Dolph Ziggler Talks Losing, Fans, MITB, and More

You aren’t the only one who hates seeing Dolph Ziggler lose on WWE television every week. Dolph is not happy with it either, as a matter of a fact he hates it. A great interview with Ziggler reveals his honest thoughts on losing, his place on the cards, his fan support, and much more.

Ziggler sat down with Chris Van Vliet in Cleveland in what is probably the most interesting interview you will see with a current WWE superstar. Ziggler walks the fine line initially of work and shoot but shifts completely into shoot just a few minutes into the discussion. If you are a fan of Ziggler in the ring, it is hard not to appreciate him even more after watching this interview.

The topic of Dolph losing has been a hot one lately on the Internet. I just wrote an entire blog devoted to the subject a few days ago. Dolph has turned into a real popular wrestler offline, especially in the world of social media thanks to his hard work and entertaining style inside of the ring. Ziggler calls himself a “cult, unsung hero” at one point in the interview as a result of the support. As far as losing goes, Dolph is not happy. As a matter of a fact, he hates it.

“It does me. Since I was 5 years old and started wrestling, I lost once. I hated it and never wanted it to happen again. And all through my life, it wasn’t just about being a great wrestler, it was about proving myself. I’ve done well in High School and college and even here in WWE, I’ve had some streaks. Right now, I am not winning very often and it disappoints me and it disappoints my fans.”

That is just the tip of the iceberg. Here are a few other topics Dolph touches on in the 21 minute interview.

– His cult-like status on the Internet
– The WWE Attitude Era coming back
– His faction’s place on the cards
– The Rock’s schedule
– If he’ll cash in at WrestleMania 29
– Tweeting with his fans
– Whether he is afraid of his high-impact style will come back to haunt him later
– His reaction at TLC against John Cena
– Going from Vickie to AJ
– Jack Swagger’s recent troubles

– Whether he reads what fans are saying or writing about him on the Internet
– Why the fans are behind him
– The Rock vs. John Cena “Once in a Lifetime” rematch
– Whether he should pull back in the ring

Check out the interview. It’s one of the best you’ll read in 2013 with a WWE superstar. If you liked him before, you’ll have even more of an appreciation for Dolph after the interview.
