WWE STAR SLATED TO RETURN TO RING THIS WEEKEND, GOLDBERG-ZIGGLER, DREW MCINTYRE AND MORE

No Drew McIntyre backstage at Raw, so it appears he has still not been cleared to return.  At this point, it makes the most sense from a dramatic standpoint to bring him back around the Draft.

We are seeking live notes and results from tonight's Raw taping.

The expectation of those we've spoken to backstage is that the Bill Goldberg-Dolph Ziggler deal in Las Vegas is an angle to build to a Goldberg appearance, obviously.  FOX makes a lot of sense, but WWE also has to give NBC Universal something.  Perhaps Goldberg will be part of the Raw "season premiere."

Sin Cara is slated to return to action at the live events this weekend, PWInsider.com has confirmed. These would be his first matches for the company since competing in a 50 Man Battle Royal at the WWE Super Showdown in June.

WWE star Kane aka Knox County, TN Mayor Glenn Jacobs will be signing preview copies of his new book Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Liberty at 3 PM on Friday 10/4 at the New York Comic Con at the Hachette Books booth #2218.   The book is slated for an official 11/26 release   Promotional material for the book notes:

"In an era where political outsiders are successfully challenging the establishment, WWE superstar Glenn "Kane" Jacobs won the election to become mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.  Even in his heyday in wrestling, Jacobs was inspired to pursue politics by popular libertarian figures such as former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, Republican Senator Rand Paul, Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano and others, and that led him to fulfill his own political ambitions.  Before becoming Mayor Kane, Glenn "Kane" Jacobs was one of WWE's top Superstars for over two decades and traveled the globe with the likes of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, John Cena, Ric Flair, and many others. He dominated the WWE with The Undertaker as the "Brothers of Destruction." Kane reinvented himself with the help of Daniel Bryan forming "Team Hell No." He set "Good ol' JR," Jim Ross on fire.  The wrestler-turned-politician hasn't hung up his wrestling boots yet. Politics is a contact sport and Jacobs is using his wrestling skills in that arena. Jacobs supports President Trump and his agenda, and is implementing conservative policies in Tennessee."

Lacey Evans commented to CTV that her interaction in Canada over the weekend after getting a traffic ticket was indeed in character and was surprised some thought it wasn't at this link.

Mission Local in San Francisco featured a piece on The Miz going out of his way for fans waiting to see him during his media tour today at this link.  Miz is a hell of an ambassador for WWE.

WWE NXT have live events this Thursday 9/26 in Des Moines, Iowa and St. Petersburg, Florida.

The New Day are making a signing appearance this Sunday 9/29 at iPlay America in Freehold, NJ.
