Technically, the contract is now Langston's because he signed his name on the dotted line. Vickie would work in favor of Dolph, but also recognize the legality of the contract, and says that Ziggler is at fault. However, she issues a match with Langston vs Ziggler in which Ziggler if he wins will have a newly drawn up MITB title contract in his name. Should Langston win he is the MITB contract holder. I would have Dolph win, and pin the big man 1-2-3. I honestly think fans would get behind Dolph Ziggler. You would have to admit Langston falling through with an angle like this proves him to be brain, and not all muscle.
sounds like a lame idea

I'm all for it if it means he might win a match or even a feud.

He's pretty lame as a heel, so I'm all for it.

Well, that's interesting.

I'd like to see Nostalgia and Ziggler mark's opinion on this, they'll probably be pissed.

Re: Backstage News On Why Ziggler Might Turn Babyface Soon

Ziggler as a babyface might work....but given WWE's track record, I am not confident about it.

I remember when they turned Edge face. He became borderline retarded and could only say one word: "Spear Spear Spear!"

How has Miz' face run turned out? He is now a bad joke telling doofus.

Or how about Big Show & Mark Henry? When they are babyfaces, they are just smiley happy people that are best buddies with John Cena.

Sheamus. He goes from being a bad ass fighter to being Mr. Smiley Pants that tells awful jokes.

I remember when they first turned Orton face in 2004. They gave him a pretty girlfriend and he respected the legends! Wow...not cool at all.

John Morrison. Cool Rockstar as a heel. Annoying smiling goof as a babyface (Mr. Ziggles!)

Even CM Punk. CM FUCKING PUNK started turning into Mini-Cena at the end of 2011 and I was like "NO! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!". Thankfully the programs with Jericho & Bryan pulled him out of that, but still, I couldn't believe how uncool they were making him at that time.

I mean yeah, there are exceptions. Del Rio is working at the moment, but he never really worked as a heel to begin with, so he is sort of an anomaly. I am just fearful that if they turn Ziggler face, they are going to take control over him and make him into something that we will all hate and turn him into something that doesn't resemble what he is now.

^^^ I completely agree, Ziggler needs a slow turn to face. A sudden turn like Miz won't work for him, because he needs to establish an actual reason for turning.

Re: Backstage News On Why Ziggler Might Turn Babyface Soon

After begging for a Miz face turn and seeing the results thus far I'm iffy on this. On one hand he's over as fuck as a heel and even gets pops, but depending on how his character is played out as a face this could end badly. Either way I think they should wait a bit longer, despite him being heel for just as long as Miz was.

Some bad guy screws him for the belt, takes the spotlight. Ziggler screams about being screwed, being overlooked despite being the best performer the company's ever seen but that but management doesn't want him on top (hence defending the MITB twice), but he steals the show, has to prove himself over and over.

Basically, repeat his real life interviews. He's literally the same guy. "I'm the hardest worker, I do (some crazy exercise regimen) to get these amazing abs, I get better yr after yr, I would be a 5-time champ already if I was 3 inches taller but instead I'm better cuz it motivates me. I should be in the main event, and if you don't put me in it I'll make my match the main event." (paraphrasing) Stealing the show is his actual philosophy, no exaggeration. The fact that he can also be a smug bastard about it is why he's a perfect anti-hero. Just give him a reason to hate a heel.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks

Re: Backstage News On Why Ziggler Might Turn Babyface Soon

You know, you figure that they would have had this all planned out when bringing in Big E. Having Vince change his mind on everything practically hurts everyone involved. I don't think Dolph will turn face just yet.

Going to be strange seeing him as an dominant face rather than an underdog heel.
