Monday Night Raw this week is looking very promising, with names such as The Undertaker, Shane McMahon, Dean Ambrose, Triple H, Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar scheduled for the show.

Recent rumors have suggested Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan will be returning to Raw tonight as well in Pittsburgh, and another name who hasn't appeared in the WWE for a couple of weeks could be doing the same.

According to PWInsider.com, via NoDQ, Roman Reigns is scheduled to make his return to WWE television on tonight's show.

The Big Dog has been off of WWE programming since being attacked by Triple H at the end of an episode of Raw on February 22. The incident saw him appear to have a broken nose, which caused him to bleed all over his face, and it later required surgery.

This beatdown by The Game was so that the former Shield member could undergo surgery on his nose for a deviated septum, which was apparently a legitimate injury. He has since been off television for several weeks recovering.

It also provided The Cerebral Assassin with the perfect opportunity to build himself up as a heel for Reigns to conquer at WrestleMania 32 later this year, which would hopefully result in The Big Dog being cheered when he wins the main event and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

While he has been gone, Triple H has had a mini feud with Dean Ambrose, which ended at Roadblock this past weekend, with The Lunatic Fringe being pinned by The Game during a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match. The company will be hoping this win for HHH has built him up further as a heel so that they can receive a positive reaction for The Powerhouse's return.

The reaction Reigns had been receiving from the WWE Universe as a face had been a lot of boos. This is not what the WWE wants for the face of the company, and so they wrote him off television for a while in the hope upon his return, he will be cheered.

However, returning during a WWE show in Pittsburgh, a crowd that has a very hostile history towards superstars, might not have been the best idea by the company, as he is more than likely still to return to a negative reaction. With the WWE still having to travel to Philadelphia and Brooklyn for the final two episodes of Raw before WrestleMania, don't expect the reaction to get any better anytime soon.

It may be a case of knuckling under now for the WWE until after WrestleMania, where they will most likely be hoping they can keep the title on Reigns for a while and he will eventually be cheered. If not, they will either have to turn The Powerhouse or Ambrose heel, or, as a last resort, stop pushing Reigns as the top babyface completely as it simply isn't working right now.
