WWE.com interview


Ziggler takes part in a sit down interview with WWE.com to discuss his regaining the WWE Intercontinental Championship at TLC.

I knew, I KNEW if I could get my hands back on that Intercontinental Championship and make it mean to them (the WWE fans) what it means to me, I knew that it would just start a rebirth for the Intercontinental title.

WWE.com interview


Ziggler talks to WWE.com about his recent push in WWE and the dedication he puts into his craft.

Nobody works harder than me in the ring, no one steals the show more often and no one gets better reactions for a guy who’s not even part of huge storylines. People can pick and choose what they want out of it, but I feel like I’m a modern day Renaissance man of anything you could want me to do … except be six inches taller.

Talk is Jericho interview


Ziggler is a guest on Talk is Jericho to discuss his ring name, The Spirit Squad gimmick and Kenny Dykstra.

He (Dykstra) came to OVW when he was 18 or 19 and he was showing me stuff and teaching me behind the scenes things that you don’t learn until you’re 35. I learned a lot from tagging with him.

WWE.com interview


Ziggler talks to WWE.com about pranking The Big Show as part of the site’s Greatest Pranks series.

Long time ago, in The Spirit Squad, we had a rivalry going with Big Show & Kane. We used a Subway sandwich, a six-inch cold-cut combo, left it in the middle of the ring and used a microphone cord to make a giant loop, almost how you would catch something in a cartoon. Like, you have to catch it in a rope. So we made a giant loop, put the sandwich in the middle trying to catch him, and thought it would be funny if maybe we caught (Big Show), and we’d all go pull the rope and we’d fall down like a ‘Three Stooges” bit. Long story short: He grabbed the sandwich, fell for the trick and we caught him.

Ziggler – Miz Intercontinental championship

Wins Sport Event

Ziggler defeats The Miz at Summerslam to capture the Intercontinental championship. Miz:

When you step in the ring with someone like Dolph Ziggler, he’s fast, he’s quick, he’s a technical master in the ring. He was Kent State University’s most-winning wrestler. I know these days, because I’ve studied his moves inside and out. I know every weakness that he could possibly throw at me. But it’s just one of those situations where you really want to go into SummerSlam, and you really want to be remembered.

The Democrat Tribune interview


Ziggler talks to The Democrat Tribune about motivation and character development.

There are days when you don’t feel good, you may be a little banged up or you’ve had 10 flight delays in the same day. If I was a fan sitting in the audience, I’d be disappointed if a top star didn’t wrestle.

CBS-19 interview


Ziggler talks to CBS-19 about The Spirit Squad and WWE under-utilizing talent.

There’s a million guys that don’t always get the spotlight… I’ve worked 100 jobs in my life and I’ve never been with more hard working people that aren’t just in it for themselves, they’re in it for the fans and for the respect of their peers.

NOLA.com interview


Ziggler talks to NOLA.com about Wrestlemania.

Shawn Michaels vs. the Undertaker at WrestleMania XXV (won by the Undertaker). They could have just had a good match, and we would all still be talking about it. But they went out and had one of the best storytelling matches of all-time. I went into the crowd and just watched it

XFinity interview


Ziggler talks to XFinity about cashing in his Money in the Bank title shot.

You know, I’ve seen it before where it wasn’t exactly quite how I wanted it yet, so I can’t guarantee that’s going to happen. Cause when I cash this in, I’m not cashing it in to maybe win. It’s going to happen. So, somebody has to be out pretty cold for me to get back in there.

Comcast interview


Ziggler talks to Comcast part time wrestlers headlining Wrestlemania instead of full-time wrestlers.

It really pisses me off. But, it also is good business. Every year a part timer comes back, but there’s a reason that they’re back. Whether it’s the fans want to see them, if they’re a draw, if they’re a movie star, there’s a reason that they’re back. They’re not back just to do it. There’s business to be had. And it pisses me off and it motivates me a hundred percent. It makes me want to be that guy that they’re begging to come back.

Sydney Morning Herald interview


Ziggler discusses his WWE character and fans with The Sydney Morning Herald.

I love doing this, so it’s a character but it’s also me. I really enjoy entertaining and we have people who are getting cheered and doing the right thing, but I’m not a nice guy in person so I enjoy capitalizing on that. I don’t instantly hate everyone who’s a good guy but when I back it up, it makes people that much angrier.

The Art of Wrestling interview


Ziggler is a guest on The Art of Wrestling to discuss wrestling names and Ric Flair.

I was going by Nic without a “K” at the end. I’d wear a shirt with no “K” but then the banner on the screen would read Nick with a “K”. It was an homage to Ric Flair. I’m a huge Flair fan so obviously, it was a bit of a tribute to him.
