The way I see it Ziggler really is about to capitalise on the missing main event guys being out. And now with the rumours of Del Rio being injured and being pulled from his match with Sheamus, the logical thing is for Ziggler to be in the match seeing as they've been having matches the last few weeks. Have Ziggler beat Sheamus on Raw and say he deserves a shot at the title for getting the win.
thoughts?

Not that I know of. And even if he were I doubt it would be too soon. It would be a good way to set it up though. During the match for the title Swagger comes out to help Ziggler but instead Ziggler hits him and tells him he'll do it on his own.

They should replace Cody Rhodes with Dolph Ziggler to face Christian since Ziggler is still a heel. Move Rhodes up to face Sheamus since it would be nice to see if Rhodes can have a WHC caliber match.

I think eventually that would be a great match up but for now it makes more sense for Ziggler to get the shot. Too many things have changed already, don't need to change up the IC title match too.

either Vicky comes out and says she still wants Ziggler so she has gotten him a title match ORRRRRRR Have Flair return and say how much he loves Ziggler and if he stays with him he will get him the title match, Never going to happen.

I strangely want to see Rhodes lose to Christian and then come out and beat big white - Why not

obvious choice is ziggler after all the sheamus matches he's been having.

but i sort of don't like that idea of his momentum being squashed by sheamus. But maybe if the match is 18 secs he'll shoot to the moon...

It's a great time for the surprise return of Giant Gonzalez. What the WWE has been missing is air-brushed bodysuits with merkins.

Damn I didn't know that. I wouldn't have gone there had I know that.

ok how about Heavy Metal Van Hammer? P.N. News? Surely Battle Kat is still around

There isn't an obvious choice that they can go for with one week of buildup. But the fact that Ziggler has had a few matches with Sheamus recently makes him the most likely candidate.

ziggler lost every match he ever had with sheamus it wouldn't be really credible but then again EVERYTHING BETTER THAN DEL RIO:D

If they want a comedy match, then yes, that's possible I guess lol!

Its not ideal but things don't seem to be going the WWE's way ATM. Suspensions, injuries, etc. this point in time when some of the top names are out is a time for other guys to step up and prove their worth. Could also use Miz for the match, see if he can make his way back to the top. I see a tournament or battle roya happening on Raw to determine a new #1 contender.

That's probably the likely option. I'm interested to see how they explain why ADR is not in the match though, since I doubt that they'll take him off tv with so many top stars out.

id have dolph ziggler have himon the cuspe of winning it and have swagger and vickie blow it for him to further the storyline he has and have sheamus defend the title aswell

Ziggler seems the most likely choice and rightly so.

Mr. Ziggles
06-10-2012, 05:55 AM
I think they should go with The Miz, just to try and bring him back into the picture.

I don't know why they are so down on this guy with the roster as thin as it is surely you would want someone who can easily cut a promo to keep the fans active without wearing anyone down in a match.


Have a battle royal to decide replacement Miz wins that.

i say give it to kane, have another Bryan/Punk match before he can join that fray

Sheamus vs kane on smackdown was fairly watchable

Surprise return of Wade Barrett

Anyone! It would be a better match than would Del Rio would have put on.

I doubt that, Del Rio is boring!

Tommy Thunder

The fact that he's boring on the mic doesn't mean he's also a boring wrestler. He's one of the best in WWE as far as in-ring ability goes.

Didn't say he was just boring on the mic! :p I don't like any of his 1 v 1 matches I've seen.

Each to his own I suppose.
But as long as del Rio's around, more Ricardo Rodriguez, so I don't think we can complain too much :p

Of course! I find Rodriguez very entertaining, maybe get him against Sheamus! :D

I was thinking they would simply say he is injured but he didn't have a match to get injured in recently. They'll probably do what they did to Christian before Mania and have him ina match where he gets taken out or even taken out backstage. Im pulling for Ryback to squash him :P

Offer the WHC shot to Kelly Kelly. Sheamus vs KK would probably be the only match involving a diva that I would watch.

I think they should go with Ziggler if Del Rio (hopefully) can't do the ppv.

Sheamus won't be dropping the belt, so why not put Ziggler and Swagger in the match and make it triple threat. Zig/Swag could end up costing each other the match so they can finally split the 2.

I hope and pray it's The Miz, simply because I think he deserves it, but it's highly unlikely.

I expect either Ziggler or Tensai, leaning towards Ziggler, simply because they've wrestled for the past couple weeks.

Frankly, I think anyone else other than Del Rio is better. It sucks Del Rio is injured, but as a wrestler, Del Rio doesn't impress me

I've just had a horrid thought - what would be planned for John Cena after No Way Out?

Mr. Ziggles

Dont want Ziggler to be used in a PPV main event as a last minute replacement I want him to be there for real, during a meaningful fued.

If Del Rio gets replaced it will be Tensai taking his spot.

This.

Sheamus is currently in a feud with Laurinaitis- sort of. Tensai is Laurinaitis' hand picked guy. And Tensai hasn't been booked for No Way Out yet.
