Hugh Jackman Comments on Raw Return

Actor Hugh Jackman, who will be guest starring on Raw next week, posted the following on Twitter:

Jackman commenting on his Raw return sparked a Twitter feud between Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow, and WWE.com commented on the feud by posting the following:

"Hugh Jackman is making his return to Monday Night Raw, and two longtime rivals have already got their claws out over the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" star's impending arrival.

Moments after Jackman tweeted his intentions to return to Raw, Dolph Ziggler – who was memorably socked in the face by the Oscar-nominated actor in 2011 – took the opportunity to extend the olive branch. The Showoff's on-and-off sparring partner Damien Sandow had a few snide remarks of his own in store, leading to a war of words between the two former Money in the Bank contract holders. Tune in next Monday at 8/7 CT on USA Network to see how the situation resolves itself!"
