2 Raw superstars returned to the ring last night at the FCW tapings in Florida. Melina, who is coming off a heel injury suffered back in June of 2008, made her in-ring return in a tag match that saw her team with Tyler Reks to take on Alicia Fox and Jack Gabriel in a tag match. Melina wasn’t scheduled to return to the ring until January of 2009, however her rehab worked ahead of schedule. Also, suspended superstar Dolph Ziggler returned to the ring, losing a match to Johnny Curtis. Ziggler was suspended for 30 says due to a violation of WWE’s Wellness Policy.
In other FCW news, infrequently seen ECW star Armando Estrada worked a tag match along side Lawrence Knight and Tyson Tarver in a victory over Yamamoto, Kafu & Johnny Prime. Ricky Ortiz defeated Kizarny, who has yet to debut on Smackdown. It should be noted that this past week’s Smackdown did not contain vignettes promoting Kizarny’s debut, and he does not make an appearance on next week’s show either.
