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

WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler 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.”

      When describing him you can’t help but start with “If I was gay….”

    I just wanna know why Ziggler has to job all the time while holding the MITB case. IK Bryan did it also but if WWE wants to make these guys humble they could just rehire the Iron Sheik and let these guys keep their momentum ;)

      because WWE writers are idiots and do not plan ahead for guys like Ziggler and Bryan. instead they make a copy of last years WM (Cena vs Rock) and, probably, we will see those two even third time in a lifetime next year. what was i saying? i just dont see any plan for Ziggler – i think that they make storylines up while they go. They do not have a schedule, like, Ziggler will cash in at X PPV and then feud with Y …

        I am fairly certain Vince not the writers is setting the WM card.
