In a recent interview on Vince Russo’s podcast, Kevin Nash recently expressed his desire to return to the WWE as Dolph Ziggler’s Diesel after comparing Ziggler to WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels:
“People always say would you ever come back to wrestling and I say to myself I’d come back and be [Dolph] Ziggler’s Diesel because that’s all he needs,” Nash said (h/t to Wrestling Inc. reader BAH GAWD for the transcription). “Number one, he’s not a face. Ziggler is a heel and I wouldn’t have to say a word because he can talk. I’ve already had mine. But for the bigger guys, he needs somebody to stomp them. He does the same thing Shawn [Michaels] did. He takes every bump in the world. He takes every beating from the guys and then usually they beat him. But to me, his in ring performance is as good as anybody’s in the business right now. He works so hard.
“I’d like to teach him the little things that Shawn learned. Yeah, he can fly back on every bump but every third one is kind of nice to take a punch and bounce off the ropes. I mean, the ropes are there for a reason.”
