WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler competed on Sunday’s “Roast Battle” season two premiere on Comedy Central. Ziggler battled comedian Sarah Tiana in the roast style, insult comedy contest. Before reading the result below, you can check out the full show at CC.com. Ziggler’s segment starts around 11:00, but please note that it’s NSFW and don’t bother watching insult comedy if you are easily offended.
Powell’s POV: Tiana beat Ziggler by a 2-1 vote from judges Jeff Ross, Nikki Glazer, and Anthony Jeselnik. Ziggler did a nice job and I actually would have voted for him as the winner. Glazer was the judge who gave the nod to Ziggler, and Ross noted that he was surprised that Ziggler performed so well in his first roast battle.
