Re: Where were Ziggler and Sandow?
They're Smackdown stars and will be featured there. Ziggler is poised to take the WHC (my guess would be at WM), and Sandow is going to get a singles push again. He's probably going to be spotlighted with a solid promo and match on Smackdown.
Don't worry, they're not being written off. WWE just ran a lot of high profile stuff on Raw today. Jericho, Henry, Swagger's return, Ryback vs Cesaro, Cena, Sheamus vs Kane, etc.
Rhodes did get a match, but he lost it. I think Sandow is going to win his. If Sandow got a spot on Raw, he probably would've just been jobbing to one of the more marketable guys. You shouldn't be too upset he didn't appear. It would've just been a loss anyway.
