Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan make their return to television at this week's WWE SmackDown tapings.
Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan all feature at this week's WWE SmackDown tapings after John Cena salvaged their jobs on RAW earlier this week.
The trio had been sacked by The Authority, but after they made an appearance at the event, which will air on Sky Sports on Thursday night, they were given the opportunity to earn a spot in Sunday's Royal Rumble.
Ziggler overcame Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett in a non-title contest, while Ryback scored a victory over Rusev by count-out.
However, Rowan missed out after suffering defeat to former tag-team partner Luke Harper after making a mistake off the top rope.
The main event saw Daniel Bryan put his Royal Rumble spot on the line against Kane, but the former WWE World Heavyweight champion came through in a no-disqualification match.
