Dolph Ziggler defeat: A win-win situation

Next Story

So, we're still fresh off the back of WWE's debuting pay-per-view Payback, and its fair to say that one of the more intriguing events on the card was Dolph Ziggler relinquishing his World Heavyweight title to Alberto Del Rio. 

It came as a shock to the majority of fans, including myself, that watched last years Money in the Bank PPV and rejoiced at Ziggler's ladder match triumph. Finally, WWE would be able to showcase Ziggler on the platform he deserves. 

However, just two months after winning the title on the night after Wrestlemania, Ziggler had lost it in his first major title defence. Madness? Not exactly...

Lets be honest, Ziggler has been a face in the eyes of many fans for a long time, and was a firm fan favourite, despite his 'heelistic' features, alongside AJ Lee and Big E Langston. 

What better way for WWE to turn one of its biggest stars officially 'face', than to have a failing 'face' in Alberto Del Rio turn heel In the process? The way in which the match was won is enough to reignite the feud and allow the 'hard-done by' Ziggler to seek revenge.

It's a win-win situation for WWE, making a fan favourite 'face' and returning Del Rio to his rightful role as a heel.

What could stem from this is what excites me. It would not serve any purpose having Ziggler, a good guy, accompanied by Langston and Lee, the bad guys.

Ziggler will win the WHC back very quickly, thats obvious, but a breakaway from Langston could set up a stellar match between the two at Summerslam, and, if built correctly, would be enjoyable to see? Surely?
