AEW manager and producer Arn Anderson recently spoke about WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler on the latest episode of his Arn Show podcast. The Enforcer reveals that Ziggler was never afraid to voice his opinion backstage, but no matter what would go out and give 100% everytime. Anderson even questions why Ziggler was never pushed as a top act in the company.
Dolph had an opinion and he would voice it. The guy worked his ass off and once we got to gorilla, no matter if he agreed to what was going on or what, he would go out and give you 100%. I’m a big fan of Dolph Ziggler’s. I think he’s one of those guys, you may b—h about him when he’s on the card and I’m sure a lot of guys, the higher ups and certainly the boss got tired of dealing with him but the fact of the matter is he’s right a lot of the time. He’s been one of those performers over years that made everybody better than what they were. The question as to why he wasn’t one of the top top guys, I don’t have the answer. It certainly wouldn’t have bothered me at all.
Anderson believes that if Ziggler ever walks away from the company it will be on his own terms, with a good deal of money stored up.
Dolph is a wealthy man who’s made a lot of money for a long time while not being in the top spot, but I got a feeling Dolph’s frugal. He’s made some investments, he’s smart and one day he’s going to say ‘You want to give me some more s–t about something else? You know what, see ya’ and he’ll thump down the steps, take off his boots and you’ll never hear from him again. And he will have accomplished what he wanted to in the business and left on his own terms.
