I'm really hoping they do something with Ziggler.  That name is atrocious but the guy is a good wrestler.  It's amazing to think that he was one of the Spirit Squad cause they were portrayed so poorly.  Those are five guys that the WWE really messed up with.  They could have taken all of them with separate entities and made them into future stars but when you're first and only big feud is against friggin DX, what do you expect is going to happen?  He impressed me when he took on Batista a few weeks ago and he impressed me this past Friday with taking down Khali.  Yeah, he had to use a chair but that was such a great heel move and it got him some pretty good heat.  

Dykstra would have probably gotten his ass kicked a lot.  Randy Orton said he slapped the shit out of him one time cause Dykstra got smart towards him.  I would have loved to have heard that convo.  I don't even remember watching Johnny Jeter, Mikey or the other one in singles action..  I can't even remember all of them cause they were used so poorly.

Anyway, back to Ziggler, they need to take him and put him in the US title picture along with Morrison, Mysterio, Benjamin and build that division up.  It could become a really good division with these guys in it.  Ziggler is gonna be one of those guys that gets cracked on at some point for that name.  Him and Morrison feuding one day will be perfect.

What do you all think of this guy?

Ziggler along with Kenny Dykstra were the only two Spirit Squad guys who really had any future in WWE, the others were just making up the numbers.
I think the SS gimmick could have gone further had they not been jobbed out and humiliated by DX on a weekly basis for so long, and Kenny and Nicky(Dolph)could have become a regular tag team.

Kenny was talented but his backstage issues were the death of his WWE career.

As for Dolph, i like him and unlike many people i dont hate his name, sure it sounds like a porn star but that amuses me because WWE is so PG these days.

He is charismatic and seems to be fairly decent in the ring. He has had mixed fortunes so far being jobbed out but also gaining a couple of nice wins.
The angle with Khali was good, it allowed Ziggler to come across as a strong heel by beating down Khali, using a chair didnt make him look weak because most wrestlers would need a chair to inflict that kind of a beating on a man who is more than double their size.
I just hope the result isnt Ziggler suffering a clean defeat to the lumbering Khali, Khali is now recognised as a mid card guy due to his limitations as a wrestler, so i see no reason why Ziggler shouldnt go over, fair enough if he has to cheat to win but he should win.

Agreed on the last point there fletch. I'd like to see him get the win over Khali, but i cant see it happening. I dont remember the last time someone got a clean win over Khali who wasnt HHH.
Are they really gonna have the last 2 guys to beat him be HHH and then a new guy?
Hes definately got potential and mic ability. whilst the name is retarded, i find it amusing. specially as he has to introduce himself all the time. memorable, at least.

not too sure about the mr. perfect references from JR, but yeah, I think a nice mid-card fued would be good for him. JoMo or shelton.

i like his entrance music too :]

Dolph does have potential, he has shown it plenty of times, hopefully WWE don't mess him around and push him then decide they dont want anything else to do with him.
 
This is what Nick Nemeth's third character, as he went from Kerwin White's (Chavo Guerrero) sidekick to Spirit Squad member to Dolph Ziggler, so heres hoping third luck is the charm. He has the potential, he has a good look, he can speak on the mic but the question is, whether WWE sees that in him.

* Although he lost the match, i'm glad he didn't get pinned or made to submit like you would have expected.

* It would have totally killed him if he had lost his open challenge segment properly and not through DQ.

* Having him take out Khali with a chair makes him look pretty good. Maybe he's going to get a push.

Trice, you took the words right out of my mouth. Cept at least Zack Ryder's theme is "melodic" enough, and I use that term very loosely, to be remotely capable of catchiness. Dolph Ziggler's new "I am perfection" theme song is just downright annoying.

I actually dont mind the new theme, plus they are obviously having him loosely play on Curt Hennigs Mr Perfect gimmick.
His previous music was ok but i always think entrance music with lyrics gives the impression the wrestler is a bigger star.

indeed! like stone cold, the undertaker, ric flair and cm punk! :D

jokes aside, i get your point, his wasnt a theme you could see coming on and makin the crowd pop. but the miz's isnt spectacular either and theyve not seen the need to change his, despite the fact hes on probably one of the top 3 pushes in the E atm (avec JoMo and Punk)

Give it time though and i can see Miz getting a vamped up theme.

Heres a few examples of wrestlers who got new music with lyrics when they became stars:

Batista.

Bobby Lashley.

Triple.H.

Edge.

Christian.

John Cena.

Steve Austin did have a version of his theme with lyrics which was actually really good but they dropped it after a while in favor of his original version for some reason.
