Moves Like Swagger

Lots of potential... (from WWE)

I didn't realize it until today, but I haven't blogged in nearly week. For those of you who read this regularly, I apologize for the lack of content. This has been a busy month as I've kept up more with the YouTube channel and the Video a Day in the Month of May challenge that I put on myself.

Anyway, enough of that, let's talk wrestling. I was really disappointed Sunday night that Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler came up short in their bid for the WWE tag team titles. The lose bothered me for two reasons, as I had them picked in the From the Rafters Radio PPV pick contest. But more importantly I think it's a sign that a talented duo is being misused by the WWE.

Ideally, I'd like to see Dolph and Jack on their own, pursuing singles titles, but let's face it, the title situations are crowded and the tag team division is less than stellar. I think these two former world champions work well together and bring something to the fledgling division. I just can not buy into Kofi Kingston and R-Truth as a tag team, let alone as the tag team champions. This is not a knock against either man, as I enjoy them as singles competitors. Here's to hoping that Epico and Primo get back into contention now that they're a part of AW.

But back to the subject at hand, I still don't understand why Swagger and Ziggler seem to be enhancement talent these days. Swagger is probably the fastest falling former World champion and Ziggler is that guy who is so good, the company just doesn't seem to know what to do with him. He makes his opponents look good, so maybe that's why he seems to be stuck in this current mode. No matter the reason, here's to hoping the second half of 2012 is better for Ziggler and Swagger whether they continue on as a team or pursue singles careers.
