Dolph Ziggler Speaks on the Danger of His Wrestling Style, Concussion Setbacks and More

Nick Paglino

Dolph ZigglerWWE star Dolph Ziggler recently did an interview with Brian Fritz of BetweenTheRopes.com, and below are some interview highlights:

"I’ve been pulled aside by legends and guys backstage and being told that I put my body through too much sometimes. I understand that, but I’m out there in the ring trying to give the best possible performance I can. I can’t not run into something as hard as I can. I can’t not give my all. And one day that could be a problem, but so far I’ve never been injured to where I was out for weeks from anything I’ve done."

"I got kicked in the head one time and, like you said, it was a fluke, and every other thing I’ve done I put my body on the line because I want to because I want this crowd to go 'ooh' and 'ahh' and 'Wow, we’ve got to get behind this guy.' I go there to prove to myself that I’m going to work harder than everyone else and I always will."

"I feel like before the concussion we were finally starting to get some momentum. I was the only guy in this business who had a girlfriend and a giant bodyguard ringside with me and would still lose every night. As we were starting to work together and actually piece together some wins, I started to feel this is how a faction works. Just then, I got the concussion and I think that set back a few things and put in motion that maybe it’s time everyone goes their separate ways."
