Cody Rhodes is a prime example of someone who left WWE and reached even greater levels of success on his own terms on the independent scene.
While working for WWE is the dream of most professional wrestlers, there are a lot of performers who we think have more potential in other promotions.
Here are 5 WWE superstars who I think would benefit from working elsewhere:
Recent reports have suggested that Dolph Ziggler isn’t content in his current role at WWE. Having introduced Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode to the main roster with opening feuds that have seen him on the losing end overall, Dolph isn’t exactly progressing towards significant title opportunities that he was accustomed to previously in his career.
His current entrance, with no music, sums up his entire direction and drive at the moment: there is none! I don’t believe that this is due to him personally, but how he is being used within the company. The perfect example is his absence from this month’s Survivor Series PPV.
The plan for Dolph Ziggler should be to leave WWE, re-invent himself having toured other companies, and return to WWE a new man!
