As noted yesterday, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan were backstage at Raw last night but were not used on camera. They will be at the Smackdown taping tonight in Austin, Texas so that will likely be where they make their return after being “fired” a couple of weeks ago.
F4WOnline.com reports that Sheamus cut a promo last night that did not air on TV. He’s expected back soon.
I heard that he may be back as soon as tonight’s Smackdown tapings. If he’s not shown live in the arena then they’ll at least air the promo to hype his return. I don’t see how he wouldn’t be used in the Royal Rumble on Sunday. He’s expected to be back as a heel.
AJ Lee was also backstage at Raw last night. She’s back in action on Friday at the house show in Trenton although I suppose she could be used at the Smackdown taping as well since she’s been cleared to wrestle.
We will have Smackdown spoilers up later this evening.
