    You may have noticed, Dolph Ziggler isn't wearing pink in his ring attire since John Cena's new "Rise Above Cancer" shirt was released.


    WWE Shop has Ziggler's pink shirt marked at 40% off right now.


    The article does not say for fact that Cena's new merchandise is leading to the phasing out of Zigglers awesome "It's not showing off, if you back it up shirt." However, the article does allude to it, and the supporting evidence are a little alarming.

    It's nothing new.


    That happened with Truth and DX with the camo stuff. He actually had to stop wearing it.

    That sucks.I don't like it at all. If WWE's goal is to make money, why would they stop the sale of a highly successful product (Ziggler's shirt. Look in the audience at a WWE event. Ziggler's shirt is everywhere.) to push another? It defies the capitalistic nature of American businesses.

    I don't like it either. His pink shirt was different. It wasn't the same old basic black.


    Bring that shirt back WWE!

    But...Cena's pink is in support of breast cancer charities, so couldn't they say Dolph's was too? I get Cena being the figurehead of this, but does that really mean that no one else on the roster can, to the point that they actively stop them from wearing pink when they did anyway? Not cool.

    It's horrible. For a good cause like Cancer, having two stars with pink shirts isn't going to hurt. It would help a lot, actually. In fact, I know Ziggler is supposed to be a heel, but even bad guys can care about issues. Why not have Ziggler support the fight and say the shirt he wears tells the world how good he is while helping to support the fight? It might be a bit of a tweener thing, but still, not all bad people are pure evil. WWE needs to stop type-casting.

    That's the same thing I was thinking.

    It all comes down to Cena's image. Some people would argue that it's more than that, I disagree. It's as simple as WWE storylines. Cena must be perfect at the risk of the company coming across as petty and ...STUPID!

    BTW, Randy Orton has partnered with Susan G. Komen's cause. So has Sheamus, Punk, and a bunch of other superstars, but we're not supposed to know that guys, so keep it hush hush.
