Deeper Dive: WWE Burying Dolph Ziggler & Baron Corbin?

I noticed this bit of news the other night. Once again, Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler will tangle on a WWE PPV. Actually, not entirely true. They will once again lock horns….on the pre-show. Now, it may just seem like it, but it does feel like every time these two fight, it’s on the pre-show. Which should say something, either about these two working together, or these two in general. So let’s take a deeper dive, shall we?

On one hand, this isn’t on Dolph, unless he’s being punished. He’s been part of PPV main events, so WWE knows he can handle the bright lights.

On the other, they clearly thought highly enough of Baron Corbin, seeing as he was promoted to the main roster having never held the NXT championship. Not that one has to hold that title before moving up, but it doesn’t hurt.

So what is it?

I don’t know, but I think it’s about to run it’s course. That neither man was deemed worthy of a spot in the Money In The Bank ladder match says that, in all likelihood, these guys have mid-card feuds written all over them, at least for the near future. Except that, the pre-show isn’t even mid-card.

Here’s my thinking. Dolph is, in my humble opinion, too talented to be getting overlooked. Yes, they wanted a good first program for Corbin, but they are acting like Dolph is a washed-up guy near retirement, and he’s not. If they don’t want to insert him into the World Championship picture any time soon (and I doubt they do), then I beg them to get him into either the US title picture or Intercontinental picture. ASAP. Because if they don’t, I fear he’s wrestling his way to asking for an early release, which would be a shame for him and for his fans.

As for Corbin? He’s young, it’s his first program on the main roster, and he’s been allowed to work with a former World Champion. That’s a pretty good start, even if they did stick him on the pre-show too much. He has to be able to elevate his game and really leverage that Andre Battle Royal win (as if it actually means much).

Something has to change, and soon, for how these guys are booked.

    Corbin should win this FINAL match decisively and move onto someone else like Cesaro or Sami Zayn. This feud is stale. I compare this feud with the repeated battles like Cena vs Edge. Too much in a short period of time. That was one of my reasons to not like either Cena or Edge.

    So this match was moved to the main card. announced this yesterday. They moved this match and the Sheamus vs Apollo Crews match to the main card and added two tag team matches to the pre-show


      Haha this site will probably try some shady crap,do an “article” and then delete your links. Maybe they’ll just change them to go to this site instead.

        HOAK vs. Ravens and Lisnow at UFC 203


          Them boys probably never been in a fight in their lives. Only thing ravens fights is how to spell his own name.

    Here’s a thought. Turn Ziggler heel already, team him with Corbin. New Tag Team Champs
