WWE News: Dolph Ziggler on locker room resentment over part-time wrestlers appearing in the big three matches at WrestleMania 29

Apr 6, 2013 - 12:30 PM

WWE star Dolph Ziggler spoke with ESPN reporter Jon Robinson and was asked whether there is resentment in the locker room over the part-time wrestlers appearing in the big three matches. "Yeah, of course there is, but that’s how it goes," he said. "When somebody is getting a lot of time on TV, a lot of people will start to resent them or think they’re better. But that’s how it goes. And you know what, I hate it, I hate that part-timers have to come back in order for us to have the biggest WrestleMania there is, but it’s also smart business.

"The biggest movie star in the entire world just happens to have come from WWE, so who wouldn’t want to see the biggest movie star go up against the biggest WWE superstar we have, the face of the organization, the franchise? That match just has the glitz and glamour, that’s the main event and we get that. The guys who resent it 100 percent just don’t understand the business because there’s money to be made, there’s eyes to be brought to a WrestleMania. Say it was me and Daniel Bryan headlining, we’re not going to get those people who pay to see a movie star.

"Our job is, we get the people who pay to see Rock and John Cena, and you leave an impression that you stole the show. You do something to make them come back and see you the next day. That is my goal every time we do this, and of course, on Sunday, all those people tune in to see The Rock and Cena, but I’m going to leave them thinking I stole the show and now they have to tune in on Monday to see what I’m going to do next. That’s how I’ve been able to build my entire career. I’ve found a way to stand out and steal the show." Read the full interview at

Powell's POV: Ziggler previously admitted that he was bothered by The Rock's involvement at one time, but he had a change of heart. He's approaching it the right way and that seems like a very honest answer. He also discusses Big E Langston and Fandango working WrestleMania, Edge and other influences, whether he believes he will headline WrestleMania 30, and the possibility of holding two titles coming out of WrestleMania 29.
