First, I will say, there's nothing wrong with being a mid carder in the WWE. Ziggler is still famous and has made a name for himself, someone else said it, but Ziggler's ability to make the other wrestler look good is definitely what allows him to get in the ring with the main eventers from time to time.
That being said, Ziggler definitely needs to do more than just sell good to get over. He's got all the characteristics of the bland, boring heel, with nothing else added to it. He's snobby, kicks guys when they are down, and believes he's the best.... ok, that's pretty much every other heel in the business lol.
He looks like hes a fish flopping around in the ring half the time.
His selling is good no doubt, but its a bit over the top IMO.
Current Top 8
Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Big E, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, CM Punk
Not removing until(started March 17 2013)
John Cena turns heel
Randy Orton turns heel(Summerslam 2013)
Ryback wins a world title
Daniel Bryan wins another World Championship(Summerslam 2013)
Hulk Hogan leaves TNA or Wrestles again(Impact October 2013)
Stone Cold Returns to WWE
Shelton Benjamin, MVP, John Morrison or Carlito return to WWE
His main problem is he's completely undervalued by WWE and seen as a jobber to the stars. He loses way too much for anyone to take him as a legitimate threat to any major title. He needs a face turn and credible booking in order to push him to the next level.
I wish people would get away from thinking that champions have to look invincible. Why the fuck would you get behind a champion who you have no doubt at all whether he can win or not. I would much rather Ziggler is getting battered around the ring, fighting just to stay in the match and then manages to overcome the odds to beat his opponent than another Cena no-selling everything.
Ziggler makes his opponents look strong which will be great when he eventually gets a face run because his wins will actually matter. Why do people want another Cena/ Ryback/ Sheamus who couldn't sell water in the desert
Dolph Ziggler and AJ work, but why is Big E langston there?
He's at ringside, but does nothing when Ziggler is getting his ass handed to him by someone. Remove Big E from AJ Lee and Dolph because he doesn't fit in there.
He's the best at selling at the moment. He can oversell but that's better than not selling at all.
