WWE SummerSlam is just around the corner, and there’s a lot of buzz surrounding WWE currently. Triple H has taken over the creative reigns from Vince McMahon for the creative role. He has also assumed the role of Head of Talent Relations from John Laurinaitis. Thus understandably, there are a lot of expectations from him.
In the past two years, the number of wrestlers WWE employed has decreased by a lot. Some chose not to re-sign, while some were fired during the pandemic. Many of these wrestlers were Triple H’s pet projects or personal favorites. So, it’s quite possible that Triple H uses his executive powers to bring back some of his old disciples.
In this article, we will take a look at 3 released superstars who could make a shocking return at WWE SummerSlam 2022.
1. Will Bray Wyatt return at WWE SummerSlam?
Patience. It’s almost time

Bray Wyatt is one of the most creative talents in the business. His early work as the Fiend was phenomenal, but was surprisingly let go. There were reports that he was unhappy with the office due to creative differences quite often. Since being released, he has been extremely secretive about his next move on social media.
Triple H is famous for giving his talents creative freedom in NXT, something which was sorely missing on the main roster. With him in charge, we could see Bray Wyatt return to the fold. Bray returning at SummerSlam would be one of the biggest stories in wrestling and create an instant buzz in the industry.
2. Karrion Kross
The treatment of Karrion Kross on the main roster was extremely puzzling. After being presented as a monster in NXT, Kross was stripped of everything that made him feel like a big deal. His incredible entrance was ruined, WWE didn’t call-up his wife Scarlett Bordeaux and made him wrestle in a horrendous outfit. Kross also lost his very first match on the main-roster to Jeff Hardy, whose stock had fallen by then.
Since being released, Kross has made limited appearances, and seems content doing acting gigs alongside wrestling. He hasn’t signed long term deals with any promotion till now. Anyone who watched NXT during Kross’ tenure on the brand knows how high Triple H was on him. With Huner back in charge, there’s a great chance that Kross and his wife return to make things right.
#3 Will Sasha Banks return at WWE SummerSlam?

Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out hours before Monday Night RAW after having a dispute about how the Women’s Tag Team Titles were being treated. It was then confirmed by multiple people recently that Sasha Banks was ‘as good as gone’ from the WWE. If this is true, then it will be a big blow to the WWE as Sasha Banks is one of the best women’s wrestlers of all time.
However, all hope may not be lost, as Triple H is back in charge. He and the ‘Four Horsewomen’ share a deep bond, and if there’s anyone who can bring Sasha back, it’s Triple H. The NXT Women’s Tag Team championship is treated with respect and given decent airtime each week. Promising and delivering the same to Sasha Banks and Naomi could bring them back into the fold.
Any of these above returns would instantly create an unforgettable moment in WWE history. It will be interesting to see what transpires at the ‘Biggest Party of the Summer’.
