WWE News: Samir Singh provides an update on his in-ring comeback
What’s the story?
SmackDown Live Superstar Samir Singh has taken to social media to provide an update on his in-ring comeback status.
Apparently, Samir, who suffered a torn ACL, is still undergoing rehab for the injury. Samir also put forth a motivational message for the fans.
In case you didn’t know…
Samir Singh (real name—Harv Sihra) & Sunil Singh (Gurv Sihra) have competed in the sport of professional wrestling since 2005.
The Singh Brothers were booked in a faction with Jinder Mahal last year, serving as valuable allies in The Modern day Maharajah’s pursuit of success in the WWE.
The heart of the matter
Jinder Mahal, Samir & Sunil Singh were involved in a brawl with Bobby Roode on the January 16th edition of SmackDown Live—the segment during which Samir tore his ACL.
Ever since hurting his ACL earlier this year, Samir has been out of action. He underwent surgery in the days that ensued and has been going through rehabilitation routines ever since.
Addressing his in-ring return to WWE, Samir posted a video of him donning a Bret Hart T-Shirt and engaging in therapeutic training, with the following caption—
“Rocky music blasting in the background, reminding me: Gonna’ fly now! #KeepMovingForward”
Samir Singh is expected to miss WrestleMania 34—with his return coming no sooner than June or July of this year.
Meanwhile, his brother Sunil Singh continues to accompany Jinder Mahal to the latter’s matches. Currently, The Maharajah is in a program to capture the WWE United States Championship.
Honestly speaking, The Singh Brothers are vastly underrated, and perhaps criminally underappreciated for the work that they’ve put in, especially on the independent professional wrestling circuit.
In fact, the sheer expertise with which they sold getting suplexed by Randy Orton—all through Mahal’s feud with “The Viper” last year—goes to show how hard-working and talented these performers are.
Sportskeeda wishes Samir Singh a safe & speedy recovery.
