    Yes but DB held the WHC for awhile, he had an established run. Ziggler has not, to put someone in a position to build stars that hasn’t had that main event time is not smart. I do agree that he the program makes sense with there time together, but Ziggler is still owed a title shot. If they need someone to build stars thy new to go against people who have had that main event status so the person there helping is with someone who has been through that pressure of the company and us fans. Ziggler is a great talent and could really carry the company, but the guy hasn’t had that pressure as champion and every time he gets that’s opportunity then it’s taken away, same with Christian. You can work for the company forever but if you haven’t had that time at the top then how can you establish people if you haven’t been established?

    No, the reason Ziggler is working with Langston is due to the time thats been put into their story. To put Langston with anyone else at the moment would be forced as hell.
    The fact that Langston has been with Ziggler since he came to the main roster is exactly the reason that Ziggler is the man to get him over. And as for title reigns, is that how you judge a star? Should we judge Daniel Bryans star status on the fact that he lost the title in an 18 second match or should we judge him on his while career and the matches he puts on?
    Ziggler has been a star for a long time now whether you think it or not.

    So Ziggler who is a barely established superstar needs to help make stars? The guys been champ for what like 3 days total both times? Dolph needs to be main eventing not help Langston, Langston should be working with another mid card guy to see if he can even get over not force a guy who deserved better to do it. Kaitlin is one of the best female wrestlers they have other than Aj and Natalya.l, and is a formal women’s champ, so dolph doesn’t need to help her. I’m not complaining, but a guy finally wins a major title an is loved by the fans, then he loses the title immediately and now he should be helping get guys over Where is the logic in that?!

    .. in a match with the womens champion and helping to get Langston over.
    Whats wrong with that?
    Simple fact is AJ and Dolph are so over that the best use for them at the moment is to use them to elevate others. Kaitlyn, no matter how much WWE tries to push her, is nowhere near over with the fans, so she really needs the rub of guys like AJ and Dolph. Plus neither Kaitlyn or Langston are that great in the ring, so you put them in with people who can make you look good, and its help for both of those two.
    People moan when WWE doesnt make any new stars, then moan when established stars are put in matches with low and mid carders. How else are they supposed to make new stars if they dont face stars?
    Jericho losing to Fandango did nothing to hurt Jericho, and did everything to elevate Fandango. Thats how it works. Thats also why Joe Hennig is mixed in the Lesnar/Punk feud.

    This is what a Summerslam card is supposed to look like. Every match has build up and on paper it looks like an impressive card. The only match that might not be that great is the mixed tag and even it makes sense being there.
