Welcome to another edition of E&C’s POD OF AWESOMENESS
This week, The Rocket Strappers spoke with a man who strapped the rocket to himself, as he’s had one hell of a career in the WWE, The Showoff, Dolph Ziggler.Ziggler talked with E&C about his amateur wrestling background, his early gimmicks within WWE, and his ascent to becoming WWE Champion. He also touched on his future, told some road stories, and described what it was like the first time he got on stage to do stand-up comedy (Christian gave Dolph a great opening line to use at future shows).
This was a fun episode, brother brothers. Enjoy.
When Bobby Roode challenged Baron Corbin for the United States Title on SmackDown LIVE, The Lone Wolf replied with a curt, “No.” He might end up wishing he had taken the offer.
At WWE Clash of Champions, a night where every championship is on the line, The Lone Wolf will now face two challengers for his title: Roode and, in a surprising twist, Dolph Ziggler, who has been a thorn in the side of The Glorious One since his debut late into the summer. The title match provides ample opportunity for both Superstars to reassert themselves. Roode came up short as part of Team SmackDown at Survivor Series, and Ziggler hasn’t been seen since losing a 2-out-of-3-Falls Match to The Glorious One on Halloween, a night he openly wondered what would be next for his career. Corbin, meanwhile, is coming to the bout from an unexpected place of strength. The Lone Wolf is the only Superstar in the match who won at Survivor Series, knocking off then-Intercontinental Champion The Miz after a lengthy back-and-forth over social media where The A-Lister questioned Corbin’s commitment and talent. Having vindicated himself, it seems Corbin felt his work was done. Clearly, it’s just getting started.
