What was the point putting The US Title on Dolph Ziggler?

I wondered the same thing when they did it at the PPV.  I like Dolph, but he was not exactly a hot act.  I didn't see it as helping him to have him win the Title, it seemed more like it made the belt colder. 

Why did they then have him vacate the Title afterward?

I have nothing for that, I really don't.

Was it more about taking it off of Baron Corbin?

When you consider the fact that he lost in the first round of the tournament to Bobby Roode, you may be onto something.

Why was Jinder Mahal in the tournament and why did they have a former World Champion have to work so hard to beat Tye Dillinger?

I think they are saying that Jinder's role at the top of the card is over and he is going to be moved to the mid-card?

One last question, why wasn't Shinsuke Nakamure put in the tournament?

My hope is that it means Nakamura is about to get his chance in the World Title picture.  I would love to see him and AJ Styles tear down the house at WrestleMania.
