I came so, so close to liking Dolph Ziggler this week. He was on guest commentary during Kevin Owens' match against Kalisto. Much as I am in despair over Owens being relegated to joining Ziggler in his eternal purgatory after having dynamite interactions with both AJ Styles and Sami Zayn at the Royal Rumble, Ziggler sold the hell out of a feud between the two of them. He talked up Owens as a fierce competitor and expressed frustration over constantly losing to him. He managed to convey that beating Owens would really mean something to him, even though their feud is based on pretty much nothing and would achieve pretty much nothing in the grand scheme of things. But Dolph Ziggler cannot help ruining things, and even though he also supported Kalisto and was enthusiastic about his performance, it was in a super condescending tone. He even kept referring to Kalisto as “kid.” Dude. Seriously. However, it was nice to see Kalisto get another win, and the match was a ton of fun. Owens just launching Kalisto directly into Ziggler and then superkicking him was probably my favourite part of this entire week, let alone this episode.
