Dolph Ziggler Says He’s Not Pleased With Brief WWE Title Run



On the February 18 episode of SmackDown, Vickie Guerrero fired Edge, claiming that he had attacked SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long several weeks prior, and awarded Dolph Ziggler the World Heavyweight Championship during a coronation ceremony later that night. Long returned during the ceremony however, and Guerrero revealed Ziggler as the attacker after being accused of orchestrating the attack by Long. Long rehired Edge and gave him his rematch, in which Edge regained the championship. Ziggler’s first World Championship reign lasted 11 minutes and 23 seconds, the shortest in history behind Jeff Hardy. After the match, Long fired Ziggler from the brand.

In an exclusive interview with DolphZiggler.com, “Heel” comments on his brief run as World Heavyweight Champion. They ask if it is better to have won and lost the title than to have never won it at all.

“Well, from an independent booking standpoint, it helps to say: “Former World Heavyweight Champion” (A la’ David Arquette and Vince Russo) otherwise, it’s painful to me,” he responded. “I work so damn hard every day of my life and always have, and as much as I would have loved to sneak in the backdoor (like a real HEEL would), I almost don’t count it. I will get a legitimate title run, just not sure where though.”

Last night on Monday Night Raw, Ziggler was introduced as the newest member of the Raw roster, as he defeated John Morrison in a singles match. He revealed what he did during his time away from the ring.

“Since being fired, I have been enjoying the beautiful weather of Bikini Bottom; relaxing my body, stealing the show at the Playboy Mansion party and have recently just flew my parents in to check out my new house in Hollywood, AZ,” he said. “I had a very hectic schedule with SmackDown, and I loved it. But, I’m resting my body and enjoying life while I figure out what the next step is.”

Ziggler also comments on his appearance on MTV’s Silent Library, which WWE Diva had the best Playboy pictorial, what it takes to get a follow from him on Twitter, and for the first time ever, reveals his workout secrets.
