WWE names the 20 greatest returns in history

It's not how you leave, it's how you come back.

WWE.com is back with another countdown and, true to form, we can't help but jump all over it. This one is more interesting than most: The "20 greatest squared circle returns" in history. There's plenty of awesome material to work with, so what did the editors over there come up with?

Let's take a look. As always, be sure to hit up WWE.com to check out detailed explanation, as well as video, by clicking here.

20. Goldberg, Nitro (May 29, 2000)
19. Raven, ECW on TNN (Aug. 26, 1999)
18. Cactus Jack, Royal Rumble 2000
17. Lex Luger, Nitro (Sept. 4, 1995)
16. Chris Jericho, Raw (Sept. 24, 2007)

I'm not sure I can argue too much with any of this but it tickles me pink that Batista, who returned after four years away earlier this year, was completely left off the list.
