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.
