Date of Seth Rollins' actual in-ring return has been revealed

Last week, Seth Rollins announced his return from injury exile in spectacular fashion as he cut short Roman Reigns' Extreme Rules celebrations to pedigree his former Shield teammate.

Since then, The Architect has twice appeared on RAW to secure a World Heavyweight title match against Reigns at the upcoming Money on the Bank pay-per-view. But WWE fans are still waiting to see Rollins complete his comeback by actually performing in a match.

Back in action

Well, for a small section of the WWE Universe at least, that wait is only going to be another three days. That's after the WWE revealed Rollins is set to feature in a triple-threat match at Friday's live event in Odessa, Texas.

As reported by NoDQ.com, Rollins will be facing off against both Roman Reigns and AJ Styles in the squared circle on Friday evening. It is going to be a busy weekend for the 30-year-old, too, as he looks to work off some ring rust after six months out of action.

As well as wrestling in Odessa on Friday, Rollins will follow up his first match of 2016 with another just 24 hours later. This time a four-way against Reigns, Styles and Sheamus at Saturday's live event in Lubbock, Texas.

With just two-and-a-half weeks to go until he is set to main event Money in the Bank in front of around 20,000 fans, Rollins needs to get as many in-ring opportunities as he can before then if he is to put on the show the WWE Universe expects come June 19.

Taking part in both live events this weekend is the perfect way to get back in the swing of things before appearing in the ring on WWE TV.

Whether that happens before he meets Reigns for a shot at the World Heavyweight title in Las Vegas, Nevada remains to be seen.

Fingers crossed

One thing is for sure, however. Whether watching Rollins' first match since November 2015 live this weekend or not, the WWE Universe will have its collective fingers crossed in the hope that he comes through unscathed.

Despite his confident return on the mic over the past 10 days or so - and the countless rehab sessions he has taken part in since tearing the ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee last year - there will still be some nerves before the bell goes in Texas on Friday.
