Former NXT Champion Sami Zayn has been confirmed for his long awaited return from injury during the tour.

He will return and compete in a triple threat match against Balor and Corbin during a show in Sheffield on Saturday.

It had been known for some time that Zayn would be travelling to the UK for the tour but it was only recently that it was revealed that he would be competing.

Zayn has been out injured for much of 2015 with his last match being against John Cena on an episode of RAW back in May for the United States Championship.

Following physical encounters with the current Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens during his NXT days, there have been questions over Zayn's health for a while.

Hopefully his upcoming return will grant him the chance he needs to once again become one of NXT biggest names.

Many have questioned where Zayn will fit in in the new landscape of NXT, but a match against Balor and Corbin is arguably the best way to bring him back.

Two time champion?

Current NXT Champion Finn Balor is currently on a collision course with his former tag team partner Samoa Joe.

Should Joe take the title off of Balor,  could Zayn be set to feud with the former TNA star in a bid to become a two time NXT Champion?
