Re: How long can a Ziggler WHC reign be?
My bet is that he wins the belt at TLC, Ryback wins the Rumble and kicks the shit out of Ziggler at Mania in about 5 minutes. So I'll say December 16'th to April 7'th, roughly 4 months, just a little under, which is WAY too long for somebody as horrible as him. He certainly won't be booked any better than he is now, and he'll lose every time that the title isn't on the line, because like Bryan, he's merely the placeholder for the pet project.
Given Ziggler's booking under normal circumstances I'd say a week to a month, tops, but with WrestleMania around the corner, they'll want people like Sheamus and Orton in bigger programs and Ryback needs a jobber he can steamroll over, they won't want him beating Sheamus.

When WWE was struggling, it's Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in the main event going 60 minutes, people are leaving during the main event of WrestleMania, you can check the video tape, and Hall and Nash have both told me that Vince said that night, that he would rather have a half full arena cheering for the guy that he says to cheer for, than a full arena cheering for whoever they want.
