As seen during this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Riddick Moss made his return to television after he helped Happy Corbin take out Kevin Owens. Moss has been out of action for nearly a year due to an ACL injury.
According to a report from Fightful, Moss continued to wrestle for a while following his injury. One WWE official said they were “shocked and impressed” due to how severe the injury was.
Moss also worked a dark match in Knoxville, TN last week and was already moved to SmackDown by then. Prior to his injury, he was a member of the RAW roster. While he never appeared in last year’s WWE Draft and there’s another draft next week, WWE officials felt like there was “no harm” in starting his team with Corbin.
Also, Paul Heyman was a big fan of Moss when he was in charge of RAW.
