Default Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston is everything that is wrong with WWE

I think this match, which we have all seen 1000 times in the past couple of years, has to symbolise everything that is wrong with modern WWE.

How many times have we seen such matches thrown out on TV for absolutely no reason other than to fill time? It's completely insulting to the viewer's intelligence, thinking that we'll automatically watch just because it's a wrestling match.

Yeah, these two can work well - in the sense their moves are crisp, dynamic and sometimes innovative.. but the lack of storytelling, ring psychology and any reason to watch this shit every single week means I can't help but see both these guys as total jobbers, no matter what they do. Even Dolph, who is holding the world title..

All this would take is an easy fix.. cut the match time in half, give Dolph and Kofi a microphone and let them rip on the microphone against each other without a script beforehand. Not only does it build up interest in the match, it builds up confidence on the mic in both performers and lets the audience know who both guys are, instead of the generic roles they are currently playing.. WWE need to stop trying to hide these guys flaws all the time and let them try and develop them.

I've said it before, but if you look back to the Attitude Era, the reason guys like Foley, Triple H, Rock, Austin and Vince all got over as bonafide main eventers at the same time was because they all got mic time on every show. There was much less pointless wrestling on Raw back then, because the writing team knew that it kills the product as a whole.

The roster right now is actually stacked full of talent, but the problem is the WWE never let them loose and develop themselves on the mic unless they're CM Punk or John Cena.. and in the end, the whole product suffers for it

The 2 biggest problems are the World Champion being thrown into a meaningless match (because it won't lead to a Kofi feud till at least summer) and the fact that Kofi will really gets nothing out of this. I can't remember the last time Kofi was in a real feud (Barrett doesn't count).

Eventhough he's World Champion, I don't know who I feel bad for more, Dolph or Kofi.

Even though what your saying makes complete sense and would make the show ten times more enjoyable and logical, I'm sure it'll be ignored or shot down here because your a Russo fan and Jim Cornette and the rise and fall of wcw dvd have told people they should hate him.

Well exactly, but like I said in my post, if you give both guys a mic for 5 minutes before the match and cut the match time in half then you build up interest in both guys short-term and long-term. Even if the WWE has no confidence in either guy on the mic, let them develop so they don't just keep falling back on this same pointless match over and over

Yeah its pretty shit alright the entire show was shit last night i think i actually enjoyed Smackdown more for once although it was my first time actually watching SD in some time. There is no excuse for not being confident on he mic or at least be able to say a few words like kofi has no charisma at all, ziggy does but we need to see it more, obviously this doesn' apply to kofi but if more guys practiced their mio skills instead of pumping iron the pruduct would be a whole lot better.

I agree, the whole show was terrible and chock full of these meaningless matches that had zero build to them. I just think Kofi/Dolph has become the symbolic match of this era, considering the amount of times it has happened in the past few years

The funny thing with this is that even if we had that match since like forever, you don't have a rivalry between them. I mean, if you are going to makes two guys face eachother during years, try to build that like a classic rivalry... And the same for Rhodes Scholars / Team Hell No. Month of matches between them but nothing that build something ....

Agreed. Also I said it last night but I'll say it again; a World Heavyweight Championshi vs an Intercontinental Champion matchup should be the main event of a PPV. Not a random throwaway TV match with no build

When did Dolph go against Wade Barrett?

But yeah I do agree that a Champion v Champion should have some build to it.
