Dolph Ziggler Frustrated Over Role At SummerSlam & Direction In WWE

Dolph Ziggler spoke with Arda Ocal ahead of SummerSlam last week and discussed his frustration with only having a mixed tag team match at the show, as well as frustration over his character's stagnation since losing the World Heavyweight Championship. Ziggler went on to say that he envisioned either still holding the World Heavyweight Championship or remaining in the title picture at this point. The video is available at this link, or embedded below:

    It’s a shame that Dolph lost his spot after getting a concussion. When he cashed in the contract the night after Wrestlemania, the NJ crowd gave him one of the biggest pops I’ve ever heard in ten years. Dolph had a lot of momentum. Hopefully, he regains his place near the top of the card.

      They have all started to lose their appeal once Dolph lost the title. AJ doesn’t seem to get a huge reaction she once did. Well Big E just plainly doesn’t get anything.

    I knew his earlier rant about being tired of Cena wasn’t a work, and this pretty much backs that opinion up. Ziggler is frustrated and rightfully so. That concussion came at the worst possible time for him and WWE just hasn’t done anything with him since he came back. I’m curious to know if they still would’ve had him drop the title so quickly even if he hadn’t gotten hurt. There has to be some reason as to why he isn’t being pushed to the top other than that concussion derailing his run. It just doesn’t make any sense to me without there being some reasoning behind it. He’s too good for the spot he’s being held to.

      WWE hates extremely talented wrestlers.

    Ziggler deserves to be frustrated, and deserves better then the storyline he’s been involved with. But for Christs sake, go about it professionally. Instead of complaining in interviews that you know are gonna go viral and become available for everyone to read or listen to, have a sit down with management and talk face to face like a man and air your grievances. While Vince and HHH may not like what you’ve got to say I guarantee they will respect the fact that you went directly to them and not behind their back. I’m a huge Ziggler fan, but if he keeps going about it this way, he won’t sniff a title opportunity ever again, and he couldn’t blame anybody but himself.

    whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Big Crybaby Ziggler needs to find a gimmick that is his own tweener or Heel he will never make it as a face. Then he needs to find a decent finisher. Oh and he needs to stop whinning.

    Dolph deserve more that he worked for. It was bad enough he was a Spirit Squad member that became a jobber. Same thing goes for Bryan Danielson, The Miz, and CM Punk. I guess you got to be a silver spoon wrestler like Rock, Cena, etc to get favoritism. As for Swagger. He’s a Angle bite off, and they need to hurry up and bring Chris Hero up for Claudio just to have Kings of Wrestling back.
