Where did your new, off-the-cuff, stream-of-consciousness promos come from?
I always kind of did my own thing, but it got me into trouble a lot, so I started listening to what people were telling me to do to show I was a team player. I got a lot of different advice in the meantime, to be monotonous on the mic and conversational, normal, but I don't want to do what everybody else does. So when I got on the mic, I'd talk fast, talk slow, make people think. And after a few weeks of following the rules, I was given a chance on the mic and told to sneak a couple of things in there that are really me. I'm finally coming into my own now, and if people don't like it, yell at me. But there's a reason I keep getting more and more time, and that's because I'm good at talking, at showing off. It's kind of my thing.
JR once told me, "Maximize your minute," and I live by that motto. If I have 30 seconds to make everyone remember what I do, I better make the most of it. With whatever time I'm given, I need to do something to stand out, to become a draw, so that the fans say, "Yeah, we came here to see John Cena, but damn, Dolph Ziggler's match was a clinic and it was awesome, and I was on the edge of my seat. So I'm coming back next time to see him." Now that I'm getting title matches and getting to step into the ring with some of the best competition there is, now I'm going to work hard to get my time in and show just how damn good I am.
