Dolph Ziggler is considered as one of the top in-ring workers in the company, making sure to give it his all and make any opponent look good in the process. However, many fans have said over the years that Ziggler is underrated and has not been utilized to the best of his potential. Ziggler also had no idea he was going to become the NXT Champion.

Earlier this month, Dolph Ziggler squared off against Bron Breakker and Tommaso Ciampa in a triple threat match for the NXT Title at the NXT Roadblock event. Ziggler ended up winning the match and became the NXT Champion.

While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Dolph Ziggler talked about winning the NXT Championship. The Showoff revealed that he had no idea that he was going to win the title at all.

“I had no idea I was going to be NXT Champion. I didn’t plan on it. All I wanted to do was check out some new talent scout amount, see who’s got what it takes to go to the next level at some point, maybe report back, say, hey, RAW, hey, SmackDown, hey Vince McMahon, I see something and these guys, these gals, they could do something big in the future. Let me get my hands on them and next thing you know, two weeks later, I’m the NXT Champion.”


Dolph Ziggler is set to defend his NXT Title against Bron Breakker at NXT Stand & Deliver on April 2nd. It remains to be seen whether Ziggler will end up retaining the NXT Championship or not.
