Dolph Ziggler Discusses His Upcoming Program With Chris Jericho, How He Feels About The Crowd Support He Has Recently Received, More

IGN has a new interview up with “Mr. Money in the Bank” Dolph Ziggler. In the interview, Ziggler discusses the Money in the Bank ladder match, his backstage mentors, hosting WWE Download, and more.

In the following excerpt, Ziggler discusses his confrontation with Chris Jericho and where it may be heading:

I don’t know where we’re going to go with it right now. He came out on Monday and interrupted me and…you know, believe it or not, whenever I get to talk, I also just get to tell the truth. Mick Foley came out a few months ago and all I did was tell the truth about him. Jericho came out and interrupted me, which was a very Jericho thing to do, and it was supposed to be my big moment. I was just finally grabbing the mic for the third time in years. And I was a huge fan of his when I was growing up, but all I did was tell the truth and ask him ‘When’s the last time you won something? Or did something important?’ And now I would love to see what he has to say back to me on Monday. Because I left him speechless. I’m the first guy in forever to do that.”

Ziggler also discusses the “Let’s Go Dolph!” chants that have recently appeared in the following excerpt:

“I’m a little torn about it because on one hand that means I’m not doing my job and selling myself as a bad guy. But for some reason, the people at our arena shows and our live events and Pay-Per-Views are rooting for me, I would have to say, because I’m just really good at what I do. Whether I win or lose or whether I’m a good guy or a bad guy.”

    The future.

    In character then out of character?

  • Chapinb0yy

    Well he sure does his job in the ring. Just needs to work better as a bad guy. Or just turn face.

    • BigMike

      nonono he isnt doing ANYTHING wrong that's the point his work has got him to the point he is a heel that gets face pop like Orton and Austin who was the first .its called the fan's showing respect the PEOPLE can turn you face without you doing anything different like they did Austin

  • havoc525

    He’s the guy that fans want to replace Orton. Remember, the more people were supposed to hate Orton, the move the fans came to him.

  • kevin

    I hate him as much as cena. He’s boring over sells everything, no promo skills, and every time he throws a punch kick or dropkick you can see him hit himself for the sound effect. He’s the future cena II god help us. When he turns face and you know he will you will all jump on the I hate ziggler fan club.

    • Eric

      You must be a santino fan . Ziggler is the best in the wwe.

    • Patrick Peralta

      Are you kidding Ziggler has improved since his Spirit Squad days is currently the best at taking bumps…..has put on some great matches and proven he can be a main eventer and is good on the mic ……..Hell I'm a Cena Fan one of the few Adult fans who is. and Ziggler is way better then Cena at this time Heel or future Face Ziggler has worked hard for this push.

      The only thing he needs to do is brake off from Vickie.. he doesn't need her anymore.

  • Thumpa

    It’s called perfect selling, not over selling. Dolph is going to be huge, he’s getting there already.

  • Jake

    I don't understand, Ziggler has all the reactions needed to be a face but is being pushed as a heel… The way I see it, you should build upon what you're given. In this case you have a great performer who is over with the people but is being used to achieve just the opposite reaction. To sum it up, I think turn Jericho heel, ziggler face.

  • Jman72485

    Dolph is great in the ring and I think the fans are responding in such, I know I am. Also remember all the y2j chants jericho was getting. So if this fued does keep going, the roles could go either way. Just that they gatta figure out who’s gonna be the heel and face…

    • Jman72485

      I think Jericho might come out the face on this one though, since people have been cheering him on since he came back in january

  • Bryan

    I would like to see Ziggler as a tweener, not really a full blown face OR a full blown heel…just kinda does his own thing and doesnt really fit in with the "good guys" or the "bad guys". Clearly he is over with the fans, he's going to be a huge star.

  • Thomas

    Ziggler is one of the best superstars they have right now. Very sound in the ring, explosive on the mic, not the greatest of all times but still pretty good and he just has the look of a heel. That was the idea to begin with. A cocky arrogant guy but who can back it up. Could Ziggler be a face? He could…but he does better as a heel which sucks because I enjoy cheering for him.

    Either way, hes got the briefcase he's going to be champion, how or when? We'll see what happens.

  • Dave Barton

    Were Austin, Rock, or Guerrero not doing their jobs as heels? All 3 of them became too popular because they were such strong talents & the fans turned them babyface. Don’t worry about it Dolph, the fans are cheering because you’ve proven yourself to be too talented to boo…you’re in fine company!

  • BigMike

    No Dolph it does NOT mean ur not doing ur job as a heel it means that you are going into the gray area of faces and heels where you can be a complete heel with your words and actions and get a face pop like Austin was the first he was a full on heel and was getting cheered the PEOPLE made him face so take it as a compliment and a show of respect for your work
