Dolph Ziggler talks about his relationship with Vince McMahon, The Miz, more

Dolph Ziggler recently spoke with Sky Sports to promote the upcoming WWE UK tour in November. During the interview, Ziggler was asked about his current feud with The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Title on SmackDown Live. The storyline going into their match at the WWE No Mercy pay-per-view event was that Ziggler lost big title matches in the past and that his WWE career was on the line. Ziggler hopes that his reign as Intercontinental Champion brings a new lease on his life.

“Any world championship or WrestleMania match I’ve had didn’t have the build that this match did,” said Ziggler. “All 11 years of my career – mainly how I lose all the time – played into it, with Miz showing a highlights package featuring every terrible thing that has happened to me in this company. I had to put something on the line to force myself to step up or go away. I knew I needed to be more special than someone who is just good at wrestling and overcoming that challenge and becoming champion has hopefully given my career a whole new lease of life.”

Ziggler was asked about his relationship with Vince McMahon, he explained that he has always been told by fellow wrestlers and WWE employees that he should have a good relationship with McMahon. Ziggler did admit that it was difficult to have a relationship with McMahon because he only sees him twice a week and it’s on TV event days.

“I have always been told it’s important to have a relationship with Vince but at the same time it is difficult. The one or two days a week you would see him he is extremely busy getting the shows ready for the live audience, so if you find two or three minutes you’d better have something good to say as he is a workaholic and you are eating into his time. He is a little scary at first but the more you talk to him, the more you deliver in the ring and the more he can count on you [the more time he has for you]. For years I have taken the time to say hello and bring up an idea and he is usually very receptive. He has started to trust me a lot more.”

Ziggler also talked about the brand extension and more. You can read the entire interview here.
