Fandango Return Update

We could see Fandango back on WWE TV sooner than later as a report by says he was spotted in Orlando this morning. It’s not a sure sign that he’ll appear on air, but he’s either at the WWE Performance Center, scheduled for NXT, or both.

Fandango has been sidelined since July 2018 and has remained inactive due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Following surgery, Fandango resumed training towards his in-ring comeback and was featured in a video update on the WWE PC YouTube channel. His Breezango partner, Tyler Breeze, also started making recent appearances for the NXT brand at live events, in addition to challenging Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American Championship at NXT TakeOver: XXV.
