A WWE star who hasn’t been on the road since September is backstage in Birmingham, Alabama, which happens to be the city hosting tonight’s Friday Night SmackDown.
PWInsider is reporting that Elias is backstage, which means he could be ready to return to action. It is not confirmed that he will be appearing on the show tonight. He could be backstage to get checked out by doctors in hopes to get cleared from the ankle injury he suffered in September.
