In a recent interview with The Herald-Dispatch, Dolph Ziggler spoke candidly about the 30 day WWE suspension he received last year for violating the Wellness Policy for the first time. Below are some quotes from the interview:
"That was a worse case scenario. Be careful what you get into and who you are associated with. It can easily be taken away. I had month to think it over. I said I won’t make that mistake again."
"I get a tryout, a contract, a callup, a win. The Intercontinental Championship is the goal now. I want to become the best IC champion ever and move on."
"A lot of guys are in their mid-30s. I need to get more solid. In the future I look to be one of the leaders in the locker room."
