Subject: Dolph Ziggler On Raw
Date Posted: 18/September/2008 at 13:26

Quote On Raw tonight, a wrestler by the name of Dolph Ziggler made his debut by introducing himself backstage to Mike Adamle & Kelly Kelly and later in the night, Lance Cade & Chris Jericho. Dolph is WWE developmental wrestler and former WWE World Tag Team champion (when he was a part of the Spirit Squad) Nic "Nicky" Nemeth.

His ring name may be based on a character from the 1997 film Boogie Nights as there is a character by the name of Dirk Diggler, who happens to be an adult star.

Nemeth's call-up to the main roster ends his nearly two-year long stay in developmental after being shipped away when the Spirit Squad disbanded in November 2006. Nemeth has wrestled in a countless number of dark & house matches over the past year, but was unable to break through until tonight.

* Being based on someone from Boogie Nights, do this mean his character is going to be a porn star........

* If so they could get Val Venis involved in the storyline and it could make for some funny stuff with the divas.

* I like the gimmick of going around introducing himself to everyone and not saying much else.

* It was particualarly funny him introducing himself to Mike Adamle and him saying "I know who you are, I hired you".

did this guy look like a doofus or what?  I never seen Boogie Nights so I have no idea about the original character but Nemeth looked like a dork to me.

* Quite the debut for him going into the ring and interupting a promo by JBL.

* I had no idea it was Nick Nemeth until I read about it the day after his new Raw debut.

* He's going to go bald quickly with having to die his hair so often to not show up the roots lol.

* It was hard to tell if he was face or heel, but the reaction of certain superstars makes me think he's babyface.

Well, I was there live this past Monday night, and when he interrupted JBL's promo, I thought we were gonna see a fight. But all he did was introduce himself to JBL. JBL looked confused, and practically the entire arena was laughing their heads off. It was more of a WTF funny rather than a HAHA funny...if that makes any sense at all.

LOL he was the best in ring from the spirit squad in my opinion, even though kenny got the singles deal, it will be intresting to see how he does, after kenny had just bombed the last year or so.

The 'roids must of messed with his mind. Allow me to present a timeline of events. He gets called up to the roster as 'Nicky from Spirit Squad'. Heavily pushed. Wins World Tag Title. Joins forces with McMahons. Gets crushed in feud with DX, even getting 'posted to OVW' in an on screen skit. After 2 years, unbelievably gets a second chance, despite not showing any skills deserving of it. Gets hyped in backstage skits. Then, before his TV debut, he FAILS A DRUG TEST?! Even DH Smith wasnt that dumb, at least he got his debut before he failed and got dumped back in developmental. I hope 'Dolph' gets fired now. The idiot deserves it for such a hash job waste of time.

* I guess for him to be fed to the hometown hero he is still in the dog house.
 
* I was surprised it wasn't a complete squash and he impressed me with some of his moves.
 
* Batista could have sold the kick for longer than he did before he recovered.
 
* Quite funny him picking up the mic just to introduce himself like Lilian already had. Dave was a bit too slow to catch him when he kept leaving and entering the ring ha ha.

on that last exchange of him running out of the ring and back in, that kick he caught Batista with was sweet.  I wouldn't mind seeing that again but then again, Batista sells nothing.  The wrestlers need to get together and talk to Vince about that.  Part of the exquisiteness of a match is the damage being done to a performer and seeing if they can recover from it or not but that bozo doesn't sell anything thus it takes away a lot from the match.

The only thing about that match is batista looked so bad and out of place that it made ziggler look really bad (not like kennedy when he fought batista and made himself look like a real deal)

Batista needs to go back to his old evil ways screw unleasing the animal all thats done for him is let him chase after the title for like 2 years

he needs to unleash leviathan

Low to mid-card? If given the time ANYONE pretty much can be a WWE main eventer look at the current RAW Main Eventer

- Oldtista
- John (I can't wrestle Cena)
- The Broke Back Kid Shawn Michaels

I mean seriously?

you would put Dolph Ziggler in the main event?  You've got to be kidding. 

Cena and Michaels, whether you like them or not, are both good.  Shawn Michaels is great.  that guy can still pull amazing matches out at every twist and turn.

I can't believe you would want to put Dolph Ziggler in with these guys but then again, put him against Shawn Michaels and Michaels will make him look like a star.

Nick nemeth can be main event, yes he has the talent but in current day WWE, his gimmick just screams mid card at best. I don´t really give a crap about the name, look where jack swagger is and that name is veeeery similar to Zigglers. (WWE has something with the GG)
 
Also when you listed the main eventers... where is Orton? Or jericho? (and just for his mic skills) JBL?

That would be "Ziggler".....Dolph Ziggler....glad to meet you. Dolph has some upside in my eyes. There is "something" there if he ever finds his niche. He's a very athletic kid.

* Why does JR always go on about people finding their 'niche'? It's creative who have gave him the stupid gimmick to do.

* He probably won't last until the end of 2009, because he's never going to get over with the fans.

* He's much smaller now since his drugs ban and against Jeff Hardy he didn't even do his roots.

Don't speak like that about my number 7 draft pick! He'll do something (if only get me points for showing up and saying his damn name) and I have a feeling he'll have staying power if ever allowed to compete under an actual gimmick that doesn't involve looking like a total douche.

Quote Dolph Ziggler was almost revealed as the newest member of the RAW brand on tonight's show. Dolph was recently fired from SmackDown by Teddy Long. As announced by the GM, Vickie Guerrero can be on the RAW roster if she wins her match against Trish Stratus on next week's RAW. Vickie said on commentary that it's strictly a business relationship between she and Dolph now.

His run on the B show has earned him another go at being on Raw.
 
He's outgrown Vickie, who should not have been brought back beside him.
 
Still time to get him a match sorted for Wrestlemania.

Good points, admin.
 
Dolph Ziggler, who has arguably the worst name in the business, has really grown in leaps and bounds since he was just introducing himself backstage(remember those days? lol) and as a member of the Spirit Squad.
 
Vickie would just hold him down now on RAW as he's ready to fly solo. She sold him down the river last  week on Smackdown! and WWE puts them back together the following Monday? It really didn't make much sense to me. I know they played it off as "just business now" but it was still dumb.
 
I'd really like to see him get a match at WrestleMania vs Daniel Bryan for the United States Championship or Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental Championship, get one of the titles, and start feuding with John Morrison or R-Truth, two guys who are top notch upper mid-card guys.

So I guess that's it for Ziggles, since they've turned him into a generic Orton.

IMO he was never over anyway and the only way he gets any heat is because of Vicky, but now they've taken away any look he had or whatever so I guess it's back to FCW or future endeavored. I for one won't miss him, he really brings nothing to the show, but he did improve a lot.


Posted By: thundarr2000
Date Posted: 19/April/2011 at 22:12
JTB are you smoking something?
 
Zigglers new look instantly teases a face turn.  It will be so easy for him.  He just needs to split from Vickie now.
 
His hairstyle also matches the last one I saw his younger brother sporting.  So maybe WWE is already think of the Ziggler Brothers.

He struggled to get over as a heel though, which is like x10 easier than getting over as a face.

I dont think its an overreaction either, I was like "WTF?", horrible move. The tights were bad and the hair was worse, really took away his charisma to be honest.

Looks like they might be getting serious about him. Wonder if they're regretting calling him Dolph Ziggler yet.


Posted By: King Razor
Date Posted: 20/April/2011 at 02:13
I thought it made him look dull and boring. At least he had a unique look before. I actually thought Dolph was a pretty good high mid carder but don't think he is anywhere near good enough for the main event. Now I feel like he has no identy and will get lost in the mix. I hope I'm wrong and he develops another personality however it doesn't look promising to me.

Quote Vickie Guerrero introduced the "new and improved" Dolph Ziggler on Monday's episode of Raw as he unveiled a freshly trimmed head of brown hair just before facing Evan Bourne.

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion is not thrilled with his new 'do as he wrote the following on his personal Facebook account the morning after the show: "I feel like 'bender' from Futurama, when they chopped off his antenna...."
 
Anyone remember when MVP tweeted that WWE told him he couldn't change his hair?  Or when CM Punk went blond for a couple of house shows but WWE told him to dye his hair back to black before he was on TV again?  Merchandising was said to be the main reasoning.  WWE didn't want either MVP or CM Punk to look too different than their WWE action figures or video game images.  WWE has to approve image changes.  The talent can't go changing their appearance without WWE signing off on it. 
 
That's the biggest reason I'm thinking that Ziggler is heading towards a face turn, or a re-pack.  A lot of people have said that Ziggler is too dependent upon Vickie as his heat magnet.  So even though Ziggler is a former World Heavyweight Champion (for 11 minutes) he really isn't seen as a real main event talent.

I like his new look as it makes me take him more seriously. I didn't see much of this so called 'new attitude' on Raw though.
 
Spirit Squad Look: Tag/Jobber.
 
Blonde Hair Look: Midcard.
 
Short Dark Hair Look: Main event push?

I honestly don't see any changes happening now that Dolph Ziggler is on Raw. If he's even in contention for the WWE championship I'll be surprised. Dolph is average but not where he could be he like other superstars don't draw enough heat. Vickie Guererro is doing wonders for him as far as that goes but other than that he's not someone that draws too much attention.

         I'm dreading another Kingston Ziggler feud, this time for the US title and not the IC like last year on SD!. Cena owns the WWE title, and if Ziggler went after it, it'd have to involve Cena - but I just can't see the Miz angle dying anytime soon, which only leaves the US title for him to go after.
        Truely dumb to have Ziggler lose his blonde hair which was a trademark and helped him stand out. Now he looks like Evan Bourne lol.

Perhaps it is a hint towards a new gimmick? After all, now that he is on Raw and has been lost under big, heel names such as Miz, Punk and Del Rio, he is in dire need of a fresher character and possibly a face turn. So I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Ziggler will ditch Vickie in the next two months and become a badass face.

Dolph continues to look generic. Nothing really working with the new hair and trunks ...

His in ring ability is still there and I hope by going over Santino they are rebuilding him up to where he was before. What happened to the title contender that Dolph was?


I was really starting to get into his character when they pulled the plug. This new look does absolutly nothng for me, and even Vickie can't get me to notice him anymore. This isint a good look for Dolph my friends ..

Yeah, looks like he's gonna get the Shelton Benjamin treatment if something doesn't change soon. I wouldn't go as far to say he is now a jobber, he has just hit a rough patch but he is definately on his way down. The best thing that could happen to Dolph now is for him to either move back to Smackdown or win the MITB at the PPV as he has not stood out on Raw like he did on Smackdown so he needs to either go back to where he did stand out, or do something that will make him stand out quickly. I really hope that they do invest some stock into him however, he could be a great future main eventer imo or just a good upper mid-carder with the odd title reign, much like Chris Jericho.

Its just sad that people like Dolph who are proven in the ring don't get pushed, but green wrestlers with no buisness near the ME picture do.

I really like DZ and think he has all of the capabilites to become a great WHC or WWE champ ..

Maybe the look was just 2 test the waters, and if so, project failed, but WWE better not just let this guy slip away. He adds so much to the ME, he has a great look, and the 'Perfection' gimmick fits him so well.

There's this old saying , "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" ....

According to Zack Ryder's new YouTube video, Dolph Ziggler is now getting mistaken as Ryder in public.  And while I like Ryder, it's not good that Ziggler lost his "look" and the fans can't seem to recognize the guy now.

He may be blond but his 6-7 weeks looking and being booked like a jobber will take awhile for Dolph to overcome.

His time on Raw is still to really get going, and wins against Kofi aren't going to make any difference.
 
I'm still disapointed his new look wasn't given more of a chance. He was back to his midcard B brand look way too soon.
 
He had more purpose when dating Vickie than he does now with her being just his business associate.

Not staler than his 1 day change 2 being a brunette ....

Dolph for WHC 2012 .... YESS!!

They brought him to Raw, Why?
 
He was the number 1 or 2 heel on Smackdown before he jumped back to the "A" brand and now he is what the 4th or 5th heel here.
 
And his feud that will not mean anything with Kofi is continuing.
 
He is the US champion but really no one sees that title as anything special anymore. A real misfire by wwe here

Idk ...

I've always liked Dolph and think him getting the title is definitly a plus for him.

With Vickie @ his side, he can really put some heat on the title and make it matter more. I agree with you in that he was far better used on SD. He was a WHC player and he was getting established as a real threat to the title IMO. He is believable and plays the role great. But Raw is where he needs 2 shine. Raw is where the 'big boys' play, and he needs that exposure if he's going to be pushed hard.

I've been smelling the face turn scent on Dolph latley. Just from his facial expression 2 his lack of enthusiamsim when sometimes talking to Vickie. I really hope the creative team keeps Dolph fresh with the fans and let's him have a nice, healthy run with the US title. Not 2 say Kofi wasn't a great champion, but I just feel Dolph is a better fit for that title and could bring it back to glory if he's booked right. If anyone can do it Dolph can!!

I believe baby!

Isn't being the US Champion after being World Heavyweight Champion (for 11 minutes) still considered a downgrade in WWE?
 
I just hope that WWE does something with the US title now that Dolph has it.  Kofi was in so many non-title matches that it was almost like he wasn't the US champ anyways. 
 
Dolph has the potential to make this title mean something again.  As a heel he should be defending the title at all costs... "If you're not cheating, you're not trying" should be his motto.
 
Now if only Dolph would get into a short program with Chris Master over the title.

         Maybe Shaemus can sell Ziggs the neat outfit he had made up for his US title run lol. I thought Ziggs winning the US title was pretty obvious before the PPV. Vickie was an absolute heat magnet on SmackDown, and of course Vince wants her doing the same thing on the live show - and to do that her boy has to be around a title. Pretty much a rerun of the Kingston/Ziggler IC feud from last year - when the Vickie-Ziggs gimmick took off.

Typical 4th of July segment here ...

And yes, there's a cake on the table. We all know what happens with cake in pro wrestling

Loved Kofi getting some mic time. WWE really needs 2 start building him as an all around guy. He could definitly be a future WWE Champ ...

It might be a little stale, but seeing these 2 in the ring going @ it is a treat everytime. Enjoy ...

Quote WWE United States Champion Dolph Ziggler debuted a new theme song on tonight's RAW. Dolph is also now using the catchphrase "Follow That
 
Ok a few things wrong
 
1. What was wrong with the original theme song
 
2. What are we meant to follow
 
3. the two first two combined

When did he get a new theme? Cause his theme song Monday was the same as its always been 
 
Oh and his "Follow that" attitude is something that Shawn Michaels had in the mid-90s behind the scenes. (just saying is all)

Ziggler has been allowed to talk more on his own. He seems to be doing well.

During the World Title feud, he allowed Vickie to do most of the talking. He really needed to start taking control and transfer some of Vickie's massive heat towards himself.

Now I notice that Vickie's role seems to be minimized, while Dolph himself gets to shine a bit more.

If I see one more Kofi/Ziggler match though, I'll tear my hair out.

I hope to god after Raw this is the last we see of Vickie and Dolph as partnership. Dolph has the potential to be great if WWE just puts some faith and belief into him. He has improved so much on the mic, despite the writing of his promos being just slightly terrible (see his promo on last week's Raw) and he is as good as ever in the ring, despite him needing some time to showcase his talents, as he is the best pure wrestler on Raw imo. Turn him face and give him a feud with the Miz to rebuild his career, that's what I say, a feud with A-Ry is a step forward though.

Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas of Right After Wrestling recently spoke with Zack and Justin, members of http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2011/0810/542777/dolph-ziggler/#" rel="nofollow - - rock band Downstait, who recorded the themes for Miz, Alex Riley and Dolph Ziggler, here are some highlights…

On Dolph Ziggler's Reaction To His Music: "We actually saw Dolph Ziggler backstage once and we asked him 'what's happening?' And he just shook it off like we were fans and then we said, 'hey man, we do your theme song' and he just walked passed us and said 'thanks'. 'I am perfection' is a song we did last September, but they just waited for his character to turn harder before they used it.

I guess Dolph is mad he didnt get the awesome Downstrait songs like "I came to play" and "Say it to my Face" and just got the decent "I am Perfection" song. LOL
 
I mean to no-sell the guys who sang your entrance theme is a little cold if you ask me

Obviously he was never going to beat SuperRan, but........

1) He put in a really good performance in what was an entertaining contest.

2) He didn't look out of place in there with one of the very top guys, so may get a main event push soon enough.

Ziggler never looks out of place with main eventers. He didn't with Cena, he didn't with Edge and like you said, he didn't with Randy. However, I don't see a main event push unless he goes for the WHC. It would be good for Smackdown, which needs heels, and great for Ziggler, who needs to get off Raw where he is lost in the shuffle.

Ziggler has all the tools to be a great upper midcarder. Alot of people say he's ready for the main event sene and i think that he needs a little more time before him getting rushed into the title picture.
 
I think that dolph was paired with vickie dor a reason. This guy gets little heat compared to vickie. Anyone knows by now that vickie comes out first before dolph to get the crowd to boo or dolph has vickie by his side whenever he does a promo. it was fine when dolph was still trying to move from the lower midcard to the upper midcard but he needs to get her heel on him instead of just her because her type of heat will help him maybe get a win over a main eventer for once.
 
Another thing is  why is he doing this show off gimmick? I mean him doing a head stand is cool but i know alot of people who can do a head stand. i dont even think its a gimmick at all its just a nick name. i think wwe should give alot of their talent gimmicks and make them run with it. Guys like danielson, kingston, and even evan bourne could be used differently other then them just smiling and being nice all the time.
 
If wwe really wants ziggler as a main eventer they would give him a talking segment on raw. Like Edge use to have the cutting edge, y2j had the highlight reel, christian had the peep show, they could have ziggler improve his mic skills and help give him more heat by doing evil things to his guests

I can seeing Ziggler doing the talk show bit.... but only on Smackdown.   But I can't see them doing that with Ziggler on RAW.  A few weeks back, Ziggler went over his time and they cut him off with music.  I know that seems like a little thing.  But that seems to be the sort of thing that Vince doesn't forgive very easily.  Ziggler would have to prove he could handle the bit first on a show that Vince can always edit later if needed.

True thunder, smackdown would be the perfect place for ziggler to develop his mic skills there good but they'll only improve on smackdown because on raw alot of the main eventers have most of the mic time and with less star power over there it will benefit ziggler 
 
 I also think ziggler needs a wrestlemania moment next year. The only match i remember him in was that match with snooki involved and that just didn't make him a main eventer. I heard a rumor that he might get a main event push to wrestlemania and i think he shouldn't be push that hard because that could bury him.
 
I say let him face mick foely or booker t and have him win then he could brag that he beat former world champions. mick foely has helped orton and edge have great moments and booker t is putting over cody rhodes so why not?

In 2012 are we going to see a new WWE champion at some point with Dolph Ziggler?

Whilst it won't happen next week, I do believe they dropped the secondary strap off him to bump him to the main events much like they did a few years back with Miz.

Despite his booking against Ryder it's pretty clear creative are high on him.

I was so happy to see Ziggler win the gauntlet last week. He has been deserving of a proper main event push for a while now. He is the highlight of every show not only in the ring but he is now stealing the show on the mic. While I know he won't win on Raw nor will he go into a full WWE title program it is a step in the right direction and I think he will be the no. 1 contender at Royal Rumble too since they usually have non-credible challengers at Royal Rumble. Dolph Ziggler is among the best in WWE right now (I only have him behind CM Punk in my rankings) and 2012 will be his year and he is undoubtedly the future of the main event and I will go out on a limb and say he is the new HBK.

Before he reaches the main event, they gotta get him the hell away from Vickie Guerrero. She is nothing but a hinderance to Ziggler nowadays and all she gets him is Go Away heat.

Vickie of 2012 is nowhere near the level of awesomeness she was at in 2008.

Fully agree, the whole point of giving him Vickie was to give him a mouthpiece that can draw heat but now he doesn't need that, he can do it all on his own, he's a big boy now. My only fear is that if he drops Vickie he may start getting pops just because he is so damn good, it happened to Punk, Orton and Sheamus and Dolph seems like the kinda guy that would draw heel pops. I guess it wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing right now because WWE is kinda lacking top faces what with Orton's injury and Cena's unlikely, but possible heel turn.

         I was genuinely surprised when Ziggler won the WWE strap, but congrats to The Show Off. It's a big rub from WWE for the great work Ziggs has been doing for the past 6 months as US champ and helping get Ryder over.
         Laurinaitis getting his comeuppance from Punk is going to be good fun.

Wait, what?

I dont know what happened in the main event, but if you are referring to the actual Punk/Ziggler match, it ended by countout. Cant win the title on a countout mate, it was just Ziggler celebrating with the belt like last week.

I doubt it very much. I can't see them giving him a title reign so close to Wrestlemania. I am 99% sure that he won't be the champ at WrestleMania so there is no point taking the title off Punk, I would much rather see Punk have a strong, and lengthy title reign up to WrestleMania. It would be refreshing to see a 5/6 month title reign for once.

to really show off IF he beats punk at rumble - he should then get his rematch v ryder and beat him and then have 2 titles  - that would give him alot of reason to show off and brag etc etc and get some heat too

Lol, well you know what they say about dreamers don't you............nothing but the point is that if you're too optimistic you get let down and then begin to hate the product. That's what I used to be like but now I just assume that WWE will let me down (well most of the time) so when they don't it's a pleasant surprise. But back to Dolph Ziggler; I wouldn't hate for him to win at Rumble but it wouldn't make sense and I'm a big Dolph Ziggler fan. I would just rather things to make sense than WWE blindly pushing everyone who deserves it straight away.

I dont see him winning the belt but I see him and Punk putting on the MOTN as long as the referee shenangians is kept at a minimum.
 
And Mike is right, doing a handstand (while cool) doesnt exactly scream main event. The hair arguement he had was stupid though.

I can see a really tidy storyline with this where he doesn't defend it, Ryder pursues it for a few weeks then Ziggler says the only way he'll get the belt back is if he cancels his internet show.

show gets cancelled, ziggler vacates the belt so Ryder doesn't get it back, cue monster heel heat and a reason to drop a show that needs dropping.

This thread is getting crazy. I'd say IF Ziggler did win the title at the Rumble the best way to go about it for me would be for Ziggler to constantly defend the title to the jobbers. It would allow him to show off by doing headstands and shit throughout the match, as he does, and really disrespect his opposition, getting him huge heel heat.


Posted By: Craig
Date Posted: 07/January/2012 at 01:08

Have I been reading this right - His hair means he doesn't scream "main event"?! ... The worlds gone crazy!!

 
IF they we're to give Dolph the belt at the Rumble I fear it would do more harm than good as he'll no doubt then drop it at EC as I don't think they'd trust putting him in a Mania main event yet.

Let him have a strong showing at the Rumble and then at EC, drop Vickie and let him win MITB if they bring it back for Mania like has been rumoured.

Dolphs promo on raw was by far the best one he has done in his carreer that i can recall - delivering like this on a weekly basis should push him into constant main eventing - he and vickie got a lot of heat too - i just wish some weeks he would come out alone and get some decent heat but #WhatEvs

It was good except for the part when he said he was gonna win the Royal Rumble but I guess everyone's allowed to make a mistake. I thought it was good because it showed that he can cut a different type of promo other than the ones he always does where he talks really fast in a list because he needed to show a different style.
