Five years ago this week, Dolph Ziggler made his initial appearance on WWE television. Although he appeared on programming in the past as under other monikers, it was on the September 15 edition of Raw in 2008 that the Ziggler character officially made its debut.
On that night, Ziggler introduced himself to Kelly Kelly and then-Raw General Manager Mike Adamle during a backstage segment. The bleached-blonde Superstar has since risen through the ranks in WWE and has become a two-time World Heavyweight Champion as well as a former Money in the Bank Ladder match winner.
From shaking hands with fellow Superstars to headlining pay-per-views, Ziggler has proven many naysayers wrong. He's been built up perfectly over the course of his career and has a long list of accolades to his credit.
However, Ziggler still has a lot left to achieve in the business and is undoubtedly a future face of the company. With that in mind, I'm sure it won't be long before the former United States Champion is put back in the chase for the prestigious prize.
Here, I will rank the top 10 best matches of Dolph Ziggler's illustrious career up to this point. Of course, these are all based off of my opinion alone, so be sure to keep an open mind while reading.
