Re: The Show-Off: Dolph Ziggler Thread
I have three plausible ways to repackage Ziggler:
1) Go the 2008 Jericho route, strip away everything that made us like him (cut his hair, change his theme, stop shaking his ass/flicking his hair sweat, dress in hipster suits, talk slower and more monotone) and just become darker, albeit, boring character. Made instead of flopping around like Shawn or Mr. Perfect, he's more a mat-based "shooter" type like his amateur days; "No Gimmicks Needed" Dolph Ziggler
2) Be Goldust's protégé, which supports my theory that Dolph Ziggler the character has lost his mind and will start doing weird shit after moving to Raw. If Goldust is the director, that makes Dolph his star; Please don't make him into Stardust.....please
3) WWE's version of Tetsuya Naito, often bored and acts like he doesn't care; sleep in the middle of matches, hit on women at ringside, slowly take his time getting into the ring and whatnot; Ziggler's thinks he's so above everyone else in terms of talent, he blames this on him not meeting expectations
