Dolph Ziggler Talks About Speaking Out and The Worst Thing He Does

– WWE’s website has a new Q&A up with Dolph Ziggler from the latest issue of WWE Magazine.

WWE Mag: After winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match in July, you shouted: “It’s about damn time!” It felt like it was not only an exclamation from you regarding how far you’ve come, but for Ziggler fans who keep waiting for everyone else to catch up with how talented you are. What was on your mind in that moment?

Ziggler: I can only speak up so much — whether it’s backstage or on Twitter and in interviews — and if I didn’t think I was this good, then I wouldn’t keep telling people to put me in these situations. I’ve been saying for years that I deserve to be there, and I value my word as something that truly means something. That’s why that came out. It’s about damn time that people woke up to what just about everyone in the world had already known.

WWE Mag: But finally, give us a little humility for once: what’s the absolute worst thing that you do?

Ziggler: I don’t listen … to a point where if I think something’s right, I’ll go ahead and do it anyway, and it’ll be the wrong thing to do. That’s what’s holding me back. I tell myself how great I am, but sometimes I’m wrong. Some people have been here a lot longer, and sometimes they’re going to be right, and damn it, I’m going to have to pay attention to that.
