Dolph Ziggler and Kane have both been advertised to appear on Raw this week according to WWE.com.
The Showoff and the Devil’s Favorite Demon have both been out of action recently to record a movie called ‘6:42’, but they will both return to Monday Night Raw on August 17. However, they haven’t been advertised for SmackDown tapings on August 18.
Both superstars were written off TV for the movie in different ways. Ziggler was written off after being attacked and injured by Rusev on Raw on July 6. Kane was written off after being attacked and injured by Brock Lesnar on Raw on July 13. They’re both expected to insert themselves back into feuds with those superstars in some way or another.

Showoff To The Rescue
Whilst Ziggler has been off TV, Rusev and his new partner Summer Rae have been bullying Lana and making a mockery of her.
The Showoff is expected to come back on Raw and challenge the Bulgarian Brute to a match at SummerSlam for what he has done to Lana whilst he has been away. This should be the last match confirmed on the SummerSlam card to make sure it lasts the advertised four hours.
Kane on the other hand is a bit different. Since he has been away, The Undertaker has returned and started a feud with Lesnar after costing him the match at Battleground. Kane is expected to get involved in the match between The Beast and The Phenom in some sort of way because Lesnar was the one that injured him.
He could try and attack Lesnar on Raw, and fail miserably, making Brock look strong going into the pay-per-view. He could give a warning of his involvement in the main event at SummerSlam, where he would then interfere and help his former Brothers of Destruction teammate win. It is unclear what his involvement will be, but he is expected to have an influence.
