Backstage WWE news on why Dolph Ziggler was chosen to replace Kevin Owens in Saudi Arabia

As noted earlier this week, Dolph Ziggler returned on WWE SmackDown Live to set up a match with Kofi Kingston for Super ShowDown. It was originally supposed to be Owens vs. Kingston but Owens pulled out of the show and will not be flying to Saudi Arabia. Click here for more on why Owens (and others) pulled out of the show.

Ziggler has been saying that he’s wanted time away from WWE so he could freshen up his character and he did not plan on returning this week. But, WWE felt that there was nobody ready for the match with Kingston and they didn’t want another Raw wrestler in the spot.

The only top names available would have been Daniel Bryan and Elias. Bryan is not going and they are not looking at Elias as a title contender.

Since Ziggler was booked by WWE for an appearance in Australia, the decision was made to pull him from the appearance and send Carmella in his place.
