Dolph Ziggler Discusses Brief World Title Reign, Plans To Become Champion Again scribe Maurice Kneisel recently essayed Dolph Ziggler’s unique ride to the top ranks of WWE, with Dolph himself discussing key moments such as his 11 minutes 23 seconds as World Champion:

“As much as it was fun to be in that match and become the champion, losing it a few minutes later is nothing against my legacy. I’m looking forward to proving myself and showing that I can be a long-term champion.”

Ziggler also revealed his confusion at receiving boos from the WWE Universe just a short time ago:

“I understand that I’m not well-liked, but I love going out there and proving that I’m better than everyone else every single night.”

The interview is part of the final edition of The Wrestling Press magazine, also included in this issue are articles on John Cena, Nigel McGuinness (Desmond Wolfe), Gorilla Monsoon, WWE in 2011, and more.

    the fact hes acknowledged as a former world champion is pitiful

  • Straight-edge

    im a fan of dolph i mean he is one of of the guys i can really see being there for a while on a top level. however i thought the same about mvp but he got smart enough to leave wwe

  • Antoine

    dolph ziggler WILL become the new wwe champion before the world ends

  • Sammo

    Yeah, you’re right – I just checked the history of the belt on and they have Ziggler listed as a former champion.

    Well, I’ve learnt something this morning.

  • CM Mark

    Yeah he had it for about 5 minutes! It was legit.

  • Sammo

    Is Dolph’s world title “reign” actually recognised as being legitimate in the WWE annals?!

  • CM Mark

    Yeah, I haven’t seen him main event anything. Punk pinned him and made him tap in his only title shot. I bet if he came out without Vickie it would be totally silent.

    Don’t get me wrong. I really like Ziggler. I thought Mr. Perfect the first time I laid eyes on him. I WANT him to get over. But no, he’s not over yet. Not even close.

  • sdd619

    @CM Mark Dolph Ziggler has already gotten over.

  • CM Mark

    Ziggles can’t get over… Sorry.

  • Paton

    really needs to prove he can draw heat without Vickie because I seriously doubt he could

  • TG

    It’s been a lot of articles about Dolph I don’t even really feel he needs to win Money in the Bank in June anymore. He will be champion before SummerSlam I hope.
