Dolph Ziggler 'Jealous' Of Those Who Competed At Backlash, Praises AEW's Success

Dolph Ziggler has admitted on Twitter that he was jealous of those who got the chance to be part of the raucous Backlash premium live event this weekend in Puerto Rico. Ziggler wasn't part of the show itself, but clearly was impressed by what he saw from not only his fellow WWE Superstars, but also the fans in attendance. 

"Jealous of anyone involved with backlash last night, behind the scenes, in the ring & in the crowd," he tweeted. "This business can be absolutely beautiful, sometimes." 

The event has been highly praised online by fans, with the WWE Universe being particularly impressed by the live crowd who provided great reactions throughout the night with big reactions for the likes of Bad Bunny, Zelina Vega, and the surprise return of Carlito amongst others. The show was headlined by Cody Rhodes defeating Brock Lesnar, while The Usos and Solo Sikoa were also victorious over Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Matt Riddle. 

Ziggler also took the time to praise AEW, where his brother Ryan Nemeth is employed, for the work that they have been putting together following the record-setting success of the All In ticket sales after the company sold over 60,000 without even announcing a single match. That's something that has had the entire wrestling world talking, and Ziggler highlighted how great of a time it is to be a fan of the industry regardless of what company people choose to support. 

"Hats off to Jacksonville, for crushing it too," Ziggler continued. "What a time to be a wrestling fan, I bet haha."
