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.

To help further sell Sheamus as a heel, WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler is unable to compete on Smackdown this week. He is not actually injured. It will be interesting to see just how far the front office takes the story. There are no live events planned for this upcoming weekend, as the performers are being given a little bit of rest before taking off for a tour of Europe. Ziggler is expected to be on Monday Night Raw this week.

In the opening match of Wrestlemania, Daniel Bryan defeated Dolph Ziggler, R Truth, Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper in a ladder match to win the Intercontinental Championship. WWE expected a great performance here, and that is exactly what they got. Lots of good spots. Very high impact. The end saw Bryan and Ziggler trading stiff headbutts on top of the ladder before Bryan knocked out Ziggler.

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.

Some further details have been revealed about the offer that Brazzers made to Dolph Ziggler. He revealed during an interview that the porn company offered him a deal for $10,000. He also mentioned something about being able to pick his own partner. The goal was to use his popularity with professional wrestling fans to draw in people to their content. Obviously, WWE would not allow this to happen, as it would create negative news headlines.

Those of you that are hoping to see Ryan Nemeth making a return to WWE and joining his brother Dolph Ziggler on the main roster should probably exhale because it seems very unlikely to happen. Management had not expressed much interest in a comeback in the first place, but it is being said that since he spoke out about their abuse investigation of Bill DeMott that his chances have dramatically dropped to almost zero.
