Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight title win was not a result of WWE re-writing Monday’s episode of Raw according to PWInsider.

Multiple sources confirmed that the plan for several weeks was for Ziggler to cash in and win the WWE World title the day after WrestleMania. This was one of the reasons Ziggler had been losing so many matches, with the belief being it would create interest in those talents chasing him for the belt since “they can beat him.”

Original plans called for Jack Swagger to carry the title however they fizzled quickly following his DUI arrest.
