The WWE Window Is Closing On Dolph Ziggler


Just a few weeks ago Dolph Ziggler was ascending to the top of the WWE world. Wins over Randy Orton and John Cena have now been stifled by a WWE creative team that is blowing Ziggler’s momentum every week with no ideas and a lack of direction.

[adinserter block=”1″]Dolph Ziggler is a guy that most of us are cheering for who write blogs or do some kind of podcast on the Internet. Ziggler has developed a cult following thanks to his fast paced style and innovative take on WWE wrestling in 2013. Yet for some reason the WWE are unwilling to pull the trigger that would shoot Ziggler into a coveted top spot.

What happened is anyone’s guess. It would have appeared that the WWE had a plan for Ziggler just a few weeks ago. Ziggler went over John Cena and Randy Orton on pay per view and aligned himself with the hottest character in the WWE. The sky appeared to be the limit for the Money in the Bank holder but for some reason that mountain top seems further away than ever.

Cashing in (no pun intended) on a wrestler’s momentum is a tricky thing. That window of opportunity doesn’t stay open for very long. Fans either become bored or beaten down enough that they eventually throw their hands up in the air and move on once it becomes apparent that their favorite wrestler’s momentum isn’t going anywhere. I fear that is where the WWE Universe is with Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler looks like he has less direction than ever. Not only is he being served up as a weekly job guy on WWE television, his promo time has been cut to practically zero. He has taken a backseat to everyone from Antonio Cesaro to The Miz. Even if Ziggler was to cash in randomly and win the title, I don’t even think people would care at this point.

From a logic standpoint his misdirection makes even less sense. The fans at home (like me) are wondering why he just doesn’t cash in his briefcase and take the world heavyweight title slot at WrestleMania? The idea that he competed in the Royal Rumble for a title shot at WrestleMania even made less sense. A dastardly heel is one thing, but nobody has time for someone they perceive as just stupid.

[adinserter block=”2″]The time is now with Dolph Ziggler. All hope is not completely lost, but it is leaving the station quicker than you can say Big E. Langston. Those brilliant minds at WWE Creative may have creatively found a way to stop the rise of the most underappreciated wrestler on the WWE roster today.

  1. I don't think WWE knows what they are doing with Ziggler. Remember that ten minute World Title Reign he had when he won the World Title from Edge without even beating him , thanks to Vickie Guerrero's stupid little rule about Edge not using the spear? SMH. NOW, not only is Ziggler paired up with AJ, WWE has killed off AJ's heat as no one cares about her either. A little while back, AJ was the hottest thing since sliced bread.

    WWE has this terrible habit of killing off the momentum of people they were once behind (AJ). I love Ziggler, but I have nearly given up on him. When he comes out now, I know he is losing. This is the worst way to build up someone that you want being the World Champion.

  2. Two things. I like Dove Zigglah's in-ring talent but he's not one of my top 10 fav modern era wrestlers. Frankly, I just want to see him cash in at Wrestlemania, have whatever title they have planned for him and let's move on. Seriously, Zigglah's MITB reign has been worse than D-Bry's…and Zigglah has had wins over Randolph the Robot and Fruity Pebbles for Pete's sake!

  3. Its more and more likely WWE will never push him properly. From being jobbed out to Brodus Clay and Sheamus, to losing 95% of his big matches, to Big E getting a better push than Ziggler and AJ getting all the spotlight Zigglers supposed push has been a joke.
