There are conflicting reports floating around in regards to the return of Dolph Ziggler. Some say that he is supposed to be on Monday Night Raw this week, a rumor which was strengthened by the fact that he made a surprise appearance at a live event in Vancouver over the weekend. Others say that he is not done filming his movie for WWE. This could be a smokescreen sent out by management.

Earlier this month, when Dolph Ziggler was given time away from WWE, the expectations was that he would return right before the Summerslam pay per view. However, it appears now that management might have him return as soon as tonight, in order to set up a match for the former world heavyweight champion. He could be on Monday Night Raw this week.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE set forth the story line where Lana was dumped by Rusev, only to fall into the arms of Dolph Ziggler. The two shared a kiss in the middle of the ring that generated a really good reaction from the audience. The reason for adding an interesting story is because the creative department wanted to protect the Russian sympathizer because it will feel like a bit of a drop to go from feuding with John Cena to feuding with anyone else.

To help further sell Sheamus as a heel, WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler is unable to compete on Smackdown this week. He is not actually injured. It will be interesting to see just how far the front office takes the story. There are no live events planned for this upcoming weekend, as the performers are being given a little bit of rest before taking off for a tour of Europe. Ziggler is expected to be on Monday Night Raw this week.
