For many, Dolph Ziggler is one of the talented gifted in-ring competitors in the WWE. The Show-Off goes the extra mile in order to ensure his opponents look like a million bucks. Kevin Owens also doesn’t want to end up like Dolph Ziggler.

Several fans have said over the years that Ziggler is underrated and really has not been utilized as well as he deserves to be. He was also the NXT Champion for a while until he lost it to Bron Breakker.

While speaking on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, Kevin Owens stated that he respects Dolph Ziggler a lot. Owens then explained why he doesn’t want to end up like Dolph Ziggler when it comes to not getting good opportunities.

“He’s a guy I respect a ton. I am not so sure whether I have told him this, but he is definitely one of the people that I would look at and think, ‘Man, I don’t wanna be like Dolph.’ In the sense that Ziggler is so good, and I would see him so frustrated because he’s so good and he feels like he should be doing more, and he was right.


This was 2015, 2016. I was like, ‘I don’t wanna be like that. I wanna come to work and I don’t wanna be frustrated all the time.’ But guess what? When you’re passionate and hungry and you know you’re good, which is what he is, it’s inevitable. It’s gonna happen to everybody.”

Dolph Ziggler hasn’t competed since losing the NXT Championship to Bron Breakker on Monday Night RAW earlier this month. We’ll have to see when Ziggler will make his return to WWE television.
