Michael Tarver resurfaced on Friday’s SmackDown! as he appeared in a backstage segment alongside Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero, standing over an unconscious Teddy Long. The former Nexus member was not acknowledged over commentary.

On the October 4th episode of RAW, Tarver was attacked by John Cena, with Wade Barrett later stating that he would have thrown Tarver out of The Nexus anyway. This storyline was put in place due to Tarver sustaining a groin injury.

Tarver announced the following on his Twitter? “Oh yeah IM BAAAAAAAAACK and im about to go H.A.M. stay tuned”
