Re: Ziggler defines overrated...
Dolph Ziggler has a lot of potential to be a pretty good heel character. As others have noted, he is a great bumper, average seller, has charisma, and is a good worker.
However, he needs to improve in several areas and that's why it was probably decided to pair him back up with Chris Jericho.
His "Show Off" gimmick needs some polishing and I expect Jericho to help Ziggler improve more than just shaking his ass and slicking back his hair and throwing sweat at an opponent. His taunts need to generate heat with the crowd and I hope he is able to figure something out that does that because right now his taunts are fairly bland. Jericho use to do his "Come on baby!" standing flex pin and while I'm not saying Dolph should copy that, he should think along those lines to develop something that is unique to his character.
His mic skills are also lacking and it really feels like he is going through generic heel tactics when speaking and is not putting any unique spin on his character, he really lacks a voice for his character that embodies the "Show Off" moniker.
I'm hoping Dolph Ziggler really buys into this rivalry with Jericho over the next couple months and learns as much as possible from him, he'll be a much more rounded wrestler if he does.
The crowd has just booed the entire WWE roster, camermen and announcers and are cheering for HHH. He finally did it. He buried the entire roster all at once. This is truly HHH's finest hour.
