Mike Jones (who?) interviewed Dolph Ziggler to promote Sunday's WWE live event from the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. While Ziggler was clearly working in the interview, his comments about Randy Orton could be more legitimate than one may think. Below is a paraphrased excerpt:
If you've been familiar with WWE for the last 10 years or so you would understand that without Triple H coming out front and coming out and saying, 'this is our face no matter what, we're behind him.' If you've been watching the last 10 years or so, you would already know they [WWE] already made their mind up about him [Orton] a long time ago. No matter what he does. Good or bad they're behind him and they will go out of their way to cut people's legs out from underneath them to make sure Randy comes out looking great. So the fact that's now out in the open and I'm allowed to comment on it, it actually kind of makes me sick. I'm really happy for Randy. He's awesome, he's so good at this it makes me mad how good he is. But the opportunities that he gets over and over again make that chip on my shoulder seem that much bigger to me.
This comes after our report from earlier this week that Ziggler is in the WWE doghouse due to a rumored incident/confrontation with Orton.
