*Spoiler* Dolph Ziggler Takes Shot At CM Punk During SmackDown Promo

In tonight’s opening segment on SmackDown, “re-hired” superstars Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan make appearances and cut promos thanking Sting for helping them to get their jobs back. In Dolph Ziggler’s promo, he says he will continue to fight The Authority and seems to take an obvious shot at the departed WWE-now UFC star CM Punk – here is the line:

“I’d rather sit here in this ring and face any punishment they give me every day for the rest of my life than sit at home on some couch complaining on a podcast.”

Was the line a shoot by Ziggler or was it pre-empted as part of a script from WWE creative? That, we don’t know.

    Try English 101. It’ll help you learn proper grammar and punctuation.

    The explanation was already given to which no one else had a problem understanding. I have no interest in entertaining you so you will not get another response from me.

    in what way is punk a phony you don’t know what you are talking about,you are an imbecile!

  • The Killswitch

    He actually didn’t care they pushed Bryan.

  • Azeem

    yeah its getting old comes across like a high break up lol

  • Keith Learmonth

    He’s the kind of guy who’s let his mouth get him in trouble a lot in the past… so it wouldn’t surprise me at all off this was all his idea.

    Well, that pretty much was the Austin interview. It was a strategic move by WWE no doubt considering the history of Austin and what happened in 2002. Austin has been shouting from the rooftops to anyone who will listen about how much he regrets doing what he did so they probably have him up there to try and make Punk feel guilty. I don’t think Austin realizes that he was a pawn in all that. Or maybe he does. Or he could have some personal reasons why he did it. He did go on record say that the only person he would come out of retirement to wrestle is CM Punk. He may have had his own agenda.

    Who cares if Ziggler takes a cheap shot at CM Punk. Like the WWE wrestler don’t have a right to speak there mind to.

  • Azeem

    Yeah I get what your saying, I just think its funny how wwe has acted about it all with the vince the interview with stone cold and these comments in promos they keep going on with lol, whens the cm punk screwed cm punk vince promo coming out?

    Last I checked he took shots at them first and still does it to this day when he gets a chance. He’s not the victim he claims to be or believe that he is. Everything he said about what goes on back stage in WWE is true, but it was true BEFORE he signed any WWE contract he signed. He didn’t see to have a problem with it when he held the WWE title for longer than anyone since Hulk Hogan. He didn’t have a problem when he was in all the main events and all attention was focused on him. Instead of rising above WWE’s immaturity, he set out to prove he could surpass it.

    It’s only when he had to step aside and lets someone else have a turn when it became a problem. Oh by way way, CM Punk walked on not only on WWE, but the fans that supported him as well whom to this day has not so much as said “thank you” and “bye” to the fans that made him. He called John Cena a phony and while I’m not arguing that because I agree, ironically he is every bit a phony as he is.

  • Azeem

    I just love how upset WWE are still over punk, they’ve always bullied certain wrestlers then one guy sticks up to them and leaves and explains why he left in one podcast and there still taking shots at him LOL, maybe Vince will go back to ripping JR next?

  • D2K

    I’m sure he was told to say it, but I’m also sure a lot of people in WWE agree with the comment.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    In woild think that it was Ziggler, he just doesn’t seem like te type of guy that would feel comfortable doing that and I am sure there’s many many guys that feel the same way as that quote.
