Dolph Ziggler recently spoke with Sky Sports to promote the upcoming WWE UK tour in November. Here are the highlights.
On the brand extension:
“I said the brand split would be a chance for a lot of up-and-coming guys to get a chance to be on television, get a few minutes of microphone time or introduce themselves. I didn’t see it happening for me but it has actually given me a chance to be myself and not memorise something or say a catchphrase. It has been real and reinvented me.”
On regaining the prestige of the WWE Intercontinental Title:
“About 20 or 30 years ago that was a stepping stone title or showed you who could be the next guy to take the ball and run with it,” said Ziggler. “Everyone has been talking about getting it back to that and I think Miz did a great job. “He is a jerk but he took that title everywhere he went, found a way to get everyone talking about it, and made it more than he was. Hopefully I can add my two cents to it, make it more special and ensure a match for the title main events a Smackdown Live or becomes the focal point of the show.”
