If shoe does in fact make his return in mid-March, that would indicate that he will be back in time for WrestleMania 34, being that the show takes place on April 8th. It is not known currently was exactly WWE has planned for Joe upon his return. Originally Joe was slated to work a program with John Cena prior to his injury, but those plans could have been scrapped all together by now.
