Dolph Ziggler has been with WWE for a long time now, and although many have praised the WWE Superstar for his athletic ability inside the ring, Dolph has never truly reached the top of the card despite the fact that he’s a two time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Ziggler’s supporters have been waiting a while to see him shine in the spotlight, but it seems that his time at the top may never come now that new stars are being pushed into the main event scene.
Fans who watch SmackDown Live on a weekly basis have probably noticed that Ziggler hasn’t appeared on the program in a while, and it seems that Ziggler has unfortunately found himself in creative purgatory.
Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez recently answered fan questions during the mail bag portion of Wrestling Observer Radio, and one fan asked why Dolph hasn’t been appearing on TV.
Meltzer noted that Dolph has been working WWE live events, but the company doesn’t have a program for Ziggler, so he’s not getting pushed. WWE officials have certain stars they’re interested in pushing by giving them matches on pay-per-views, and it just so happens that Dolph Ziggler isn’t one of them at the moment.
It was noted that Dolph’s situation is similar to what’s going on with stars like Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Tye Dillinger where they’re not being focused on, so they’re not appearing on TV on a regular basis.
It seems that Dolph Ziggler has once again found himself in an unfortunate position where he’s been passed over in favor of other WWE Superstars.
One can’t help but wonder how much longer he’ll be staying with the company if things continue to go this way. YouTube star Trisha Paytas recently claimed Ziggler plans to leave wrestling soon, and Shinsuke Nakamura hinted that Ziggler is interested in wrestling in Japan once he’s free from his contract.
