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. The former world heavyweight champion stated that his goal was to keep winning over the fans and putting on tremendous matches until he can finally convince someone in the front office to give him another sustained chance at being a main event level performer.

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. Some are saying that Ziggler is in trouble with management because he booked comedy shows for himself without approval from management.
