Dolph Ziggler has been a dependable veteran for WWE and is used when needed by the company, as he’s a good talent both in the ring and on the microphone.
On Monday Night Raw this week, Ziggler returned to WWE television. It happened when he confronted Austin Theory, who was in the middle of defending his United States Championship against Mustafa Ali on the show.
After the referee called for the bell and awarded Theory the DQ victory, which meant he retained his title, Ziggler argued with Ali, who was upset that Ziggler costed him the match. Theory got back into the ring and laid out both stars.
According to a report by Fightful Select, Ziggler’s return was not listed internally on any call sheets, production notes, or lineup for the show to keep it a surprise for fans and not let it leak before the show.
With Ziggler returning and reigniting his feud with Theory, it looks like Ziggler may be the next star to challenge Theory for the WWE United States Championship to get revenge for losing to Theory several weeks ago.
