While appearing on Isacc Wenzel’s “All Things Wrestling Radio” show, Dolph Ziggler revealed that he actually pleaded for months to be removed from WWE television because he didn’t believe that he deserved to be on the show. Ziggler felt that someone that lost as much as he did, shouldn’t have a spot on weekly WWE television.
“I will say that I really begged and pleaded for a couple months off the television show, because no matter how good I am or what I’m up to, it seems that 99 times out of 100, I would lose. I didn’t think that I deserved to be on the TV show if I was someone that was losing every night, so I asked to be taken off. I was hoping for maybe six months or a year, and it ended up being four weeks.”
