Dolph ZigglerZiggler Not Medically Cleared to Return

According to F4WOnline.com, the advertisements listing Dolph Ziggler for WWE events this weekend and next week are actually outdated, and as of today Ziggler has yet to receive medical clearance to return to the ring. There's always a possibility Ziggler could return to cut a promo or be involved in a non-physical way, but it appears that a ring return is not yet possible. 

Does Foley Think HHH Buried Axel's Debut?

During a recent interview with Busted Open on Sirius 92, XM 208, Mick Foley had the following to say on whether or not HHH buried Curtis Axel's Raw debut:

"This is not a knock on Triple H, but Triple H talked about retiring me after I already came back three times. At that point it was a big deal in 2000 for Triple H to talk about retiring me. If Triple H has had his last match, which is a good possibility, then I see Paul Heyman bragging for the next three years that Curtis Axel retired Triple H. Which is much bigger than beating him and much more meaningful or whether or not he was slapped or made to look weak momentarily.

For people who ask me if I think this guy has a chance. Not only is he talented and waited his turn and lived through the Michael McGillicutty indignity. I asked him about that and obviously he didn't want to say anything bad about the company, but he said ,'It hurt a little, it stung when you get your name and it's Michael McGillicutty. Short term you can say, 'well why didn't he beat Triple H?' But like I said, me being on the outside looking in, depending how this thing plays out, never underestimate the verbal skills of Paul Heyman or the skills of Michael McGillicutty. As a fan it has me hooked. Even if you're not saying Curtis Axel right now, I believe that Paul is the master. I call him the master gardener. He knows how much water and sunshine to give his project and then they have to grow on their own."
