WWE: Dolph Ziggler slams wrestling's part-time superstars

Football News

WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler has become the latest star wrestler to air his concerns as WWE's part-time performers continue to take over wrestling.

It is a tough situation for WWE. The majority of WWE's part-timers are legendary wrestlers that fans want to see. But most of them now have a lot more than just wrestling on their mind, with many enjoying the delights of other pursuits in life such as movie stardom.

But WWE are usually left in a catch 22 situation when legends such as The Rock and co decide to return, with full-time superstars getting bumped for the main event opportunities at big pay-per-views. It seems this trend is starting to get to one particular superstar, with Ziggler airing his views following his triumph at Hell In A Cell.

Issues out massive warning

“Of course, legends can call out whoever they want and do as they please, but they can’t just show up and get handed matches," Dolph Ziggler told The Sun.

The Intercontinental champion was certainly not overly happy post-Hell In A Cell despite the brutal defense of his belt last night after he beat Cesaro. Rather than take his opportunity to revel in the victory, Ziggler went into detail on the subject of part-time wrestlers.

“Of course, legends can call out whoever they want and do as they please, but they can’t just show up and get handed matches," Dolph Ziggler told The Sun.

Exceptions to be made

But rather than completely taking his frustration out on the growing trend of legends bumping off young and upcoming wrestlers for big shows, Ziggler insists there are some exceptions to be made.

"I’m all for Sting being involved in any possible way. Even though I’m sure it will take away from some other young up-and-comer’s time, the rare occasion of seeing someone like Sting, who’s never been in a WWE ring, just to see him do something would be great for the fans and that’s what it is all about.”

The reality

Dolph Ziggler makes a strong point with his comments post-Hell In A Cell. There is certainly an issue with part-time wrestlers taking over from young stars and stunting the growth of some of WWE's potential superstars.

But what Ziggler has to realise is that many of these part-time superstars have built up WWE and made it what it is today. Even legends such as Sting. Although he hasn't even performed in WWE, Sting has given so much to wrestling. In the end, what it boils down to is ticket sales and revenue, and more often than not it's legendary wrestlers that capture the WWE Universe's imagination more.
