WWE Superstar Cesaro, who was injured last year has been announced for an in-ring return after going down with shoulder injury -which was expected to keep him out for up to six months.

The “Swiss Superman” tore his left rotator cuff in November, which was an injury he had been battling two months prior. His injury came in the midsts of an injury epidemic for the company, which by and large is still on-going.

It would seem recovery has gone well given he is not taking the full amount of recovery time his surgery requires.

The official WWE Netherlands Twitter  account revealed Cesaro is returning to action on the WrestleMania Revenge tour in Europe next month. His in-ring return takes place on April 15th in Amsterdam at the Ziggo Dome.

TNA star Jeff Hardy is the latest wrestler to pledge to donate his brain to the CTE Center at Boston University and the Concussion Legacy Foundation after he passes away.

In an interview with Ring Rust Radio, Hardy said Nash’s decision to donate his brain influenced him.

“My wife read where Kevin Nash announced that and I said, “Oh my God I have to do that.” I for sure will do whatever it takes and I would love to be a part of that. It’s a huge serious issue in wrestling,” Hardy said. “I’ve rung my bells so many times especially back in the day when chair shots to the head were legal. My goodness, I took so many of those. Luckily, I’m only aware of about two or three concussions that I have had but there’s really no way of telling how many overall. When Nash announced he was doing that I was on board and I didn’t know that RVD did as well. That really inspired me to do the same thing.”

Rob Van Dam, Kevin Nash and Mick Foley have also all agreed to donate their brains.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
