Dolph Ziggler Talks About The Spirit Squad, Steroids In Wrestling & More

Published On February 22, 2013 by (WWE News)

WWE superstar recently spoke with Metro.co.uk during his promotional tour of Australia. Here are some highlights of what Ziggler said about:

His Background Studying Law:

“I studied it at college and am still interested in it but I had wanted to wrestle since I was five. You never know what’s going to happen in this career, so I went to college to have something to fall back on.”

Being part of The Spirit Squad:

“I was in the Spirit Squad, which was a group of guys with a cheerleading theme. I told myself no matter what the persona is, get your foot in the door and run with it. e got beat up sometimes and sometimes we came out on top. Cheerleaders don’t have a good rep as tough guys but we were as entertaining as possible. We got in the ring with some of the greatest – Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper – which only helped.”

Overcoming the Perception of Steroids in Wrestling:

“It is because we’ve gone from the big burly guys who eat hotdogs and live a rough lifestyle to wrestlers who are all health nuts and work out every day. We’re constantly tested and there are measures to make sure we’re all safe and healthy. I hope that perception changes because we’re highly tuned athletes.”
