The WWE has been cursed by an injury problem in the last few months, with several superstars suffering from issues that have kept them out for months at a time.

Thankfully, one of those stars that found himself out on the sidelines recently will be making a return to the squared circle.

According to a report from PW Insider, 'The Man That Gravity Forgot' Neville is going to be making his comeback sooner rather than later.

Per the report, Neville should be back in time for the WWE RAW/SmackDown brand split which is taking place next month.

"WWE star Neville is expected back from his broken ankle within the next month, PWInsider.com has learned," the article stated.

"The hope internally is he will return by the end of June, but he is expected back no later than mid-July."

The high-flying Englishman suffered the injury in the run up to WrestleMania, breaking his ankle as he attempted a baseball slide in a match against Chris Jericho.

It's a move that the Geordie will have done hundreds of times throughout his WWE, NXT and independent wrestling career and will never have gone wrong. The one time it has, however, Neville had to miss out on his first ever WrestleMania.

Unfortunately for Neville, gravity remembered him again and his ankle snapped. You can watch the match against Jericho here, which includes Y2J's fantastic post-match antics with referee Charles Robinson.

Naturally, because of the injury, Neville lost his spot in the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship at 'Mania 32. His place was taken by Zack Ryder, who came out victorious with the big white belt around his waist.

Who knows, if Neville had stayed healthy, would he have a WWE title to his name right now? Well, seeing as Ryder lost the IC Title on the Raw after 'Mania and faded back into obscurity, maybe it was a good thing that Neville didn't win it.

With the timeline for a return being set at a month, we could see Neville being a surprise draft pick during the Brand Split. If one of the future Raw or SmackDown general manager selects the acrobatic marvel and promises to turn him into a star, then the Geordie could be on to a winner.
