Dolph Ziggler made an appearance on today’s episode of WWE’s The Bump to discuss a wide range of topics.
During it, he was asked about his favorite Royal Rumble moment. This is where he recalled facing Edge in 2011. Here is what he had to say:
“There was a Royal Rumble where I fought against Edge for the World Heavyweight title once,” he replied. “We went one-on-one to open up the Royal Rumble. I went in knowing and the entire audience knowing that I had no chance of winning. Because Edge is so awesome at what he does because that rivalry became so great because I learned so much in the past from traveling with him, [I knew] I was a formable opponent to him at the time.
“Ten minutes into that 30-minute match, the entire crowd started coming around and realized there was a star in the making here. We beat the living hell out of each other. I appreciate anyone who loves and respects this business that knows you can go hard on them, and they’ll come back much harder on you. We stoled the show opening, and everybody had to follow it afterward. I do not know who won that Royal Rumble, and I don’t remember being in there. All I know is they weren’t sitting down the last 15 minutes of it. They knew I was going to lose, and we told them otherwise halfway through.”
