Ziggler 'A Little Mad' About The Rock's Return, Hopes Main Event Gets Booed
"I don't want the cheers and the boos. I hope it's 90% boos letting them know that this "Once in a Lifetime" match is happening again and that I or someone else should be the main event. But, that's the great thing about the WWE Universe. They get to voice their opinions, they get to show their signs. And whether they like something or hate it, you're going to hear about it. I'm excited to hear it."
Ziggler was asked if he's had any interactions with The Rock since he's been back:
"We've had a couple of quick talks here and there. He's usually pretty busy just like all of us when he gets here. He's been pretty cool about everything. And it was pretty neat, he told me he liked my work which is a pretty cool deal because you know he's watching the shows when he's traveling. Like I said, having him back, it makes me a little mad. But, I love the business sense of it, having him come back and getting the crowd behind him. When he's promoting movies, we're holding down the fort, waiting for him to come back."
He also discussed conversations he's had with Big E. about competing on such a big stage and if there are concerns about nerves:
"Of course there is, and honestly even for me, I've been around and been at Wrestlemanias and been in front of 70,000 people, it's not something you can prepare for. The last couple of weekends I've been sitting him down and having some good talks with him. This is a big deal just to be on this card. There are a lot of deserving Superstars who aren't going to be on this Wrestlemania. I feel like I should always be in the main event, but I am excited and happy to be in a match. Just to be there is a big step. Now I have to get it into his head that you don't want to freeze up, you don't want to freak out. It all comes down to having me as a mentor for him, and he's been listening. I think he's going to be great out there."
