WWE has a new article online featuring quotes from World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler discussing his concussion. The comments are troubling as Ziggler discusses significant memory loss from his concussion. Below are quotes from the champ:
“I didn’t even remember Monday until I watched Raw when I got home,”
“I don’t even remember traveling from Raw to SmackDown. I don’t remember Tuesday. I remember AJ and Big E taking me to the airport on Wednesday morning.”
"I was told I interfered in a match and tried to get my hands on a ladder," said Ziggler, piecing together the timeline. "When I bent over to grab it, Jack Swagger kicked me in the head.”
"I feel a lot better today," The Showoff told WWE.com of his recovery process. "Yesterday I had a bad headache. Today, I have a slight headache.”
“I didn’t know what day it was; I didn’t know what month it was.” he said. “I’ve had a couple of concussions before and just had a headache. I’ve never not remembered entire days, like someone in a movie.”
"When I asked, over and over, what happened, AJ told me that Swagger kicked me in the head,"
"Apparently, all I said was ‘classic Swags.’ As for Del Rio, even a zombified me is more charismatic than Del Rio. I don’t get him. Maybe because he’s closer to my Dad’s age."
