I'd feel bad that when he was over 5-6 years ago they wasted him/punished him. But he hasn't done anything interesting in years and is not a noticibly better worker/talker. Add to that he did get a decent amount of tv airtime in his tag team with Mojo Rawley that wen't over as much of an offer of chilli beans to someone who wants to avoid farting. TBH I am not sure what WWE see's in keeping guys like him The Colons,Ziggler etc employed. I don't like to see anyone lose a job but I am not sure I understand their modern business model of having 10-12 Rene Goulet's-Jim Powers on hold
He's in the right spot. He doesn't offer anything that isn't already done better by those being used, however badly.
I disagree, and I'm not even really a fan of the dude. What he offers better than some of those being used is the fact that he's undeniably more over than some of em. There's not really an excuse not to have the guy in some sort of featured role in at least a tag team or whatever.

It’s not 2011 anymore he’s not the internet flavor of the month anymore wwe doesn’t like to be forced into anything they saw him in a certain spot then he started getting over with his web show they eventually started pushing him on tv and the fans really didn’t care and he didn’t deliver he wasn’t a good promo or that great in the ring if your gonna try and force wwe’s hand at pushing you and then you don’t deliver and the crowd don’t care that’s death for your career.It’s almost 2019 that’s almost a decade since he supposedly got “over” he’s scorched earth and it would be a waste of tv to push him when you have so much talent on roster.

There's no reason for Zack to not be some kind of undercard face act who serves to give some good, fun nothing of a match. In other eras we had guys like that. He doesn't need to be pushed or treated like a top guy for them to do something with him and it's a sign of how terrible they've become at putting the show together that the spot he should be occupying just doesn't exist anymore.
I really have no clue why they won't give Ryder some kind of midcard prominence. He's still generally decently over and he's just gotten better as a performer over time. I'm not saying give him the WWE title but he sure as hell more warrants screentime than, like, a Baron Corbin.
Exactly. I'll never understand the Ryder hate. Maybe I'm just less picky than others, but I think he's a fun character and good enough in the ring. It's also remarkable just how over he's stayed all this time.
He’s very much like Ziggler just with zero push they complain a lot about how their not being used properly yet they sign a contract the second it’s offered so it’s hard to feel bad for them no one is forcing them to sign these contracts they could not sign and go someplace else and prove they deserved better but that’s hard and not as fun as complaining.
Ziggler's just phoning it in for the money. I'm sure he's saving it for his (soon to fail) comedy career or as a squawker at a cable news outlet.
I’ve never been a fan of the guy nor got the hype about him at the time but if Jinder Mahal is handed the WWE title of all things, surely a decent hand who’s over can get even some regular TV time.
Yeah I'm the same way. I honestly can't stand the dude at all, he's my Dolph Ziggler, but there's no denying he got himself over and was way ahead of the curve with YouTube before his bad acting and bad booking knocked him down.
Guy still gets a pop to this day, and the crowd chant with him so yeah, give him something at least. I'll still fast forward it, but he definitely earned more than the nothing he's given.
