I always get into arguments with these lunatic Ziggler marks who keep saying he is Top 5 in the ring, has stolen the show countless times, and has contributed numerous MOTY quality matches.
I pulled out the abacus, looked at the only source I could to try and quantify what is a "good" match (Wrestling Observer) because a good match is in the eye of the viewer.. and Ziggler has only had exactly 1 **** match in his 7 year WWE career (TLC v John Cena). Funny thing is, his best effort was STILL not good enough to steal the show because they were outdone by Shield/Ryback/Kane/Bryan.
People also blow their load every time this guy takes a god damn bump for a simple clothesline.
You have Christian in your sig and avatar, yet you got the nerve to call out Ziggler? LMAO! What did it take Christian, like 17 fuckin years to finally get a World Title? No wonder why you're so bitter about Ziggler, he's busted his ass just as hard as Christian and will be winning a World title this year.
Also, to the OP the reason why my respect goes out to Ziggler and why I appreciate him as a performer is because he's actually had to work his way up the ranks. He's been given nothing and he's busted his ass to get where he belongs, and is STILL WORKING. He won MITB and is taking the longest time to cash it in, just because creative has nothing for him. Even Swagger and the Miz successfully cashed in and didnt take long! Ziggler was in the spirit squad FFS, and look at where he's at now. Ziggler consistently goes out and works 100% to give the best match possible, his selling is awesome, his finishers are great, he carries himself like a star. You can give the argument about his mic skills, but ppl are really calling in his in ring work? Really? Fine I'll give some memorable matches he's been in.
Vs. Punk at RR 2012, and the one right before that on Raw.
V. Bryan at Bragging Rights
V. Cena TLC 2012
V. Jericho SS 2012
V.Sheamus(obviously cant remember dates, but hell take any 3 of his last 5 or 6 matches with Fella, they've all been fuckin gold and pretty intense.)
V. Orton NOC
V. Edge RR 2011
Those are just a few. Also, he continuously puts on great matches on Raw and SD! even those you can tell when its obviously a throwaway match, his in ring work sucks you in like a vortex and his storytelling is amazing. Not to mention he is putting up with all this jobbing shit, and it will all be worth it at the end. Look at Sheamus, ADR, The Shield(huge fan but gotta use em for this)when they debuted on the main roster, they immediately were booked to feud with top stars. See what I mean? Hardly anyone pays their dues these days, which is why Ziggler has made me a permanent fan.
