Shame he can't do anything about his voice it just makes him seem pathetic tbh, every time he speaks I think so that's what happened to Zack Morris.

That says more about the roster on a whole than anything about Ziggler's "charisma". He is only a small notch above Ezekiel Jackson for charisma, lol.

I'd give him some sort of player gimmick where he gets most divas, changing his gf every 1-3 weeks, depending on how fast they want him to "steamroll" through the divas division. It would probably give him either cheers for beeing alpha or boos stemming from jealousy (and beeing alpha) from the male audience, and he would really cement his show off gimmick by that.

It's not really hard tbh, can say the same about a lot of roster members. A lot of wrestlers seem to have funny personalities in RL, but when it comes to the WWE they are only allowed to show a glimpse of their personalities.
I completely agree with these two posts.

Dolph Ziggler should be the Derek Jeter of WWE, the guy who's dating a new supermodel every month, who carries himself like a legitimate star. An individual who cannot be denied, much less ignored.

I think what is so stifling about the entire Ziggler situation at this juncture is just how quaint the character is, how limited and nearly pointless he is. But even more so, I feel like Ziggler has lacked progression and evolution for quite some time now. He's been stuck in neutral thanks to his eternal association with Vickie Guerrero, and because WWE is lazy with him and refuses to update his look, his attire, his entrance--fundamentally everything that points to him being a midcard talent. Of course, his lack of promo time--made conspicuous by his rare shot at speaking on the microphone for about two or three minutes this past Raw, rather than letting Vickie speak for him as per usual--compounds the problem dramatically.

So, yes, in a sense, Ziggler has been rendered somewhat bland.

He isn't a copy of Billy Gunn just because he has blonde hair and occaisionally uses the Fameasser as a setup move.

Ziggler is much better in the ring than Gunn, and he's also better on the mic. That's about as relevant as calling any chubby black guy a D-Lo Brown clone., or any powerhouse fat guy with a little bit of agility a King Kong Bundy clone.


Anyway, I agree that his current character and storyline are bland. Ziggler himself isn't bland, but he's simply not able to really do anything except the same thing. He needs to be put into some sort of actual storyline so we can see his personality, or to turn face so he can do the extra typical face things that get cheers.

The guy himself has potential though. He's already "there" in terms of ring skills and is in good physical shape. His look is pretty good too. It's all about improving a little on the mic, and otherwise it's pretty much just booking after that. Needs a new, more exciting finisher, needs actual storylines and fueds that don't suck or end as soon as they begin.

As usual, they will develop his character once he got the big belt. His association with Flair seems to be postpone since the company doesn't want to get Flair back until the TNA lawsuit is over according to certain sites.

Have they develop Sheamus' character? Or face CM Punk, or Alberto del Río... I don't expect anything from WWE nowadays. They are terrible with the characters.

I really like him. It's time for Vickie to let him fly solo though but I do think he stands out.
