Mark Suleymanov of The Inquisitr recently interviewed Dolph Ziggler. They sent us these highlights:
"First of all, McGregor's comments were probably just trying to get more people to watch his pay-per-view [fight vs. Nate Diaz at UFC 202]. That's great, that's smart. Whether it's a joke or not, you act serious, then we take it seriously. If I wanted to get people to watch SummerSlam, I wouldn't badmouth somebody's life choices for the last 10 years. Flair, I grew up watching him and all the hard work he put in and to kinda it a joke and say those guys aren't tough? Those guys are some of the toughest guys I've met in my entire life and a lot of them are behind-the-scenes and I look up to a lot of them. I made a little joke back that said 'yeah, I'm one of the smaller guys on the roster and if I lost 40 or 50 pounds, I'd still be bigger than him.' So even if he's really good at what he does – which I'm sure he is – I'm also really good at what I do, I just happen to do it and get punched in the face a lot less for real."
His future after SummerSlam:
"Whether this is my shot right now and then this is it, I will make the most of it because any position I'm in, I've always done that. That's why fans, for some reason, for the last 10 years, are behind me, whether I lose every single night or not."
