Smackdown Live: Results and Photos for September 5th, 2017

Dolph Ziggler comes out to the stage and he has a mic. Dolph says all of you here tonight and the WWE Universe have no appreciation for what he can do in the ring. You would rather sit on your hands and sit unsatisfied with the greatest performer in WWE history in front of you. Shame on all of you. You don’t want him. You would rather have some dumb gimmick.

Dolph goes to the back. John Cena’s music plays and Dolph Ziggler comes out wearing a John Cena hat. Dolph asks if that worked for you. You saw right through that. How about some nostalgia. Dolph goes to the back and . . . Randy Savage’s music plays. Dolph asks if you are not buying that because you usually buy that nostalgia crap.

Dolph asks for the lights to be turned down. Naomi’s music plays and Dolph comes out with a Naomi glowing wig. Dolph asks if this is what has come to. Anyone can do what he just did. Anybody. No one can what he does in that ring. Since you couldn’t care less, Dolph says he doesn’t give a damn about you. You all make him sick.

Backstage: We go to the interview area and Dolph Ziggler is there. Dolph is asked about the new side of him that he was going to reveal. He says we are in Little Rock so you can expect nothing. He is asked what has motivated his desire for change. He says being the best athlete in Sports Entertainment but having nothing to show in ten years. He says he is a star. People get distracted by twinkling lights, sequinned jackets, and the John Cena hand gesture.

Dolph asks if you want to see him playing a guitar or riding a motorcyle to the ring. He can get on a dumb four wheeler like Stone Cold and he can spill beers on himself. He can have paint poured on him and ignore that he is a charisma vaccum. He can have a beautiful woman escort him to the ring. He can be a superhero. If you want all flash and no substance, you will get that next week.

Backstage: Dasha welcomes back the returning Dolph Ziggler. He is asked what are we to expect from Dolph Ziggler. He says he is excited to reestablish himself in a…backstage segment. He says he was watching a lot of Raw and Smackdown. He has unlocked the key to what it takes to be a star in WWE. He says he is going to start singing. He is going to play the guitar. He will rap. He will dance around like an idiot. He says he will have a single spotlight and lasers. He will have a big fancy robe. He will have beautiful women escort him to the ring, not any woman, but a woman who glows in the dark. Dolph says that is what he plans on doing…next week.

People Talking Sports: How Ric Flair Influenced Dolph Ziggler’s Career


Sports Illustrated: An Appreciation Of Ric Flair, By Dolph Ziggler

WWE Hall of Famer, Ric Flair, is facing a serious health battle, and his manager has asked for prayers and positive energy. Longtime WWE superstar, Dolph Ziggler, is taking care of the “positive energy” part with this first-person story on what the Nature Boy has meant to him and the wrestling business throughout Flair’s illustrious career.

I was lucky to be in the ring with Ric for the first time 12 years ago and I was just as lucky to be in a room with him a few weeks ago. I know what he’s done for the wrestling world, I know what he’s done for the fans and I know what he’s done for me, personally.

Getting the approval of Ric Flair is the wrestling worlds version of Johnny Carson calling you over to the desk after you just crushed a standup set on The Tonight Show. He is royalty and if he likes your work. he lets you know. If you let him down, even once in 100 matches, he’ll let you know that, too, That’s Ric, I thank him for it every time and always will. He has been instrumental in making me the performer I am today.

The 16-time World Champion has done it all and trust me, that doesn’t just pertain to the ring! Ric lives as only Ric can live, looking only as Ric can look. Every time I see him at a wrestling show, a Cavs game, a hotel, an autograph signing, you name it; he is holding court, everyone is gathered around, hoping to get some advice from The Man, or hear some of the greatest road stories of all time. We will lock eyes, he’ll let out a “Wooo!,” and call me out by name and some other hilariously awesome things I wouldn’t dare repeat here, always making me feel like the king of the world and graciously treating me as his peer.

Ric is everything that embodies sports entertainment, and was so even before that phrase existed. He looks the part, he struts in a room, he steals the show and has gone toe-to-toe with the greatest of all time, and more often than not, some of the worst of all time (but watching him while growing up, I’d never have known that). A lot of people are successful in this business because of a catchphrase, or athletic ability or charisma or wrestling, Ric Flair is the personification of all of those things, much like his daughter Charlotte, as she is already a multiple-time champion after only a few years in the WWE.
