Lars Sullivan hasn’t been wrestling on TV or at live events for the past month, and some fans have been very confused as to his whereabouts. There was no official report of why which is odd because he had been pushed quite heavily as of late. But we now know that it was due to a recurring knee injury, but that’s all good now, and the gargantuan is back and looking as good as ever.
At last nights NXT live event, Sullivan decimated Babatunde Aiyegbusi, and finished it off with his devastating Freak Accident finishing move in just 3 minutes. He also featured later in the night where he destroyed Marcel Barthel. From all reports, Sullivan looked great, and it’s very likely he’ll be back to his dominant best on the WWE network once the next set of tapings roll around.
This timing couldn’t have been worse for Sullivan, as he just had his best matches yet against Kassius Ohno and Roderick Strong. But it’s just a small injury, and won’t hurt him, as management are looking to push him BIG upon his return to TV. Reports from The Wrestling Observer state that Sullivan was scheduled to face Andrade “Cien” Almas at NXT Takeover: New Orleans over WrestleMania weekend, but that spot has now been filled with Aleister Black.
So there you have it guys, Lars Sullivan is finally back from his unexplained absence, and although it’s going to be a while until we see him on TV due to the length of time NXT recorded for at the latest taping, it seems that he’ll step back in right where he left off. So what do you think? Does Sullivan have the talent to be a top guy in NXT? Should they focus more on another superstar? Should he be given a run at the top or hot-shotted to the main roster?
