The Rock popped on Instagram and he left his nod of approval for Dolph Ziggler becoming WWE Champion. This made headlines because receiving Dwayne Johnson’s praise is a pretty big deal. The Show Off certainly noticed.
Dolph Ziggler hopped on Twitter where he let out two tweets about receiving a kudos from The Great One. Ziggler kept his typical heel persona, but you could tell that there was a part of him that was at least slightly humbled.
Ziggler will face Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title during The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. Dolph gets to pick the stipulation, but he’s waiting until the night of the show to reveal his plan.
ANOTHER legend signs off on DZ for WWE champ & its the greatest of all time, @TheRock. Appreciate it brother, I truly do. But only 1 man can right this wrong Sunday, ME. See you at #ExtremeRules drew? haha & I thought MY name didn’t make any sense
can you please untag me from your never-ending convo about me & how you know more than the rock about who’s good and who sucks at wrestling?
Dolph Ziggler receives accolades from peers and wrestling legends alike. He recently joked that maybe he’d be Randy Orton if Eric Bischoff or Ric Flair owned WWE. Both have also been outspoken about his abilities.
The Rock doesn’t show up on WWE television much anymore. Perhaps Ziggler and the Great One can have a little interaction next time he’s around so The Rock can give him props in person, or a Rock Bottom.
