Sometimes, WWE creative can absolutely beat an idea into the ground. The return of The Spirit Squad was a fun and creative little idea to help build towards Dolph Ziggler’s match with The Miz at “No Mercy” earlier this month for the Intercontinental title.
However, Ziggler won the IC title and now is the time for WWE to build him as a top face on SmackDown and give him the push that he hasn’t had in his career. By WWE logic that means that he’s going to continue feuding with The Miz and The Spirit Squad.
I’m not sure why The Spirit Squad are still hanging around in this feud between Miz and Ziggler. The Miz just had a great run with the IC title and needs to prove his worth against Ziggler to get it back. Dolph Ziggler needs to get off to a great start as IC Champ.
How are two grown men aged by a decade in cheerleader outfits going to help either man accomplish their goals? They’re distracting and stopping Miz vs. Ziggler from being the feud it should be. They’re unnecessary here. Let the work in the ring tell the story.
Do you think The Spirit Squad are getting in the way of the Miz/Ziggler feud?
