To elaborate on my earlier point - the fact Dolph actually won the IC title is one thing but the match was fucking immense too

What i also liked was Mcintyre attacking Rollins when it looked like Seth was going to hit Dolph after the match

The backstage promo about immediately afterwards only adds to their credibility

This is the perfect role for Dolph and the perfect stage to set up Mcintyre as a legit star - which he clearly is

Yeah they are currently working their way through the rest of the division so it seems. Therefore squashing breezango makes sense as they are probably the weakest team in the division.

Omwards and upwards from here

They got their heat back and continued to challenge the locker room in a meta storyline that's very appealing in the current climate of part time world champions.

Quote The Fashion Police vs. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre: Ziggler and Breeze start this one off and Ziggler drops him. Ziggler hits an elbow drop for a two count early on. Drew tags in and works over Breeze in the corner, then Ziggler tags back in and continues the offense. Fandango tags in and all four men start brawling. Drew powerbombs Breeze onto Fandango, and then they hit the Zig Zag/Claymore combination on Breeze for the three count.

Winners: Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre

- After the match, Dolph and Drew cut a promo saying this beat-down tonight is proof of their in-ring ability.

Pointless squash match. After not becoming number one contenders last week, they should have been booked stronger.
 
Instead they face a comedy team they have already beaten in a one sided match before, that we didn't need to see again.
 
If they didn't want them to face another rostered team, they could have had them beat say two jobber teams in a handicap match.

I'm surprised that after the role theyve been on in recent weeks that they were eliminated from the tag match so early.

However i noticed in particular that Ziggler was the one to take the loss for the team and im wondering already if this is the start of the tension between the 2 before the inevitable break up

There are gradual tweaks they keep making to their look every week and its making them look more and more bad ass / rock n roll / more of a tag team.

They still need their own tag music though

McIntyre is an absolute monster

Kind of feel sorry for Gable having his ass kicked week after week - i wonder if this is the way they are going to get american alpha back together

I would expect we'll see Ziggler and McIntyre pushed for a couple of months while the B Team and maybe Breezango get title shots to firmly cement Wyatt and Hardy.

Ziggler/McIntyre take the belts around Summerslam as you say, leaving Wyatt and Hardy to implode. Long term I think we'll see American Alpha vs Ziggler/McIntyre for the belts at Wrestlemania.

I get that. That's why he should have got a reaction of hate. The English crowd couldn't be arsed giving the Scottish guy any banter chants.
 
Quote Kurt Angle is backstage trying to get cell phone service, when he gets interrupted by Chad Gable. Angle and Gable chat about Gable possibly being in a Money In The Bank qualifying match, but then Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler walk in. Drew talks about beating Balor and Strowman last week, and says they'd love to do it again, but those decisions are above Angle's pay grade now. They make some jokes about Kurt not being in his office anymore, and they mock Gable too. Gable says they aren't as special as they think they are, and Drew steps up top Gable. Angle gets between them, and says they'll settle it in the ring tonight. Drew and Ziggler walk off, and Angle calls them jackasses.
 
Chad Gable vs. Dolph Ziggler: Back from commercial, this one is already underway. McIntyre is at ringside in Ziggler's corner. Gable takes down Ziggler early and wrestles him down to the mat. Ziggler turns it around and hits a dropkick, then keeps Gable grounded. Ziggler continues to work over Gable until Gable takes him down and rolls him up for a two count. Ziggler gets up and starts working over Gable's knee. Ziggler blocks a German suplex attempt, and follows up with a neckbreaker on Gable. Ziggler charges at Gable in the corner, but Gable stops him with an elbow to the face. Gable dodges a superkick, and then rolls up Ziggler for a two count. Gable sends Ziggler int othe corner and hits a German suplex for a two count. Ziggler comes back with a headbutt and then a superkick for the three count.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

- After the match, Drew hits the ring and hits the Claymore kick on Gable. Ziggler and McIntyre stand tall over Gable as we go to commercial.

Management are really behind them, as their heel win streak continues to grow.
 
They haven't been together long, but will be fast tracked to a title match or even a defense no later than Summerslam I would guess.

Drew has star written all over him and I would say he looks the part even more than Roman Reigns. 

WWE have done the right thing here by having Drew work heel alongside a established star like Ziggler, hopefully this can result in Drew getting over strong with the fans organically and then at the right time WWE can pull the trigger on a babyface turn for him. He proved effective as a face both in TNA and NXT. 

A win over Strowman and Balor shows that WWE have big plans for these two.
