Dolph Ziggler Interview highlights:
WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler was recently interviewed on The Scoscia Network and discussed his time in Law School and why he never had to work the independents: “I was enrolled in law school. Law/politics is one of my loves. But, since I was five-years-old, I wanted to be a WWE superstar. “I wear a lot of different hats. I stay up-to-date in politics and I’m interested in all that stuff. But, my love is entertaining. “… I wish there was some funny story about how everyone told me I couldn’t do it, but I think everybody in my family has been behind me since day one. They knew that I had the talent, the discipline and the love for entertainment. It’s funny, it wasn’t like, ‘Ah, we’ll see.’ It was like, ‘Yeah, you’ll probably do it.’ I wrestled since I was 5-years-old all the way to high school and college. I broke records at Kent State University. “Eventually, I was lucky enough just based on my discipline and being a great college wrestler — and just being interested, meeting a few people, shake a few hands — I was lucky enough to get a tryout without working the independent scene.” Ziggler also discussed the comparisons he gets to other wrestlers: “Honestly, there are several guys that I watched and studied. Because I knew they were ring generals and I’ve always been a student of this business. Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Mr. Perfect, Billy Gunn — any of those guys who were athletes who always wanted all eyes on them and wanted to steal the show every time they went out there. “Subconsciously, I think I started moving around like Mr. Perfect at times, but it’s also a combination of 20 other superstars that I grew up watching and just knew that they were so fluid and so great in the ring. Subconsciously, you just start to pick up moves and traits. “I think, more importantly, we have similar hair. Honestly, though, it’s a honor to be compared to those guys who were my heroes growing up.”
