Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre formed a tag team in 2018 when McIntyre made his jump back to the main roster. They gained substantial momentum before eventually breaking up. The two had a common goal to rid the locker room of people who were just there to collect a paycheck.
Ziggler will challenge McIntyre for the WWE Title at the Horror Show at Extreme Rules. Ziggler gets to pick the stipulation as well, but he has yet to reveal it.
While speaking to WWE The Bump, Dolph Ziggler spoke about his team with McIntyre. They enjoyed each other’s company, and they also bonded over the desire to make sure that everyone in the locker room operated at 100%
“I see him backstage at RAW, and I was like, ‘Man, I remember seeing this guy, and I like seeing him around.’ I really enjoyed that he wanted to get rid of a lot of people in the locker room who were going three-quarters speed. He wanted everyone to go 100%. He goes, ‘We need to get rid of these hangers-on.’ I said, ‘I have a great idea: let’s make this happen [and become a tag-team].
“If I wanted to have someone have my back and get some things done around here, it was him. I’m very proud of him. No matter what I say.”
Drew McIntyre knows Ziggler well. He will likely pick a stipulation to throw the King Of Claymore Country off his game. The only thing we know about this stipulation is that it has never been seen before.
Ziggler tried everything he could to get under McIntyre’s skin and play mind games on the way to their big match. WWE’s Horror Show at Extreme Rules will air this Sunday, July 19th on the WWE Network. We will have full coverage right here at Ringside News.
