Dolph ZigglerWWE Upset with Punk for NHL Tweet

According to The Wrestling Observer, believe it or not, several WWE officials were upset with CM Punk for tweeting backstage about how good the Chicago Blackhawks vs Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Finals game was on 6/24. Punk sent out the tweet during a live Raw broadcast, and several officials went as far as to blame Punk for the low Raw rating that week.

Ziggler Comments on Concussion, Working w/AJ & Langston & More

WWE star Dolph Ziggler recently did an interview for CarollCountyTimes.com, and below are several highlights:

On returning from a concussion:

"Yeah, I mean, I think I had one other one in college, but nothing this bad ever, in my life."

On what he remembers following the concussion:

"Yeah, sure. I had a bad headache for a solid two weeks afterwards. I was diagnosed with retrograde amnesia which meant I ended up losing a day and a half, two days of my memory instantly, even though when the incident happened, there was like five more minutes of match that I went through and actually executed very well."

On frustration following the concussion:

"I can’t imagine anything in my career that’s been any worse than that. I was lucky enough to cash in my Money in the Bank, become World Heavyweight Champion, at this amazing “Monday Night Raw” with this crowd that was electric and I don’t know that we can ever reproduce again, and to have one week of some TVs go back, have a concussion, be out five weeks, have one title defense and lose it, I’ve never been more frustrated in my entire WWE career when that happened."

On working and travelling with AJ Lee and Big E. Langston:

"Yeah, we do, not even all the time, but some of the time the three of us do travel together, and it’s been kind of cool because AJ’s another one who, as a child, wanted to do this — like when I was five, I wanted to do this and I’m doing it now — I think when she was 8 or 10, she decided she wanted to do it and she’s doing it. So that’s brought us together. The two of us, maybe outside of work, never would’ve bumped into each other or said a word."
