He needs to really expand on that SHOW OFF gimmick. Does he show off Vickie to the world, or just his headstand? At least pair him up with a hot girl, to make his gimmick seem somewhat true.
Ziggler could really do with it, especially since his RL personality seems to be similar to that. He has a fitness model look, dates a pornstar, got dumped by a stand up comedian for beeing "too athletic in bed" so he would most likely feel natural at it, not to mention he comes across as somebody who has game. I'd give him some sort of player gimmick where he gets most divas, changing his gf every 1-3 weeks, depending on how fast they want him to "steamroll" through the divas division. It would probably give him either cheers for beeing alpha or boos stemming from jealousy (and beeing alpha) from the male audience, and he would really cement his show off gimmick by that.
It's not really hard tbh, can say the same about a lot of roster members. A lot of wrestlers seem to have funny personalities in RL, but when it comes to the WWE they are only allowed to show a glimpse of their personalities.
I completely agree with these two posts.
Dolph Ziggler should be the Derek Jeter of WWE, the guy who's dating a new supermodel every month, who carries himself like a legitimate star. An individual who cannot be denied, much less ignored.
I think what is so stifling about the entire Ziggler situation at this juncture is just how quaint the character is, how limited and nearly pointless he is. But even more so, I feel like Ziggler has lacked progression and evolution for quite some time now. He's been stuck in neutral thanks to his eternal association with Vickie Guerrero, and because WWE is lazy with him and refuses to update his look, his attire, his entrance--fundamentally everything that points to him being a midcard talent. Of course, his lack of promo time--made conspicuous by his rare shot at speaking on the microphone for about two or three minutes this past Raw, rather than letting Vickie speak for him as per usual--compounds the problem dramatically.
So, yes, in a sense, Ziggler has been rendered somewhat bland.
