Updates on returns for Seth Rollins, Randy Orton

WWE has a lot of fresh faces running around on the main roster right now. But they're also about to get an infusion of familiar ones, as the crop of stars injured in 2015 begin to make their way back to Raw and SmackDown.

Cesaro has already returned and is in the middle of the Intercontinental title scene. John Cena announced recently he'll be on Monday nights again starting May 30.

The two biggest names (on the men's side... C'MON NIKKI) are former WWE champs Seth Rollins and Randy Orton.

This week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required but recommended) offers some information on both wrestler's timetable.

Rollins is the closer of the two, and the hold-up on his comeback isn't soley related to his health, but also his schedule. While is still rehabilitating his knee, Seth is currently filming the WWE Studios picture The Temple in New Orleans. That should wrap soon, and he's expected on television "relatively soon".

News on Orton isn't as concrete, nor are we expected to see him in the short-term. The Viper's schedule is going slower than expected, but he is recovering. The Observer says he could start training for the ring in mid-June. A return to action would come after, and be dependent on how that training goes.

Excited to have them back?
