– As seen on WWE TV, WWE has brought back Kenny and Mikey of The Spirit Squad to feud with Dolph Ziggler, who was also in the group in the mid-2000s.
Kenny and Mikey appeared on SmackDown Live two weeks ago for a Miz TV segment then got involved in The Miz’s Intercontinental Title match with Dolph Ziggler at this past Sunday’s No Mercy pay-per-view event. They also worked a match against Ziggler on this past Tuesday’s edition of SmackDown Live, which Ziggler won.
Pwinsider.com reported that fans can expect to see Kenny and Mikey on SmackDown Live in the coming weeks. There’s still no word on if they have signed full-time deals with the company.
