WWE is currently going through one of its best times in the business. However, the company has also suffered multiple losses in the form of numerous workers being injured in the past year. Superstars like Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens, Liv Morgan, Jimmy Uso, and many others have lost significant time due to their injuries. Another superstar who missed out on action was Johnny Gargano.

However, it looks like fans will not have to wait any longer. That is because Johnny Wrestling wrestled his first match in two months against The Nigerian Giant Omos at a recent live event. But to everyone’s surprise, Gargano could not get a victory in his first match back. Omos squashed the former NXT Champion in the untelevised event.

Kevin OwensOmos is currently on the roster without a proper direction. Therefore, fans are wondering what WWE has in store for the giant. On the other hand, it has been rumored for months that once Johnny Gargano is cleared, he will reunite with Tommaso Ciampa and bring back DIY from NXT to the main roster. The duo was expected to wrestle Kevin Owns and Sami Zayn at SummerSlam.

Since Kevin Owens suffered an injury last week and is expected to be out of action for some time, the match is no longer expected. Therefore, fans will have to wait and see if Johnny Wrestling and Omos are involved in SummerSlam in any way. There are chances that the two can be a part of the Battle Royal that will take place at SummerSlam.

As The Bloodline, Judgment Day, and Damage CTRL have either broken up or teased dissension among the members, a new team is silently being formed. For several weeks, Bobby Lashley has been meeting superstars behind the scenes on Raw and SmackDown. He teased that he might reform The Hurt Business with some changes to the team.

Until now, Lashley has approached The Street Profits and Carmelo Hayes in recent weeks. The meetings seem to have gone well, according to the reactions from the superstars. However, one more person who is expected to join Lashley in the renewed faction is his former rival, Omos. From the picture shared a few months ago, Omos was the only member who had not been teased yet.

Therefore, fans could expect Omos to be a member of the new Hurt Business. The group can run Raw or SmackDown, as all the men involved are extremely talented and have the potential to captivate the audience.
