• Backstage News On Dolph Ziggler Turning Babyface On RAW
In the main event of this week’s RAW, United States Champion Bobby Lashley & Riddle defeated Mr. Money In The Bank Theory & Seth Rollins with some help from Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler turned babyface by laying out Theory with a Superkick.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE brought back Ziggler as a babyface so he can put over Theory and make the 24-year-old superstar look like a threat as a heel, as WWE Officials obviously have big plans for Theory:
“I think they just want him running around with Austin Theory at shows every night for a couple nights a week, every week for a while because they’re bound and determined to make Austin Theory into something. He’s a good guy to bring back for that.
I think they have the mentality that whatever they’re going to do with Theory down the line allows them to beat him all the time right now, which almost makes you think that maybe he will cash-in successfully at some point.”
