 Dolph ZigglerThe Storylines

-World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler continued his feud with Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio. My biggest problem is this: The managers are getting over more than the actual superstars!

What does WWE do when they begin to give Dolph Ziggler credibility? They use Ricardo and Zeb Colter more to get a feud over. I know that Del Rio is a very weak face because he cannot be personable. He seems forced and fake every single week. He is much better suited as a heel. Jack Swagger has the look and the ring skills, but has very little charisma in the ring. There is a reason why Zeb Colter is the savior for Swagger's career. Without Zeb, Swagger would easily be off of television or on WWE Superstars every single week.

Overall, the ladder match at Extreme Rules makes sense. They are all athletic and won their world championships thanks to climbing the Money in the Bank Ladder. It is logical and will be an exciting match. The story is just very weak right now. What is the personal beef between the three guys? Give the wrestlers more of an opportunity to tell the story. Dolph is very underrated on the microphone. I want to see him, as champion, carry the feud.
