At the 5/5 Raw in Knoxville, Tennessee - Dolph Ziggler reportedly came out and cut a pretty stellar promo. At this time, he introduced Mason Ryan as an 'extra insurance policy' and promised he would never lose again with this added insurance. - ProWrestling.net
Is this an idea Creative could be flirting with to introduce on Raw? I for one would love it. I think Dolph desperately needs to get out of this Bermuda Triangle with Swagger and Vickie. I call it that, because now that he's landed there, there is seemingly no way out. Even worse, no one seems to be able to find him. He's been lost in this awkward stable for nearly a year now. Dolph truly is a show-stealer, and a future main eventer. I could type until my hands are sore about all of the attributes he has to catapult to the main event scene, but I'll refrain. I would just like to give my 2 cents about why I think adding Mason Ryan behind Dolph would do wonders.
In past and recent history, having a dominant big man behind a smaller, but highly talented wrestler... just flat out works. Del Rio had Brodus, Miz had Alex Riley. and dare I say it, HBK had Diesel. Hell, I'll be willing to argue that aside from that last one, Zigs and Ryan would be physically the most impressive duo of all - strength, freakish definition, swagger, and style.
Yes, behind every great man is a great woman. And yes, Vickie has been and is great in her role. But, she has taken Ziggler as far as she can take him. She is no longer helping him week in and week out, she's making him obsolete. If Ziggler had to go up against Cena, would you think he had a better chance of winning with Vickie in his corner, or a 295 pound, stud, monster? The reason Miz's feuds with Orton and Cena seemed somewhat believable, was because Riley was always there to give him that edge. Vickie helped my favorite #Heel climb to the upper mid card - I think Mason Ryan, Dolph's Diesel - would provide that final element to giving him the full shove into main event glory. Not to mention, you might just make Mason Ryan all the more credible star in the process, with all the main event exposure he'd see. Dolph's already incredible, Mason makes him credible - a believable, vindicated main eventer. I really hope it happens, because, "I am so damn sick, of seeing Dolph be soo damn sick" and stuck losing to a Funkasaurus.
Thoughts my brothas?
