The last two weeks we have seen Dolph Ziggler and John Cena have a few interactions which seem to indicate an upcoming feud.

Cena stopped Ziggler last week when he tried to blindside him with an attack, and this week we saw Ziggler pop in during the AJ/Vickie/Cena segment early in the show.

This feud has been tested on the European tour with many fans giving positive feedback on the matches, and usually when the WWE tests a feud and it does well, they move forward with it.

With Dolph seemingly always on the verge of a main event push, this could be the perfect feud to finally get him over as a top superstar in WWE.

There is no denying that Ziggler has worked as hard as anyone else on the roster to stand out, and he finally deserves to be put on top of the heap.

John Cena, if he were to lose clean to Ziggler, would be the ultimate stepping stone for Ziggler.

Cena doesn't need to beat Ziggler to be considered a top star, but Ziggler needs to beat Cena to get there, and that is why a match between the two at TLC or even the Royal Rumble would be a great move by the WWE.

Cena is a solid hand in the ring and over the last year he has really stepped up and proven he is not a five-move wonder anymore.

His matches with Punk have stolen the show consistently and Ziggler going up against him would be sure to do the same.

Ziggler likes to boast that he "steals the show," but is it boasting if it is true?

Many nights, the match of the night has to go to Ziggler due to his incredible athleticism, willingness to try dangerous spots and constant improvement in almost every way.

While it would be an unlikely end, seeing Ziggler get a clean win over Cena would catapult him further up the ladder than a win over anyone else but the Undertaker.

Even though it is widely accepted that Cena is not the best "wrestler" in the company, he is certainly the measuring stick when it comes to success.

A clean win over John Cena would be the best thing for the young show-off to finally move up to the top of the mountain.

What do you think?

Would Cena be able to push Ziggler up to that top level of competition, or will he continue to be the best-seller for everyone else in the company?
