WWE News: Potential WrestleMania Opponent for Dolph Ziggler Revealed

Gone Baby GoneContributerOctober 15, 2016

Its disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.

Especially if you are looking forward to all that WWE has in store for Friday night's SmackDown.

All right, now with that out of the way, it's time to get down to business.

Well, here is some rough WrestleMania news for Dolph Ziggler fans, as it appears his main-event push will be put on hold for yet another month.

According to PWinsider.com (via WrestlingInc.com):

On Monday, WWE officials discussed having Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston vs. Kane and Daniel Bryan for the WWE Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 29. This is why Langston attacked Daniel Bryan. By what happened at the SmackDown tapings last night, it looks like they are moving forward with this plan.

During the taping, Ziggler defeated Kane, while Langston and Bryan scrapped outside of the ring during the Kane-Ziggler bout. Sadly, it seems that the WWE doesn't have much faith in "The Show-Off," as he continues to lose week after week and has not scored a big win since 2012's victory over John Cena. Ultimately, Ziggler is great at selling moves from his opponents and knows how to put them over.

Ultimately, this may prove to be detrimental to his career. Let's face it, Ziggler has been playing the role of jobber to many of the WWE's top stars and hasn't received much in return for his work.

This makes me wonder if the company has given up on him altogether.

The fact is, it was only one short year ago, that he was in a better position than his former tag partner, Jack Swagger. Now it’s 2013 and the tide has turned as Swagger is being pushed to the hilt and is slated to take on Alberto Del Rio for the World title at 'Mania.

In the end, we will have to wait and see what happens after WrestleMania. Let's face it, this event can make or break one's career and could prove beneficial for Ziggler. However, I wouldn't count on a main-event push if he and Langston walk out as tag team champions.
