Dolph Ziggler is a tremendous wrestler. When he won Money In The Bank on July 15th, 2012, many people, along with myself included, knew this guy was going to be special. Week after week, he "Showed Off" in that ring, winning many people over. And as those weeks came and gone, the clock was ticking until Ziggler was going to finally cash in. But none of us knew exactly when.
April 8th, 2013: As I was there in the arena, I knew something was in the air. I just had this feeling something big was going to happen. And something big did happen. That moment when Ziggler's music hit, one of my favorite superstars strut out from the back, handed his briefcase to the referee. A short time later.....
And then it happened. The crowd was going crazy, the emotions were running high, we had a New World Heavyweight Champion, and we had a New Top Star crowned....
Or so we thought. Just about a month into his World Title reign, Dolph Ziggler suffered an untimely concussion. Dolph Ziggler was out of action until over a month later, on June 16th, 2013 at WWE Payback. Dolph ultimately lost his World Heavyweight Championship right then and there. What he earned...what he worked hard for...it was all gone.
Many thought that Dolph would eventually get the World Championship back by around this time. But instead, Dolph Ziggler is now starting where he was before he won Money In The Bank. Losing matches and fighting for the United States Championship. He was on the top of the world on April 8th, 2013, but as of right now, he seems to be a man without a direction.
Why has WWE given up on Dolph Ziggler so quickly? A concussion took him out, and he really hasn't been given a shot since. I am pretty sure if Dolph did not suffer that concussion, he would be our World Heavyweight Champion right now. However, we will never know what would have happened, because as of right now, it doesn't look to good for Dolph Ziggler. And that's a shame, because he's one of the best at what he does. Let's just hope WWE realizes what they're doing to somebody they should be pushing.
