Dolph Ziggler Discusses Learning from Mysterio, His Recent Match with CM Punk

– WWE United States Champion Dolph Ziggler spoke with The Miami Herald this week. Here are some highlights:

His recent RAW match with CM Punk:
“A lot of people enjoyed the match, and my family and friends liked it. Honestly, since last Monday, I haven’t been able to sleep that well, because I really wanted that match to be one of the best ever, and it wasn’t. So I have something to build toward, and hopefully we’ll get to do it on a big stage, and if we do, I know we will tear the house down. I know it.”

Learning from Rey Mysterio:
“When I was working by myself, I got a good chance to get in the ring with Rey Mysterio, when I was virtually an unknown. I got a good chance to get in there and learn from him and actually got a chance to steal the show, even if it was mostly Rey Mysterio and everyone knowing him. I said, ‘From here on out, I want that reaction every single time.’ So every time I went back out, I couldn’t wait to out-do myself, until one day I was the main star in the ring and someone’s trying to hang with me.”

    God im so glad so many people feel the same way i do! Ziggler is main event ready now. how many more toop naames does he need to face? Cena, Orton, Punk & even beat Edge for the WHC (which he never got a rematch for). I love the fact that Cody & Ziggler are bringing a prestige to the titles that needs to rub off on the main event titlees. Whoever beats them for those belts, will get a serious push. And i hope a loss of belts is a push into the main event for them both. sorry for this bein so long, just so much to say on these future main eventers.

    He’s the showstopper. The heel. He is…Dolph Ziggler!

    I remember a few months back that nobody commented in his interviews on any website, now everybody is praising him, is rare that I that read bad comments about him he is really good

    Dolph and Cody are the future. These guys are amazing and have it all. I hope they get a HUGE push here in the near future and it looks like they’re going to get it.

    Dolph Ziggler is the future!! I think he’s scary good right now who’s only getting better.

  • Sammo

    Nah, I think CM Punk has got to fight a bigger name than Ziggler at Wrestlemania – without wanting to sound disprespectful to Ziggler.

    Chris Jericho, Undertaker, HHH, Orton, Steve Austin (maybe next year!).. Someone more along those lines.

    Dolph Ziggler is a really good performer, and I hope his push continues. He has improved so much since his debut, and he’s a lot more comfortable on the mic now. The match with CM Punk was excellent, one of the best on RAW in awhile. Even though Punk won, he still put Ziggler over in a big way with several near-falls. I think he’s nearly ready to step up to the Main Event, though I really like how he and Cody are bringing up the credibility of the secondary belts. Just please give him a good feud for once.

    I think Ziggler will win the Rumble and face Punk for the WWE title. That would be a match that could steal the show.

  • Sammo

    I seemed a little slower than everyone else to realise – but Dolph Ziggler has evolved into a truly awesome performer.

    If he doesn’t start regularly headlining PPVs next year then I vow to put my face in a beehive.
