Batista Slams WWE's Use Of Dolph Ziggler

Ever since Batista left the WWE in 2014, the future Hall of Famer has wasted no time in bashing the current product and its treatment of current talents - namely Titus O'Neil and now Dolph Ziggler.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet tweeted out a photo that shows the resemblance between Ziggler and "Hansel," a character portrayed by Owen Wilson in the popular comedy film, Zoolander.

Batista replied to Satin and took a shot at WWE, saying they "misused" his talents:

Batista hasn't held back in lashing out at WWE in recent years. Speaking to TMZ Sports, he told Vince McMahon he "f**ked up," in suspending O'Neil. On top of that, The Animal expressed frustration when WWE failed to follow up talks with him and Ronda Rousey teaming up at WrestleMania 34.

The 37-year-old Ziggler has won both the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships twice apiece, along with five Intercontinental titles. However, the creative team has come up with plenty of strange and failed storylines with Ziggler, who went from a talent on the rise to a mid-card guy who's seen plenty of character and gimmick changes.

Last year, Ziggler was taken off of television to be "repackaged." When he returned, Ziggler was simply just re-enacting the entrances of WWE legends that belonged to the likes of John Cena and The Undertaker.

Ziggler then captured the United States Championship at Clash of Champions, only to walk out of SmackDown Live, relinquishing the title and telling the WWE Universe that they didn't deserve it. He returned at the Royal Rumble and has since formed a tag team with Drew McIntyre.

Ziggler has opened about in the past about his frustrations with WWE, and his contract situation is unclear at this time. The 37-year-old has been a strong team player and does what he's been asked. But you can't help but wonder if Ziggler may decide he's had enough, and if he opts to take his talents to another promotion in the future.
