WWE: Why aren't they pushing Dolph Ziggler?

Even the most unobservant WWE fan will have noticed WWE's hesitance to push former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler over the past year.

The former Mr Money in the Bank saw one of the biggest crowd reactions of the modern era when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase, the night after WrestleMania last year on Alberto Del Rio to lift his second World Title.

Little did the fans know, the title would be taken away not long after meaning Dolph only held gold for 69 days. Those fans have wondered for months why WWE refuse to give "the Showoff" the push towards the main event spot he deserves and now it seems we finally have an answer.

Various reports today suggest that WWE are worried that Dolph is too injury prone, the former United States champion has a storied past in the injuries department and actually lost the world title last year because he suffered a concussion.

Dolph isn't the only superstar with this problem, Christian has also had an injury plagued career which now seems to be all but over, as well as former World Champion Rey Mysterio. Whilst former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan is now suffering from an injury that could recur throughout his career.

Dolph even stated that he was available to step up in Daniel Bryan's absence, tweeting:

"Hey @WWE if you need someone to step up for the next few weeks, I'm already here doing it. Wouldnt even have to outsource"

Sadly this wont be the case for Dolph, as many fans were already outraged when he lost his Money in the Bank qualifying match Alberto Del Rio meaning he will not be fighting to be the next World Heavyweight Champion next Sunday night at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

Dolph did enter what seemed to be a feud with Seth Rollins last week on Smackdown with the two having an epic encounter before they again faced off on Main Event but since Seth is destined to face former team mate Dean Ambrose at next week's event, this feud isn't set to continue.

He could still be put into the second Money in the Bank match for the future title match contract, but given that WWE don't see to want him anywhere near the title scene any more that would mean that he would just be there to make up numbers and put on a usual flawless show, knowing that he will never be on top again in the sport he excels at.
