Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler set for Raw in Tampa

When the Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler singles match at SummerSlam in Brooklyn just one week ago ended by way of double count out, you knew WWE would book a return match. Now, the company website has announced that said return match will take place on tomorrow night's episode of Monday Night Raw in Tampa, Florida:

During The Biggest Party of the Summer, The Showoff's battle with The Bulgarian Brute devolved into absolute chaos once brawling beauties Lana and Summer Rae got involved in the melee. Will Ziggler, with The Ravishing Russian in his corner, earn a decisive victory over the imposing Rusev as Lana's devious doppelgänger looks on?

While it's possible this will serve as the blow off match for this feud, it's also possible this is simply another way to set up a mixed tag team match at Night of Champions on Sept. 20 in Houston.

Meanwhile, WWE is going all out to build anticipation for Raw tomorrow night, having already announced Sting kicking off the show and a Divas Beat-the-Clock Challenge to crown a number one contender to Nikki Bella's title.
