Dolph Ziggler held the belt for less than two hours after being awarded it. That did more harm than good. He couldn't defeat CM Punk last year despite everything in his favor, his longtime manager/girlfriend was an annoying middle aged woman and has been jobbed out to Cena more times than I can remember. Now he's playing second best to the AJ soap opera.
Daniel Bryan got his push...after beating somebody beat down. He lost in the opening match of WM in seconds, couldn't get the job done against Punk and played a comedy buffoon to The Rock, AJ and Kane. Although scripted, that backstage segment in June with McMahon himself showed how WWE management view Daniel.
These guys are glorified upper midcarders at best...the eyes of the WWE system.
And Ziggler has the MITB. And like I said, Ziggler and Bryan are much more promoted than Morrison. There's a difference between "top star" and John Morrison, a BIG, BIG difference, and somewhere in between "top star" and John Morrison lies wrestlers like Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler.
