Dolph Ziggler once had an angle where he would come out to entrances of WWE legends. Crowds would cheer when they heard the entrances, but then realized it was Dolph and ended up hating him.
Dolph Ziggler spoke to The Mirror, where he explained this angle. The plan definitely included getting heat on him, but it was better thought-out than just that.
“It’s hard to say because for the longest time I’ve been a wrestling fan above everything. I’ve watched the old tapes, but at the time, I really didn’t want to be doing it because I didn’t feel like we were surprising anyone. We’d have me come out and say ‘now I’m gonna trick you’ and then I would go back and come out again.”
“So, I think the whole point of that would be to, anytime during the two-three hour show, hear The Undertaker’s music and think ‘well, he’s not supposed to be here! Oh, it’s Dolph’ and I’d say ‘you idiots have based your whole life on an entrance theme that’s on you, you should be enjoying… and so on…’ That’s what I thought. I didn’t understand it and I fought against it a little bit and they told me ‘no.’”
Dana Warrior was upset with the fact Dolph Ziggler borrowed her late-husband Ultimate Warrior’s entrance. Right now Ziggler is teaming up with Robert Roode and has seen success.
