WWE star Dolph Ziggler spoke with Chris Van Vliet of WOIO in Cleveland and discussed the way he sells moves. "I do everything, especially when I’m getting beat up, If I’m going to run into something, I’m running into it full force and it hurts," Ziggler said. "But instead of hearing ‘oh, is that guy ok?’ you hear ‘OOOOH!!’. My body’s on the line because I love this and I do it for a living."

Dolph also said he doesn't like to acknowledge his only World Title reign. "I don't like to count that because it was even a sticky situation where I was barely handed the championship," he said. "Technically I was told by Joey Styles that it counts in the record books, I don't count it. I have been working way too hard for too many years for that to be my championship. This one (Money in the Bank) is gonna be the start of my championship reign."

Ziggler also spoke about being compared to Shawn Michaels and Curt Hennig. "“Mr. Perfect, I was a big fan of his because we kind of had similar deals like wow, we’re almost too good at this that it looks easy sometimes," he said. "Huge fan of his, huge fan of Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair.

"Those guys who always wanted the spotlight even if they weren’t supposed to be in it. They were the guys, if they weren’t the main event, they showed up the main event to let everyone know that next time you put me in there." You can view the interview at

Powell's POV: Ziggler also noted that he has to travel with the MITB briefcase. "It counts as one of my carry-ons so you never know what's going to be in there," he said. It's a fun 19-minute interview and is recommended viewing. More importantly, you get another look at Van Vliet's amazing Movember mustache.
