Dolph Ziggler Comments on Legends Telling Him to Slow Down & More
On wrestlers telling him his style will lead to serious injuries down the line: “I’ve been pulled aside by legends and guys backstage and being told that I put my body through too much sometimes. I understand that, but I’m out there in the ring trying to give the best possible performance I can. I can’t not run into something as hard as I can. I can’t not give my all. And one day that could be a problem, but so far I’ve never been injured to where I was out for weeks from anything I’ve done.”
On why he wrestles the hard-nosed style that he does: “I got kicked in the head one time and, like you said, it was a fluke, and every other thing I’ve done I put my body on the line because I want to because I want this crowd to go ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ and ‘Wow, we’ve got to get behind this guy.’ I go there to prove to myself that I’m going to work harder than everyone else and I always will.”
On losing momentum after suffering a concussion: “I feel like before the concussion we were finally starting to get some momentum. I was the only guy in this business who had a girlfriend and a giant bodyguard ringside with me and would still lose every night. As we were starting to work together and actually piece together some wins, I started to feel this is how a faction works. Just then, I got the concussion and I think that set back a few things and put in motion that maybe it’s time everyone goes their separate ways.”
