In the past few weeks, United States Champion Dolph Ziggler has struggled in maintaining a string of victories on recent editions of Monday Night Raw. With Jack Swagger breathing down his neck at every given moment and his relationship with manager Vickie Guerrero on the verge of a breaking point, many speculated Ziggler to drop the strap to one of his impromptu opponents at last night's Night of Champions pay-per-view event.
However, being the sly opportunist he is, the bleached-blonde Superstar managed to leave Buffalo with his title still intact after picking up the scraps of Jack Swagger. Whether you like it or not, Ziggler has certainly restored some prestige in the lackluster United States Championship with last night's successful title defense, much like he did with the Intercontinental Championship late last year.
Now, one question still remains unclear: Who will be next to step up and challenge Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship?
Given Raw's abundance of strong mid-carders, I've accumulated a list of six possible challengers that could present us with an exciting title contest come Hell in a Cell, maybe even an episode of an upcoming Raw broadcast. Could we see the lengthy three-month championship reign of Dolph Ziggler come to an abrupt end to one of these six credible Superstars in the foreseeable future?
