Dolph Ziggler On His Lack Of Patience, What Drives Him In WWE

Dolph Ziggler did an interview with MLive.com and the always outspoken Ziggler had some quotable highlights. They are as follows:

Lack of patience:

“I’ve made it clear; I’m not patient at all – several times. I’ve been very vocal about my position on the card and in the company. I’m not trying to say ‘Hey, everybody sucks and I’m great!’ But I love doing this, and at some point you go ‘OK, It’s not my time right now and I got to figure something out’ And when it’s time, that’s when I must go out there and make as huge of an impact as I can and let everyone know ‘I dare you to follow that, I dare you try something better.’

And when they don’t (counter or match what I’m doing in the ring) I’m very outspoken about it and it can get me into very hot water (with the company). Then you never know where we’re going. Everybody can be just so outspoken about taller guys, and guys like Randy Orton being the face of the WWE, the WWE Championship. I dare you to put me in a back alley with Randy Orton or someone like that. I guarantee I’m not afraid of someone taller.”

What drives him:

“I’m always trying to make myself a better sports entertainer. I’m always trying to find out why people cheer at certain times. I love this, I love doing this. I have no desire to switch companies or go to UFC or anything like that. As of right now, working on the entertainment aspect is my favorite thing to do, my favorite hobby right now (he does stand-up comedy on the side). I’m very ambitious, and I’m very outspoken about where I should be and where I need to be in the WWE. I love that I’ve never been one handed anything – ever. If I would’ve have been handed things, I don’t know if I would’ve been able to enjoy it as much. Every time I turn a corner, it seems like the rug is being taken underneath me. It’s like ‘Hey, great job!’ and then nothing. It’s like ‘Hey, wow, look what you can do!’ and I’ll say ‘Thanks, boss!’ and then there’s nothing. And so, it’s hard (to stay upbeat), but you have to deal with it and it makes me hungrier every single day knowing that I’ve scratched and clawed for everything I’ve earned in this business.”

    I love reading dolph’s interviews where he bad mouths orton, Orton is a jerk who is holding ziggler back, i blame orton for everything bad in zigglers life including that conclusion he got, it wouldnt surprise me one bit if orton paid off swagger to give ziggler that concussion in the 1st place. i would to see zigglrr whoop that trick orton in real life, ziggler is man on a mission who ain’t scared of nobody and i don’t blame him for not going too ufc, why should he mess up that pretty face of his even thoughhe not scared of nobody taller. zigglrr rules and Orton sucks

    I wish Chris Jericho would pull Ziggler aside and give him a good ol’ “Would you please just shut the hell up!” You want to get where you think you should be, Dolph? Spend less time bitching to the media and spend more time honing your craft and otherwise being an asset to the WWE.
