a year this time and was released on October 2nd 2014. This was also a surprise though as at the time Dinsmore was considered to be a good trainer and was well liked backstage. At the time last year though there were rumors last year that he may have gotten on the wrong side of a colleague which led to his release.

Nothing Wrong

Though this was cleared up in an interview with AngryMarks.com where he was asked if politics played a role in his departure:

"I didn't do anything I felt on my part to get fired, but that's the way big business goes sometimes - sometimes you just don't get an answer. There was no ill will, I didn't burn a bridge, I didn't do anything wrong so - I'm actually happy just to be able to get out and start performing again and make a splash on the independent scene."

He also stated that: " I just wasn't the right fit for this time, and I understand that but 'never say never' brother because I've been back to WWE three times so you never know that's gonna happen in the future."

Both sides seem to be open to a return for Dinsmore as there is no bad blood between the two parties. If he does return, can the fourth time be the charm for the man who seemingly cannot hold down a job with the WWE.
