Everything That’s Wrong With The Dolph Ziggler/Lana/Rusev Storyline – The Armbar Express
Dolph Ziggler-Lana Pairing Will Be Mutually Beneficial for Superstar, an on- screen relationship between the two that will ultimately prove. We all know the type, or have battled the type when in long relationships that went GOD!!! I couldn't agree more this. Ziggler (& Lana) come off as the heels in. Why not have Lana and Dolph Ziggler cut the promo about the match at the start of the show? They can talk about their relationship and making.
After that, Summer comes out and Ziggler is seen with his towel on in his locker room. We then hear from Summer Rae as she does her interview about the incident with Ziggler. Lana is asked about this interview by Renee Young but she walks off.
Ziggler then tries to explain what happened to Lana but she leaves the building sad and upset. This would leave Ziggler all alone to go up against Rusev. Without Lana at ringside, Rusev beats him in the middle. Even IF they tweaked the timing of the angles, I still probably would have hated it!
However, I am not a casual wrestling fan. If you want to get a soap opera storyline over with the casual fan base, you have to at least have it make SENSE.
The writers build up to that point. Dolph Ziggler and Lana have the hardest jobs in the world to try and convince everyone that they ARE in fact in a relationship. How do you convince the WWE Universe that you are in love with this girl when her kayfabe ex-boyfriend Rusev IS her real life boyfriend?
I give Lana and Dolph Ziggler all the credit in the world. WWE have to constantly try to force this relationship upon you in the most cheesiest of ways.

The Instagram photos of Ziggler and Lana kissing in Disneyland was mentioned so much during this show! However, I feel that the person that gets the most sympathy from me… is Rusev.
This lad was a cold-hearted destructive Russian power house.

However, what this storyline has reduced Rusev to is a heart-broken, sensitive ex-boyfriend. How do you not feel sympathetic for him in this situation?

However, Lana was over his relationship with Rusev… in an hour. An hour after Rusev broke up with her, she kissed Dolph Ziggler! How does Rusev get credibility back as this dominating monster? Considering that WWE has now exposed Rusev as a man with exploitable weaknesses and emotional feelings, it has taken away the fear of the mighty Rusev that made him such a force to be reckoned with in !
Especially with Show-Off Schnauzers. By the way, my favorite part of the TMZ story was the final sentence.
Maybe darken his character a bit as he headed into, hopefully, a lengthy program with Cena. But his backstage reaction video was all "Yeah, well, I'm happy for her.
It was a losing effort, of course, though all those rumors about Cena taking a month or more off come November did give this match some extra zest. As in just maybe Ziggler will take the belt here. Again, I hope it's not over between the two of them.

It was a competitive match, for sure, but they still didn't fully address the "Ziggler accidentally super kicked Cena" moment. Plus, Ziggler raked Cena's eyes at one moment, leading to a hell of a near fall after a kick. The whole Owens eye-rake thing has now sort of re-built eye play as being dastardly.
Despite the fact hat Orton pokes people in the eye all the time. And Undertaker just flat out boots people in the ol' nardbag.

Also, a couple in the crowd got engaged during the match and Cena called them out. Everywhere Ziggler goes, he's surrounded by people getting married. In several ways, actually. So is there any new info on this alleged "time off" that Cena's taking? Well, a new report says that he's actually doing it because he's filming a fitness-themed reality show for FOX.
Which would be interesting if true since it would really be the first time Cena's branched out in this fashion from WWE. I mean, he's done film stuff - for WWE and outside, like Trainwreck. And guest TV spots.“Miz TV” welcomes Summer Rae, Dolph Ziggler and Lana: SmackDown, Sept. 3, 2015
But nothing that really capitalizes on himself as a brand. And nothing that takes him away for as long as this show might. Even all the Marine-y movies he makes are done in a few weeks' time. And he usually flies in for RAWs anyhow. Bayley, the Authority misses RAW, and more
