WWE’s Original Plans for Ziggler and Flair, Backstage Talk About RAW

Posted by Matt Boone January 24, 2013 5 Comments

- There was a lot of backstage talk about Monday’s RAW this week. It was acknowledged that the promos by CM Punk, Paul Heyman and The Rock were all very good to build up the Royal Rumble but besides that, the feeling was that the show sucked. As noted, lots of people were talking about how bad John Cena’s promo was.

– The current storyline where The Miz is being pushed as the “next Ric Flair” was originally earmarked for Dolph Ziggler. With Ziggler, the idea was going to be more of Flair being his manager but Ziggler was going to be given the Figure Four and doing the same gimmick Miz is doing as a babyface.

Regarding turning Ziggler babyface, it looks like those plans have been put on hold for the time being.

      Finally something worth noting. The WWE finally takes Cena out of the spotlight for just a second and realize he is doing shitty work… Turn him heel and let him be the Dr. of Thuganomics (you know, the gimmick that got him to the top)

      Ziggler and flair would have been great. Give him the figure four and the robe. Bring in the Rhodes scholars for support. Then bring in henning for added muscle. Could have been special.

        I loved that idea man! It could have been something great. Henning is way to good to be in the spot he is at right now. Though he is on superstars, NXT and wrestles regularly on live-shows, he deserves the spotlight. Flair could make gold out of those two, just the way he did with Orton, Batista and Triple H.
