Mizdow vs Dolph Ziggler and R-Ziggler

As stupid as it is, I have to admit that Damien Sandow as The Miz's stunt double has been pretty funny.  The funny was ramped up on SmackDown when Dolph Ziggler brought someone in to even the score.  That person was none other than R-Ziggler.

I know that this type of shenanigans isn't everyone's cup of tea, but to me it's stupid, harmless fun.  Not all wrestling needs to resemble Mid-South Wrestling, you know what I mean?  I'm all for a more serious tone with the product, but there's room for this as well.  I was lukewarm on The Miz as a Hollywood-type heel, but the addition of his stunt double, Damien Sandow has taken that deal to the next level.  Personally, I'm not a huge fan of how Sandow has been used in general, but he's make chicken salad out of chick *bleep* and has been really entertaining.  R-Truth is another guy who is really underrated in a lot of ways.  He's definitely got a place on the roster if for no other reason he's a guy that gets the crowd hyped up when he shows up.  He also has excellent range as demonstrated with his heel run against Cena alongside The Miz from a while back.  Lastly, it seems like Ziggler might finally be heading back up the card to some degree.  He's a talented dude and that's good to see as well.

For some reason I just got a kick out of this whole thing.  It got me thinking about how much potential these four guys have.  Hopefully, they will all be treated better now than they have been for the last little while.  Even if not, they are doing some entertaining work now.  That's enough for me as a fan.
