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.

For those of you that have not been attending live events lately, WWE is routinely running the angle where the Intercontinental Championship keeps getting stolen by the performers who will compete for the belt in a ladder match at Wrestlemania. Cody Rhodes worked a match against Goldust in Erie on Saturday. While that was going on, Dolph Ziggler ran out from the backstage area and stole the title. Story will continue on Monday Night Raw.
