Dolph Ziggler Cashes In, Wins WWE WHC On RAW

The Monday Night RAW after WWE WrestleMania 29 will go down as arguably the most exciting ever. The show was highlighted by Dolph Ziggler finally cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase and winning his second WWE world heavyweight championship.

The atmosphere at RAW was like another universe compared to WrestleMania. The crowd was hot and vocal throughout the night and created one of the most entertaining RAW shows in years. The only other RAW I could compare it to was last year’s the day after Mania 28 in Miami. It was as good as it gets.

Ziggler finally cashed in his MITB briefcase against champion Alberto Del Rio after an injured Del Rio disposed of Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter. The crowd went nuts for this, almost forcing Dolph to turn babyface. If you read the SmackDown tapings they are already teasing a showdown with Ziggler and Swagger. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it.

The one reminder I had watching RAW Monday is how awesome some of the old WrestleMania atmospheres were that were held in arenas. I doubt WrestleMania will ever go back to an arena. Imagine how hot WrestleMania 29 would have been if it was held indoors? The tradeoff for the big show is losing that kind of rabid fan interaction throughout the night.

Now that Ziggler has the belt I just hope they give him a lengthy title reign. You never know with the WWE, especially on the SmackDown side. Ziggler has been putting everyone over for months. He needs a strong run to solidify him as a top guy going forward. If he remains a heel, feuds with Del Rio, Randy Orton, Sheamus, and Chris Jericho should easily do that.

Check out the video here of what may go down as one of the most exciting title changes in the history of the WWE world heavyweight champion.
