Dolph ZigglerAlthough Dolph Ziggler was expected to return to action this weekend during a WWE Live event tour, facing Alberto del Rio, he was replaced by Big E Langston. The World Champion reportedly was ringside for the match, but did not get physical in any way. Ziggler cut a promo for the live crowd before the bout saying that he had yet to receive medical clearance from his doctors, which is why he was being replaced.

WWE has been advertising Ziggler for Monday Night Raw tonight, including his in-ring television return. We will have more on his condition when it becomes available, but last night could simply have been WWE's way of giving Ziggler more time to rest before his return on Raw.
