Dolph Ziggler: WWE Banned Me From Wearing Leopard Print


Dolph Ziggler has worn plenty of attires throughout his WWE career, but don’t expect to see him wear leopard print.

Ziggler debuted as the golf caddy of Kerwin White (Chavo Guerrero) in 2005 before being introduced as Nicky of the Spirit Squad in 2006.


It wouldn’t be until 2008 that Ziggler would get his most iconic name, which he still uses to this day.

Speaking in an interview with B-Sox, Ziggler spoke about his love for leopard print and the edict he received after WWE Hell in a Cell 2009. He said,

“I like leopard print. I got snow leopard gloves, a snow leopard vest, snow leopard trunks, and I got the craziest, biggest purple-orange spray tan you could ever get, and I bleached my hair fresh the night before. I go, ‘This is so outlandish and douchey. It’s gonna be great.’

“I got to wrestle John Morrison, one of my best friends, and we had such a blast beating the hell out of each other, and I came to the back and, in words I can’t repeat, I was told that this would never be worn again. ‘Great match, don’t ever do that again.’ ‘Okay, I got it, thank you.’”

Ziggler’s most recent match (sans leopard print of course) came on the November 14th episode of RAW, with a win over Austin Theory.
