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.
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.
