WWE Monday Night Raw is broadcasting live from the Greensboro Coliseum tonight. Ahead of the big event, FOX8’s Julie Grant sat down with WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler for an exclusive interview. The former two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion dreamed of becoming a WWE superstar from the time he was five years old. He wrestled as a child and became a standout and record-setter in both high school and college. While studying at Kent State University, Ziggler became fluent in sign language. He also was accepted into law school.
Ziggler’s exceptional talent in the ring has launched his career to the big screen. He is currently starring in the new action thriller “Countdown.’ Ziggler even performed some of his own stunts in the film. When he is not traveling with WWE, Ziggler can usually be found doing stand-up comedy. Watch the interview with Dolph Ziggler to find out more, including what inspires him most and the best piece of advice he ever received.
Dolph Ziggler has had his share of confrontations with WWE Superstars over the years. His feud with Rusev just ended, and now it appears Tyler Breeze is next in line. Breeze, who spent time in the WWE NXT developmental system, has moved up to the main roster and started to get into Ziggler’s business via sneak attack.
“You come up, want to make a name for yourself, I get it,” Ziggler said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “I know he’s good. He’s got some flash.”
Ziggler and Breeze, who has Summer Rae as his valet now, had some encounters prior to last Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view in Atlanta. In their first official match, Breeze made the most of his moment in the spotlight and defeated Ziggler with his “Unprettier” signature move. Breeze is quite flamboyant as he has an iPhone with him as he makes his way to the ring, posing and taking selfies to get into his opponent’s head and fire up the fans.
The two had a rematch of sorts Monday night on RAW in Nashville, but in a tag team setting. Ziggler, known as The Showoff, and Dean Ambrose met Breeze and Kevin Owens. Late in the match, Owens and Ziggler went at it outside the ring and Ambrose hit his Dirty Deeds move on Breeze to get the win. The expected Ziggler-Breeze rivalry should heat up this weekend at live shows in Kansas City and Huntington. The WWE Live Holiday Tour’s Sunday show at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena starts at 5 p.m. Tickets range from $18 to $103 and are available at the box office or at Ticketmaster.com. Sheamus, who won the World Heavyweight title at Survivor Series, is on the card along with other Superstars and Divas.
Ziggler, who is from Cleveland and who wrestled at Kent State, is 35 now and often gets asked for advice from Superstars on the rise. He’s fine with that even if it’s Breeze, who’s known as Prince Pretty. “I did the same thing,” said Ziggler, who made his pro debut in 2004. “All wrestlers want to advance. If they ask for advice I give it. I want to help. I love it.” Continue reading
