PLAYERS: Dolph Ziggler
As we’ve been reporting, Dolph Ziggler appears to have heat on him backstage and is being punished for something he said during an interview during SummerSlam week. It’s unknown what it was or what he said. This shouldn’t be confused with an interview he did in Cleveland before a live event, even though he posted on Twitter that he was “in trouble” for it. That interview (and the tweet) were both in-character and took place long after SummerSlam. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.

WWE Smackdown Reaction and Review – September 6th, 2013

The opening segment was a mixed bag. On the one hand, I thought Triple H was very entertaining, and liked the “town meeting” set-up for a televised wrestling show. It’s the exact kind of thing a narcissistic heel would do. Also, having Hunter describe himself as the COO of WWE and, therefore, “the WWE itself,” was a great way to draw heat. Unfortunately, some of the booking...
