    Miz wasn't going anywhere, but Ziggler has been rumored for New Japan Wrestling & Ring Of Honor Wrestling. New Japan, in particular, is really making strides in the wrestling world.

    I was wondering if there was a new league or something forming. Thanks.

    Those two are the closest thing to being threats to WWE, although both have a ways to go.

    The major advantage they have over WWE is a significantly reduced work rate. WWE requires something like 250 days a year for a full-time worker. The pay is higher, but the travel is pretty brutal.

    Finn Balor, A.J. Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, & a handful of others were recently plucked by WWE from New Japan.

    WWE destroyed is career, and then resigns him. Just dumb.

    As long as they can keep Strowman smashing violens/guitars over people's backs, then we are good

    Ziggler has had some accolades. 2 time World Champion, 1 time US Champ, 5 or 6 IC title reigns, multiple tag titles. However, he could have been a huge star but anytime he has gotten momentum he gets buried. Could have been a Shawn Michaels type star.

    Anyone ever think of "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig when watching Zigglar? I do every time. "Perfect" was the better wrestler(though Dolph is good). I think the look is very similar. I do believe that Hennig was a big influence for Zig when he was first starting out.

    I'm not a huge Ziggler fan, although he is talented in the ring. But I think Perfect blows him out of the water in terms of character and personality.
