– JBL and Michael Cole will be hosting a live edition of their radio show next Saturday at 7pm at the 50 Restaurant and Bar in Chicago. They will will be giving away free tickets to WWE Payback, which takes place in the city the following evening.
– World Heavyweight champion Dolph Ziggler, who has been cleared to wrestle again after several weeks off due to a recent concussion, returned to the road this past weekend for WWE’s Live Event from Johnson City, Tennessee.
Ziggler was originally scheduled to face Alberto Del Rio in the main event, but did not wrestle. He came out, cut a promo saying he wasn’t cleared to wrestle, announced that Big E Langston would be taking his place. Ziggler was ringside, but got ejected along with AJ Lee after interfering. The finish came when Del Rio locked in his cross arm breaker and got Langston to tap out.
