When Tyler Breeze was first promoted from the NXT roster, it appeared that he was sitting pretty as WWE immediately pushed him on the main roster against Dolph Ziggler. He even got a big victory at Summerslam. Well, it looks like that is dead and gone now. Vince McMahon no longer believes in Breeze, so his push was terminated, despite the objection of Triple H. That was why Summer Rae was taken away from Tyler.

If we do not see that big Dolph Ziggler push in the near future, then it might never happen, as the former world heavyweight champion has revealed that he only plans to be in professional wrestling for another two years. That sounds about right since Ziggler signed his three year contract extension not too long ago. The belief is that he will venture out into other areas of the entertainment industry.

Management has pushed him a little, but he is stuck under a glass ceiling.

Since WWE wants to push Sheamus as a top level heel, they are going to need someone in the upper mid card division to put him over in his first pay per view back. The top candidate right now appears to be Dolph Ziggler. He is someone that is over with the audience and can make an opponent look better than usual. The two of them will more than likely square off in a match that is early on the Extreme Rules card. The setup should take place soon.

During a recent interview, Dolph Ziggler confirmed that he was indeed upset that WWE is not pushing him. However, even though it bothers him, he uses that as motivation.

When Dolph Ziggler lost the Intercontinental Championship to Wade Barrett, many were under the impression that the move was done simply because WWE wanted to push Barrett. However, there are now reports floating around that backstage heat might have been involved in the decision.
