With such a surplus of talent in WWE at the moment, not every incredible athlete is going to be utilized properly from the get-go. That said, it is much likelier someone straight out of NXT will be pushed ahead of someone who has been treading water on the main roster for years, such as Dolph Ziggler.
The 'Showoff' has been a part of the WWE machine for over a decade, debuting as Chavo Guerrero's caddy in 2005 before being re-branded as The Spirit Squad's Nicky and later Dolph Ziggler in 2008. Since then, he has been known for his many start-and-stop pushes and coming close to breaking that proverbial glass ceiling but falling short each time.
This past year has been no different than any other for Ziggler, who has wrestled in pay-per-view main events and been left off shows all together. In fact, he has been conspicuous by his absence as of late on WWE TV, leading to speculation that he could be on his way out of WWE.
Then again, this has been heavily rumored for well over a year, and if the following ten signs are any indication, Ziggler's days in WWE are surely numbered.
