Dolph Ziggler has become a mainstay on WWE television since his 2004 signing with the company. He began as member of the Spirit Squad and has since won numerous titles, including the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the NXT Championship, and the Intercontinental Championship.
Since making his way to NXT 2.0 earlier this year, Dolph Ziggler quickly became one of the mainstays of the brand. After winning the NXT title, he engaged in a feud with Bron Breakker.
Ziggler dropped the title to Breakker in April on an episode of Monday Night RAW. While speaking on Casual Conversations with The Classic, Dolph Ziggler claimed that WWE extended his program with Bron Breakker due to its huge success.
It was kind of cool, because with this business, some days you open your phone and you’re like, ‘Hey, you’re going to London tomorrow at 6:00 a.m.,'” he said. “And you go, ‘Okay,’ and you go. This was one of those things that for a month or two ahead of time, they’re like, ‘Could you see working with Breakker? What do you think here?'”
I was like, ‘Oh, this is exciting and fun,'” he continued. “And I’m getting a little bit of a different take on my character, I thought this would be really cool, and it ended up going so well and working so smoothly with Breakker who was very, very, like comically new — only a handful of matches. For that to go as well as it did, and have that chemistry and camaraderie that we had, we ended up extending it three more weeks than we were going to.”
Randy Orton also previously called Dolph Ziggler the greatest worker of his generation. We will have to wait and see what the company has planned for the Show-Off next.
