The weight of words matters, and Dolph Ziggler may just find that out the hard way. After perennially targeting Kalisto and his good friend Apollo Crews for weeks on SmackDown LIVE, and then boasting about his antics, The Showoff will take on both Superstars in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match at Elimination Chamber 2017.
Following his shocking betrayal of Kalisto on Jan. 10, Ziggler has waged several aggressive attacks against Kalisto and Crews individually, each time with the other Superstar coming to his friend’s aid. No help could be found on the Feb. 7 edition of SmackDown LIVE, however, when both Kalisto and Crews felt the wrath of a steel chair from Ziggler.
Then Ziggler, as he is prone to do, talked himself into a corner, telling SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan that he could defeat both Kalisto and Crews straight-up. With Team Blue being the land of opportunity, Bryan gave Ziggler just that chance, scheduling him for a 2-on-1 Handicap Match this Sunday.
Will The Showoff be able to back up his words and defeat two of SmackDown LIVE’s most promising talents in one fell swoop? Or, will the numbers game, in conjunction with the immense talent of Crews and Kalisto, result in a loss for Ziggler?”
Prediction: WWE is really trying here, continuingly trying to push a “Heel” turned Ziggler down everyone’s throats despite the man being such a huge fan favourite, however, this match does come with its problems.
If Ziggler wins and wins cleanly, he will bury the careers of Kalisto and Apollo Crews, there’s no getting around it, for being such a big lad, Crews should dominate, with Kalisto at his side there should only be one winner here or rather in this case two.
So who wants to bet that despite the numbers advantage, Crews and Kalisto lose because I’m picking Ziggler here
