Ziggler's main event push has been long overdue. Barrett's got great delivery, and that's it. His promos all have the same tone and bland emotion. His matches aren't special enough to make up for it. He's the look and the 'sound' of a main eventer and that's it, his promos aren't special at all.
In fairness, this is exactly what I think of Randy Orton, and he's obviously been pretty successful, but Orton is also really good at acting in the ring.
