The Miz doesnt have "it", and neither did Swagger but they both won WWE/World titles, so I think Ziggler, who has been putting on great matches, can one day be champ, but I wouldnt rush it like the WWE did with the Miz/Swagger.I can't see it. Ziggler is really nothing but the guy who puts over the guy that WWE actually wants to push.
He's a very good wrestler, but he does NOT have "it". He just doesn't.
WWE doesn't care about wrestling and Swagger is a former ECW champ and is pretty big and we know Vince's hard on for big men.The Miz doesnt have "it", and neither did Swagger but they both won WWE/World titles, so I think Ziggler, who has been putting on great matches, can one day be champ, but I wouldnt rush it like the WWE did with the Miz/Swagger.

I agree with your post 100%. He feels right at home with the IC belt around his waist wrestling in the midcard. And I know people compared him a million times to this legend, but I think his career will turn out kind of like Mr.Perfect's to be completely honest.The real test comes when he tries to advance to the next level from where he is right now. Dolph Ziggler feels right as "Vickie's lover" and Intercontinental Champion putting on excellent midcard matches. At a certain point, he's going to have to prove there's more to him than that--demonstrate to all of us that he can offer a whole lot more. He's getting better, he's sooo much more comfortable on the mic right now than he was a year ago, but he still has a long way to go. Also, as fine as he is in the ring, his style could be argued to be "midcardish" in its blending of technical/brawling/high-flying/indy-like speed, etceteras. He has an impressive moveset, just has to put on the finishing touches of ensuring that every move feels as though it truly counts.
He's perfect right where he is, so let's not get ahead of ourselves. Whether he emerges as something that demands to be elevated higher is up to him, I'd say. WWE's not as high on him as a huge future star as they are on guys like, say, Miz, Punk, Del Rio, Swagger, Kofi, Morrison, etceteras. He's almost like the orphan of the Youth Movement, but he's picking up the rear nicely and he could very well surprise many in the next two, three years in how far he can go.
I'm on the fence because it's an open book and we're still waiting to see more chapters written. It's not like Del Rio where the guy just walks in one night (was there in attendance, whoo!) and you say to yourself, "He's a future world champion in WWE." (Honestly, I knew Dos Caras, Jr. long before his WWE debut and went on the record here to predict him becoming a world champion a few months before his actual debut. But nevertheless...) Ziggler's going to have to get the rough climb treatment over a long period of time. I just can't tell you whether or not he can get sufficiently over without leaning on Vickie, or if he has a great babyface run somewhere inside of him, I just don't know, but he's got a tougher road ahead of him due to being so far back in the Youth Movement pack--I doubt WWE wants every single one of the Youth Movement prospects of today to become a world champion since that dilutes the importance of the championship(s) but if Ziggler's talents demand that he be pushed that hard one day, he could very well make it.
In other words, I don't know. I wouldn't count him out, but I can't say that he's set, either. Very mercurial and murky.
