4 to 6 months would put him right about on schedule to return around the Royal Rumble, I think. Not that I would guarantee it but there has been a trend of sorts over the past several rumbles in which a wrestler returning from a injury or just a long hiatus has had a big influence in the outcome (Cena in '08, Edge in '10, Jericho in '12). So my guess is that they might hold him off until then and maybe give him a big push as the rumble winner when he returns.
For my money Sheamus is the best brawler in the WWE. Brutal, physical matches, albeit with little technical wrestling, even though he keeps the Texas Cloverleaf in his back pocket.
He also had the misfortune of Wrestlemania 28 and getting tepid reactions, at best, after winning the belt, while Daniel Bryan has skyrocketed.
Hope he heals well and quickly, though. He has a great personality to boot.
And I kind of liked the 1-800-FELLA segments. They reminded me of the APA vignettes where Farooq and Bradshaw kind of ripped off Pulp Fiction. I think a payoff with someone actually dialing that, and Sheamus becoming a 'babyface for hire' would've been interesting; kind of like 911 in ECW.

I remember when Austin first came back early from his neck surgery. He just looked so feeble and could only use chair shots instead of stunners. I don't think Angle (or anyone) would be able to handle Tough Enough during his rehab.
