The Mirror recently interviewed Dolph Ziggler, who was promoting the WWE tour of the UK, which kicks off at the end of this week. Below are a couple of highlights:

Stating on Talking Smack that his match at No Mercy with The Miz should have closed the show:

"I didn't make that remark because I'm a fan of myself and thought this should be the main event - by the way if you're a superstar that's how people should think anyway every day - as a businessman and someone who loves the business and loves watching wrestling and enjoying the show, the emotion that was set up for months and years into that match, that's what made it the main event, no matter where you put it on the show. If anyone wants to argue with me, go to town."

If he had thought about leaving WWE over the past couple of years:

"I've been genuinely thinking that for about two years now. You know, whether your contract is up, paperwork wise, and whether it timed with how this all worked out or not, WWE is a business but [WWE chairman] Vince McMahon is still a human being and if I went to him and said I need to leave because I can't be here anymore because I can't go any higher on the card, I believe he would understand that and let me go. I could go and do other things I have been very fortunate to build a small, stand-up little set and any chance I get I have been very fortunate to be on shows I don't deserve to be on, but it's fun and I've been a student of it for 20 years. Also in the last six months or so going on Fox News and Fox Business, being able to talk politics, which I know like the back of my hand because I study it, I write about it every day and I have lots of ideas about, I have things in my back pocket. But I am still prepared to be the best WWE Superstar I can be. If I cannot be the best or operate at the best highest level, then I need to go away."

Ziggler also discussed his relationship with Vince McMahon, helping bring prestige back to the Intercontinental Championship, the brand extension and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
