The WWE Universe were witness to the television return of "The Glorious One" on this week's episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana.

Robert Roode made his return to WWE TV last night on WWE Friday Night SmackDown, appearing at the end of the show and joining King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler as they laid out Roman Reigns and The Usos.

Roode had last been seen in November as he was subsequently suspended on December 10th for 30 days for violating WWE's Wellness Policy.

That would have meant that his suspension officially ended on January 9th, and WWE obviously wasted no time in bringing him back to TV.

We will keep you posted as updates continue to surface regarding the future status of Robert Roode.
