WWE is currently over in the UK right now, and Sky Sports sat down and spoke to the WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler and we have some of the highlights.
Thoughts on the draft:
Ziggler : “I said the brand split would be a chance for a lot of up-and-coming guys to get a chance to be on television, get a few minutes of microphone time or introduce themselves. I didn’t see it happening for me but it has actually given me a chance to be myself and not memorise something or say a catchphrase. It has been real and reinvented me.”
On regaining the prestige of the WWE Intercontinental Title:
Ziggler: “About 20 or 30 years ago that was a stepping stone title or showed you who could be the next guy to take the ball and run with it,” said Ziggler. “Everyone has been talking about getting it back to that and I think Miz did a great job. “He is a jerk but he took that title everywhere he went, found a way to get everyone talking about it, and made it more than he was. Hopefully I can add my two cents to it, make it more special and ensure a match for the title main events a Smackdown Live or becomes the focal point of the show.”
Who will answer the challenge from RAW:
Ziggler: “I’m unsure at this point, I’ve seen a lot of rumors it could be either Seth Rollins or Sami Zayn. I believe one of those men will be the final spot for the traditional 5 on 5 and it’s anyone’s guess if the other one steps up and answers my challenge.”
