Chris Hero, who was signed by WWE and worked under the name Kassius Ohno from 2012-2013 as part of FCW and later NXT, is reportedly heading back to the company.
According to multiple wrestling media reports on Sunday, Hero is expected to make a return to WWE in 2017. He was cut by WWE in 2013 and remained active on the independent wrestling scene ever since his release from the company.
A report by The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online stated that Hero (Chris Spradlin) would likely be undergoing medical testing in preparation for an offer from WWE to return. Hero had not been taking a lot of bookings in 2017 leading to speculation. He was not denying the story about a return to WWE, but not addressing it per PWInsider.com.
