In an announcement that has been forecast for months now, WWE's new emerging talent Sol Ruca is set to return to TV soon, after almost 11 months spent on the injured reserve because of a terrible knee injury that happened during April of last year.

Ruca wrestled in her last televised match when she took on former NXT Women's Champion Tiffany Stratton and has been much missed since. Her spot in the women's division was quite a sore one, with her injury leaving her benched from in-ring action.

However, this long wait for both signals to be thrown is almost over. Ruca recently showed that she was ready to return when she performed at an NXT Live Event in Crystal River, FL. She teamed with Brinley Reece and the two came up short in their match against Jacy Jayne & Thea Hail, but the point was made by Ruca that she was back.

Cryptic Return Teaser

Made even more apparent was a cryptic video posted last night during the latest NXT episode, which shows a peaceful beach scene with the words "see you soon" inscribed in the sand. This type of red herring has supporters lightly speculating on Ruca's imminent reentry during next month's NXT Roadblock on March 5.

Very much surfing that vibe, this veiled spoiler has readied those who await Ruca's return. Sol Ruca first dipped her toe in the WWE waters in 2022 after working with the organization, bringing with her a sheer determination and athletic ability honed through acrobatics and an acumen for tumbling into the professional wrestling scene, despite having no wrestling experience.

Coming from the Filipino Islands, it didn't take very long until Sol Ruca's charm and displays of amazement came under scrutiny by the top management of WWE, just like the Chief Content Officer Triple H, who has been making a living from talent hunting.

WWE insiders including respected journalist Dave Meltzer expect Ruca's new promising job inside the company. And with WWE fans seeing the return of Shawn Spears in the latest episode of NXT, they are all starting to feel the same kind of electrifying excitement for Sol Ruca's return back into the mainstream scene once more.

As NXT Roadblock is only a few days from happening, all wrestling communities await the coming out of this dynamo performer about to make hellacious noise once again in the sport of professional wrestling.
