A former member of The Spirit Squad recently took to Twitter, in response to a question from a fan. The current WWE Smackdown Superstar, and one-half of the reigning Smackdown Champions, Dolph Ziggler, talked about thinking an angle with D-X signaled his firing. Dolph, who competed under the ring name “Nicky”, was asked if he thought he would become a “singles wrestler”, during his time with the group of male cheerleaders. Dolph told the fan:
No. when dx stuffed us in a box & we were taken off tv, I assumed I was fired https://t.co/vmQirfnLC8

Dolph held on to his job, and has gone on to become a WWE Triple Crown Champion.
