Triple H is bringing back more released stars to WWE

Another week under the Triple H WWE regime and another possible return from a released star for this week’s SmackDown.

We’re mere weeks into Triple H being head of creative in WWE and we’ve already seen the returns of Dakota Kai and IYO SKY at SummerSlam, welcomed additions into WWE’s main roster women’s division.

As for Karrion Kross, the former NXT Champion made his comeback on last week’s episode of SmackDown, attacking Drew McIntyre and setting his sights on Roman Reigns, before Dexter Lumis showed up in the crowd during this past Monday’s episode of Raw. 

The returns just keep on coming, as now it’s being reported by PWInsider that former Hit Row members ‘Top Dolla’ AJ Francis and Ashante thee Adonis are expected to be at tonight’s SmackDown show. 

The initial reports stating that Top Dolla was expected at the taping in Raleigh, North Carolina were suspected to be to with WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures show on A&E in the states. Dolla, was the host of the first season and it hadn’t been confirmed if he was at SmackDown to appear on TV or for something related to the second series of the show. 

However, with the news that Adonis is also slated to be in Raleigh, it seems to suggest that Triple H is bringing the two back together as a tag team in WWE. 

Hit Row were a popular stable under Triple H’s NXT and moved to the main roster during last year’s WWE draft in October. However, two weeks later Dolla, Adonis along with B-Fab and Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott were released by the company. 

The faction members have appeared for various independent promotions together since they departed WWE, while Scott is now with AEW under the name Swerve Strickland and is currently one half of the AEW Tag Team Champions alongside another former WWE Superstar Keith Lee. 

There has been no indication that WWE will be bringing back B-Fab as part of any incarnation of Hit Row, but given the speed at which we are seeing these stars return to the company, it’s entirely possible she could be added to the roster at some point in the future. 

For more news on possible additions coming to the WWE roster as Triple H continues to look to make his mark following the shock retirement of Vince McMahon, make sure you stay tuned to GiveMeSport over the coming days and weeks.
