The Kingston Whig-Standard has a new article online featuring quotes from Dolph Ziggler to promote the WWE Smackdown live event in the city on September 9th. Below is an excerpt:
“Honestly, for years it was frustrating,” Ziggler said of the eight-plus year journey that has been his WWE career. “It just goes along with everything that has happened in my career. I plugged along to make my college wrestling team. I wasn’t recruited. And then when I made it, I became the best on the team to where I could get a scholarship. And I got a scholarship. Nothing has been handed to me no matter what I’ve done, in life or this business.
“As much as I wanted things to happen four and five years ago, I go ‘people have been handed things and it doesn’t always work out.’ No matter what, at the end of the day, I know that I have earned this, and anything that comes to me now, the fans, or the world, or anyone who just has an opinion can’t go ‘oh yeah, he was handed this,’ or ‘yeah, he had a great two months …’ I have been on a constant build, clawing or scratching for every inch I’ve ever gotten in this business and I continue to do it to this day.”
