WWE: 5 Reasons Why Dolph Ziggler's Championship Reign Is No Guarantee of Success

World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler is in a precarious position in WWE. Although Ziggler is holding one of the top championships in WWE, nothing is guaranteed to him because of it.

Ziggler’s former tag-team partner, Jack Swagger, even defeated him in a non-title match. What is worth noting about this is that it occurred just a week and a day after Ziggler captured the championship.

His first high-profile pay-per-view title defense will occur in May at Extreme Rules. Dolph Ziggler will be defending his championship against both Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger.

Unfortunately, it seems that even though Ziggler is the champion, he is just playing the role of a pawn holding the championship for someone else. In suffering a loss to Jack Swagger quite recently and losing to Alberto Del Rio only a couple months ago, Ziggler’s reign as champion has not started strongly.

He might be the “show off,” but he needs a strong win at Extreme Rules to truly live up to that moniker.
