Despite never truly reaching the top of WWE, Dolph Ziggler has been with the company for over a decade, and throughout his career, he's had so many nearly moments.
Whenever he finally reached the top of the mountain and became a WWE Champion, it was cruelly taken away from him, with his last run ending due to a concussion injury after being kicked in the head by Alberto Del Rio.
After arriving as a member of The Spirit Squad, Ziggler didn't have the best of starts to his WWE career, but after demonstrating what he can do in the ring, and what he can say on the mic, he was the only one from said stable to make a successful career for himself.

Numerous titles later, Ziggler is still kicking about on SmackDown LIVE and is the current Intercontinental Champion after recently defeating The Miz in a Career vs Championship match.
Ziggler is known to be one of the best sellers in the business, and it's very rare that he puts on a bad match or cuts a bad promo, but despite these facts, he's never been deemed a main-eventer.
Speaking in a recent interview, Ziggler discussed what it is like forging a relationship with the boss Vince McMahon, and he admitted that due to his heavy schedule and workaholic nature, it's tough to build one.
Ziggler revealed how he's always been told to build a relationship with McMahon, for obvious reasons, but he also admitted that it's easier said than done.
The IC Champion said: “I have always been told it’s important to have a relationship with Vince but at the same time it is difficult.
"The one or two days a week you would see him he is extremely busy getting the shows ready for the live audience, so if you find two or three minutes you’d better have something good to say as he is a workaholic and you are eating into his time.
“He is a little scary at first, but the more you talk to him, the more you deliver in the ring and the more he can count on you [the more time he has for you].
"For years I have taken the time to say hello and bring up an idea and he is usually very receptive. He has started to trust me a lot more.”
