The thing is, he's not the worst of the worst at promos as some people claim him to be. He's not John Morrison bad. If he was, he would never get any mic time, and he certainly wouldn't be given the position of the star of the WWE Download series he has on the WWE YouTube channel if they thought he was a bad speaker. Guys like: Ezekiel Jackson, Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd, Jack Swagger, are examples of talent who are horrible on the mic and they're probably in the positions they're in now because of it. However no one mentions them, because Ziggler's the only one who's relevant and popular among the IWC, so the people who don't like Ziggler use petty shit like: ''he cant cut a promo'' and he ''gets no reaction'' as a ammo against the people who like him.
It's funny you say if he was as bad as John Morrison, he'd never get mic time, yet John Morrison got mic time himself. Contradictory? Just a little imo. And he almost never DOES get mic time, and he's almost exactly like John Morrison. Personality wise, they're clones almost, except Ziggler is better than Morrison at speaking, but only because Morrison is the standard of badness to which all others are judged on. He's the Hulk Hogan of bad. Using some Youtube show nobody on the planet watches to justify Ziggler being good on the mic is pretty silly. That show is compromised basically entirely of undercard guys and Ziggler just happens to be the star because he's getting the biggest push out of that lot.
Yeah, he's not Zeke or Swagger bad, but come on, he's bad. An average person on the mic is Kofi Kingston or Cody Rhodes, they're not bad, they're not great, they're just in the middle and good enough to skate by. Ziggler is significantly worse than both of them. And saying he can't cut a promo is not PETTY, that's a deal breaker. If you want to be a big star in WWE and you can't talk, leave.
I could post many what I deem good Ziggler promos, but you wouldn't think they're good, because you have blind-hate for Ziggler and probably have a higher standard on what a ''good'' promo is. However in my opinion Ziggler's had some good promos. Is he a great on the mic? No. He's above average in my opinion, but he is in no way awful on the mic like the IWC make him out to be.
I do have a high standard, you're right on that count. The term "blind hate" has got to stop, though. What is blind hate? Anybody who doesn't like exactly what you like down to the letter, 100% is apparantly a blind hater. Which would mean I'm not even thinking about it. According to what blind hate should actually entail, I just hate Ziggler because I woke up one day, looked at a picture of him and said to myself "I'm not gonna like that guy". I assess Ziggler the same way I do everyone else, I see strengths, I see weaknesses. He has no stage presence at all, not commanding of attention in the least. He's bad on the mic and is extremely dull. And even though it's not his fault, he still has probably the worst ring name in the business, third to only McGillicutty and Kassius Ohno, which doesn't help me taking him seriously.
On the positive side, he's got a good look, he's extremely good in the ring (not as good as everyone thinks he is, or even in the top 3 in the company. Top 4.), and he can make anybody look devestating by the way he sells offense.
Blind? Still? I just gave you positives. I don't hate the guy simply because I enjoy hating him. Hell, I'd enjoy him improving to the point where I could become a fan, but we'll never get to that point because he doesn't have the personality in him to get to that level. 6 years of seeing him on tv has made that apparant, nothing blind about it.
