As noted, Chris Hero is reportedly headed back to WWE. He was in NXT from 2012 and 2013 as Kassius Ohno before being released in November 2013. Although there’s no timeframe for when he will return to the company, it will be sometime early next year. He will have to complete his medical tests, and that usually takes a few months.
On Monday morning, Hero took to Twitter to respond to the reports that he’s returning to the company. He posted the following cryptic message:
I can't help but to be disappointed by irresponsible journalism.
