WWE: Titus O'Neil's return to in-ring action has been revealed

WWE Superstar Titus O'Neil will finally be making his return to in-ring action in one week's time, according to reports.

The former NFL player hasn't been seen in the WWE since he was suspended for 60 days after grabbing the arm of Vince McMahon in the final moments of the February 8 episode of RAW.

With that suspension actually coming to an end on April 10, the fact that O'Neil's absence from the organization has already extended a full week longer than was necessary had led some to speculate about the mid-card talent's role in the business.

According to PW Insider, however, O'Neil is currently scheduled to take part in the April 25th episode of RAW in Hartford, Connecticut.

At this stage, there is no news on whether O'Neil's involvement will be part of the television broadcast or if it will be a dark match. Nevertheless, it is good to see that O'Neil is finally set to return to the WWE fold after over two months out.

The reality behind the decision to keep O'Neil away from the ring until this coming Saturday probably has more to do with logistics than the WWE looking to extend their punishment a couple of extra weeks.

With the WWE's roster currently in the middle of a European Tour, it obviously wasn't deemed necessary to fly O'Neil across the pond to make his comeback. The tour comes to an end this Wednesday with a WWE Live WrestleMania revenge show in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Before being suspended by McMahon, the veteran wrestler wasn't exactly a star that was high on the priority list for WWE fans.

The 60-day ban, though, has actually seen O'Neil enjoy an increase in support from the WWE Universe, many of whom felt the punishment handed out was far too harsh.

As a result, there has even been speculation that the WWE will look to capitalize on the new levels of interest in O'Neil when he does return to the ring. That could mean his RAW return is far more high-profile than his most recent work - a fairly low-key feud with Stardust.

However it plays out, O'Neil will be hoping that next Monday can mark the end of a difficult chapter in his WWE career. Although he has towed the party line during his enforced absence, the former Prime Time Player can't have enjoyed being made an example of by the organization.
