WWE to Re-Package Dolph Ziggler's Character?

WWE to Re-Package Dolph Ziggler’s Character?

We noted earlier that the reason Dolph Ziggler has been off WWE programming lately is because the company doesn’t really have anything for him. This is the reason why other Superstars aren’t being used as well.

In an update, Bryan Alvarez mentioned on the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Live that Ziggler will likely be re-packaged when he is brought back to WWE television. There is currently no word on what the re-package could involve but we will keep you updated.

    Dolph is like if Shawn Michaels and Mr. Perfect had a baby. How do you not get that over?

    • Shawn Puff

      Because Dolph just sucks. He’s like if HBK and Perfect had a kid and that kid sucked at life.

      • Omar

        I was going to say he was like a combined clone of the two that was a failed experiment, but I like yours better.

      • The Z-man ✔Verified

        And you can’t teach that

      • Joshua Bosley

        I thought I was the only guy on the internet that thinks Dolph is a snoozefest!!!!

        • Roger Bessette

          Yeah whatever, all the people complaining about Dolph are the same ones that were on his bandwagon 5 years ago. WWE fans are so fucking fickle its disgusting

          • Joshua Bosley

            lmao, I don’t know about anybody else, but I’ve always thought Ziggler was boring AF.

    • Khalid Mobley

      Truly ziggler use sweet chin music kick by Shawn Michaels.

  • Marvin H Alston

    Dolph never had his own identity
    When he left the varsity club he reminded me of Billy Gunn
    Now he reminds me of HBK and Mr. Perfect

    • ScottyPNR

      What the fuck is the varsity club? Do you mean spirit squad?

      • Marvin H Alston

        Damn spirit yeah…… thanks

  • ScottyPNR

    They should’ve kept him as the IC champion. At least he gave the title meaning again.

    • daleh33

      He did a lot more with it than Mr. Maryse. The problem is Dolph isn’t a guy who kept his mouth shut, he doesn’t follow Vince, Steph’s and Hunter’s way of only say what we tell you to say on social media and in interviews. I think that’s why they stopped pushing him. He has spoken out in the past about some guys being held back because of other “stars”. He really doesn’t like Cena which is another reason why he doesn’t get any push. He told a story once about Cena having Zak’s new merch at the time, held up because Zak used a “Cena catch phrase” in an interview and poor Johnny got ass hurt. Zak later confirmed the story and I’m sure Johnny wasn’t happy. I don’t remember any program since Dolph leaving “the varsity club” I mean Spirit Squad that he and Cena worked together, in fact not even during his time with them do I remember but I could be wrong. 2 guys that have been with the company for so many years, never working together seems a bit odd.

      • Possible

        There was something with the whole Vickie/dolph/cena/aj thing. Think cena might have even faced him for his mitb case at one point. Either way tho yah, it certainly wasn’t as much working together as some

        • daleh33

          I think I remember something about that mess now. Wonder just how many matches against Dolph that Johnny killed not wanting him to get the same spotlight.

          • Possible

            A lot would be my guess

  • X@nthu$ G0ldm@n

    doesn’t matter what you say he is one of the best wrestlers in WWE and that isn’t favoritism

  • Bossman27

    I wish him good luck with what it is

  • Dashing Lana

    The title should be: Re-Re-Re-Re-Re-Re-Re Package

  • Joseph Lawson

    Hopefully repackaging means his hair no longer looks like ramen noodles

  • Darrin Dalton

    It’s no one’s fault but Vince’s that Ziggler is getting nowhere. It’s Just another case of wasting good talent. He was doing just fine last time he was world champion, ppl are only tired of Dolph because they know he’s going to continue being wasted. It’s a sad situation, get these guys more involved it’s that simple of a solution instead of being too lazy to write these guys some storylines.

    • Possible

      What really hurt him was that concussion bull against el drinko. If that hadn’t happened, him and aj would have been the new edge and lita and there’s no telling how far it would have carried. That in my opinion was the defining moment

      • Darrin Dalton

        Yeah that was a great run with AJ, but honestly Ziggler was always over no matter what he was doing. WWE has wasted that factor about him big time. Them saying “We don’t have anything for him” is ridiculous, idk if it’s a writer’s issue or what. They should hire more writers some for mid card, some for main event some for tag teams ect..that way a few writers for an entire locker room don’t get last trying to keep up with all of their talent or something.

        • daleh33

          They are taking advantage of him since he is there day in and day out. Unlike others that take vacations 3 or 4 times a year, or guys that get a hang nail and need a month off. The biggest problem is Cena has an issues with Dolph and that ended any push he was getting back when he was the World Champ. Cena uses his Hogan card on anyone that works better than him.

  • George DE ANIMAL

    Shave his head, have Baron Von Raschke become
    his manager!! A new star is born! It Could work!

  • The Z-man ✔Verified

    And again it’ll lead to nothing

  • Joshua Bosley

    I’ve said it before and Imma say it here again, whether its the screaming promos where he says nothing interesting, or the boring moveset, or the lack of hand to hand skills shown(why does he tape his hands like a boxer if he isnt going to act that way) , to the lack of submission moves( Kent state hof wrestler right?) , DOLPH ZIGGLER IS BORING!!!!! AND NOT ENTERTAINING!!!
    I don’t care if he can take a bump or make someone else’s offense look devastating!!! that’s what jobbers are for, HE ACTS LIKE LIKE A JOBBER OUT THERE and yall think he’s freaking HBK!! he’s not HBK!!!! its an epic insult for ziggler to be mentioned in the same breath as HBK get the f outta here!!!

    • Possible

      Jobbers almost never work that hard to sell stuff.
