Just two weeks ago, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan were fired by The Authority for assisting John Cena in his quest to rid WWE of the evil powers that be at Survivor Series. When Edge returned to Monday Night Raw with Christian to close 2014, Seth Rollins took advantage and forced Cena's hand, leading to the reinstatement of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
At some point, Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan will get their jobs back, what with this being an angle for TV and what not. The question has always been when exactly that will be.
Would WWE have it in them to hold off on bringing them back until after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view scheduled for this Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, in Philadelphia?
The answer, if we're to believe a report from PW Insider, is no. All three wrestlers are apparently in Dallas, Texas for tonight's episode of Raw and while it hasn't been confirmed that they will appear on the show, it is expected that all three will be in the Royal Rumble match this weekend.
If that's the case, one would assume they'll run an angle reinstating them later on this evening.
