Dolph ZigglerRing of Honor matchmaker Nigel McGuinness spoke with WildTalkRadio.com this week, and was asked his thoughts on the World Heavyweight Championship victory of WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler, and him displaying the title similar to how Nigel wore the ROH World title. 

"You know they say ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ but you just never know. I’ve known [Dolph] for a long time; I knew him when he was just starting out, I think he paid his way to OVW and he’s been a real success story.

"You can certainly liken him to a Curt Henning – you know, Mr. Perfect; someone like that. He’s the Curt Henning of our generation. Obviously, he has the negative in the sense that he didn’t have the background that Curt Henning did, and no one did. None of us had that ability to work the territories in the way Curt Henning did, so we’re all struggling to keep up and Nick’s done a fantastic job of doing that.

"If he did take it from me, good for him. As I said, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, but a lot of times you have to understand as well – with some notable exceptions – sometimes it just happens by chance. Some people do things that other people have done along the way. So, I don’t know and like I said, I wish him all the best and I know he’s worked hard for that spot and I hope he continues to do well."
