Rising WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler recently spoke with Amarillo.com about a number of subjects. Among them was who his favorite opponent is. “Me and Kofi Kingston have had like 100 matches together,” Ziggler said. “It’s come down to some really fun ones. We’ve been in ladder matches together. We’ve done some really cool things. He does awesome stuff, and I’m really good at taking it away from the fans and not letting them see it. We work well together. I enjoy watching him when I’m not in the ring with him. When I do get in there with him, we usually tear it up pretty well.”
Ziggler also spoke on being cheered while working as a heel. “They come to realize and recognize someone who puts in the hard work and puts it all on the line no matter what,” he said. “I’ve never been handed anything. I’ve worked for every single thing I’ve gotten, and I think the fans can relate to that.
“When I go out there, they know I’m not going to phone it in. I go out there to put it all on the line. I want to put the best possible show on for these fans, and they realize that and respect it. Whether they like you or they hate you, they love to see you do your thing.”
