Many fans have forgotten that Lars Sullivan is still a part of the WWE roster. The company has listed him as a SmackDown Superstar on their website. A few months ago, the rumor mill suggested that Sullivan should be ready to make his comeback to the ring soon.
Given his dominant run before his injury, 'The Freak' can straightaway enter the Universal Championship picture. The WWE Universe could witness a once in a lifetime rivalry between Braun Strowman and Lars Sullivan also. However, the reigning Universal Champion is currently busy with The Miz and John Morrison, while Bray Wyatt and Otis have their eyes on his title.
Thus, it would not be a great call to book Sullivan to chase the Universal title straight after returning. Instead, he could feud with Daniel Bryan for the Intercontinental Championship. The giant athlete may make his return in the next few weeks, which is why WWE can book an angle featuring him and Daniel Bryan.
The former WWE Champion can put Sullivan over, and even lose his title to him later.
