Former NXT Star Set For Big Return?

(Triple H, WWE COO)

Chris Hero is heading back to WWE, confirmed by a company source according to Dave Meltzer.

Meltzer didn’t mention whether he was heading to NXT or the main roster.

On the Saturday night edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer answered a reader question about Hero’s lack of bookings for 2017 to which Meltzer responded that he had some suspicions, adding that he heard about Evolve Wrestling perhaps having some plans for him in the future.

The soon-to-be 37-year-old (born Chris Spradlin) has been in WWE developmental before as Kassius Ohno, spending 2012-13 in Florida Championship Wrestling which became NXT. He was released in November 2013.

Hero has been active on the indies ever since, putting on great matches worldwide against a multitude of opponents.

This would be the latest big indy name WWE has signed recently, a group that included Roderick Strong, Tommy End, Big Damo and others.

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.
