Dolph Ziggler has become one of the most dependable stars in WWE since he signed back in 2004. He has won various titles over the years and continues to go beyond his limits to make his opponents look good.
Several fans have said over the years that Ziggler is underrated and has yet to be used to his full potential. He was also the NXT Champion for a while until he lost it to Bron Breakker.
While speaking on the 83 Weeks podcast, a fan asked Eric Bischoff about the current stars he’d pick if he were to start a promotion. Bischoff named Ziggler, comparing him to Kurt Angle.
“I still think Dolph Ziggler is one of the most underrated, incredible talent that’s out there, all the time. He’s just perfect. He’s really versatile, I think he’s got some depth, you know, given his amateur background, his believability – that’s why I feel the way I feel – his believability of the ring.
He reminds me a little bit of Kurt Angle. I know they’re not in the same category necessarily as amateur wrestlers, but just like Kurt had the ability to go out and just be a legitimate man-killing machine, because of his credibility, and then on Tuesday night, he could do stand-up with you.”
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.
