WWE’s Money in the Bank briefcase holder Dolph Ziggler is interviewed in the February 2013 issue of WWE Magazine and spoke about a number of topics, including what’s holding him back in WWE and which WWE superstar pushes him to keep improving.
Ziggler said, “I don’t listen, to a point where if I think something’s right, I’ll go ahead and do it anyway, and it’ll be the wrong thing to do. That’s what’s holding me back. I tell myself how great I am, but sometimes I’m wrong. Some people have been here a lot longer, and sometimes they’re going to be right, and damn it, I’m going to have to pay attention to that.”
John Cena is currently his top rival in WWE, but Ziggler gave props to Cena and admitted that he’s the wrestler that pushes him to keep improving.
“No matter who’s champ, he’s the franchise.” Ziggler said. “When you’re out there with him, it’s a different kind of ballgame. We are two opposite people and I can’t say that enough, and sometimes I hate his guts so much that even when I’m at home, I want to beat him up. We do not see things the same way, but we both have the same goal.”
