Dolph Ziggler Has Harsh Words for Triple H & Randy Orton

Mike Killam

WWE Superstar and former world champion Dolph Ziggler was on DC 101 with Mike Jones this week to promote the upcoming WWE Live show at the Verizon Center, and had some pretty harsh (in-character) words for Triple H and his poster boy, WWE Champion Randy Orton. 

"Randy Orton seems to have had the machine behind him since day one, and now it's out in public where everyone can see, 'oh WWE has always been behind Randy Orton no matter what.' If you've been familiar with WWE for the last ten years, you would understand without Triple H coming up front and saying 'this is our handpicked guy' … you would already know that they made up their mind about him a long time ago. No matter what he does, good or bad, they're behind him and they will go out of their way to cut people's legs out from under them to make sure Randy comes out looking great.

"I'm really happy for Randy – he's awesome. It makes me made how good he is. But the opportunity he gets over and over again makes that chip on my shoulder is going to be that much bigger. I want to let Triple H know that he backed the wrong guy for the last ten years, and no matter what I'm come out on top one way or another … "I back the company as much as I can, but at some point some other people need some opporunities. Personally, on stage and out in public – Triple H going out of his way to let people know who they should cheer for and get behind, and that's just not how the WWE works." 

Ziggler also had high praise for Christian and his feud with world champion Alberto del Rio, being sick of John Cena's character, and more. Listen to the complete interview at DC101.com!
