Dolph Ziggler Frustrated
Dolph Ziggler was very frustrated with the decision to take the World Heavyweight Championship off him at WWE Payback last month. While he understands it was part of a double turn that also involved Alberto Del Rio, he was very disappointed in his title reign that had been in the works since the Money in the Bank pay-per-view last year. Ziggler was badly concussed to the point where he lost nearly two days of his memory. He required a lot of rest and downtime only to come back and end up getting booked under.

More on TNA Cuts
The reason for the cuts in both the TNA office and to the talent roster are completely budget related. The company is spending more money with television and production on the road and is being forced to "trim the fat" in whatever ways possible. Dixie Carter, who has a reputation for being extremely caring, takes the cuts personally and doesn't notify talent herself. Al Snow has had the daunting task of informing talent.
