Proving the World Wrong
By Graham "GSM" Matthews
April 8, 2013. We are quickly coming up on the two year anniversary of the night the WWE Universe saw an emergence of a true star when Dolph Ziggler cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the World Heavyweight Championship. It was a monumental moment that we all waited so long for, but in the end, it was worth the wait. It sent the the crowd in the Izod Center into a craze, exploding with excitement as Ziggler clinched the prestigious prize and celebrated his huge victory. Aftermath aside, it was truly an incredible moment in time that epitomized reaching the mountaintop and achieving ultimate success.
Dolph Ziggler winning the world title that night may have been "fake"; I mean, wrestling is scripted, isn't it? But make no mistake about it: Ziggler's story of overcoming the odds and doing what no one thought he could is very much real. I don't often incorporate wrestling into my "Injection of Inspiration" posts, but one of the reasons why I love wrestling as much as I do is because of the stories told. Yes, wrestling can be seen as escape from the realm of reality and in many ways it is, but some of the stories told are realistic, only turned up to the tenth degree.
