The goal of Dolph Ziggler’s current gimmick is to be Daniel Bryan-lite. Which is to say, an insanely talented athlete who defies the odds in a genuine way. So while you may feel like he’s getting buried or just serving as the punching bag for the Authority, understand THAT’S THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT YOU MORONS.
Though, they should probably avoid having Big Show pretending to be hurt after just running down the ramp to make sure Dolph was okay. Of course, even giants are still human, but considering that he was essentially unharmed and tried throwing the big part of the stairs — which, it seemed like Mark Henry accidentally brought into the ring instead of the more manageable top step — “pained expression” should probably be replaced with “smoldering anger”.
