Dolph Ziggler spoke with The Phoenix New Times to promote tonight's SmackDown taping in Phoenix. We are looking for correspondents for tonight's show, so if you are attending it, please contact us by clicking here. Below are a few highlights:
If he is looking to working with Tyler Breeze:
"I look forward to anything, any kind of challenge, anybody new coming to the roster, anybody that wants to say, "Hey, I'm better than you" or younger or faster. Well, let's see what you got and let's see if you can hang with me. I'm someone who's very open to new challenges, down to do whatever. And it seems like he's pretty good, good head on his shoulders, seems like he knows what he's doing and he's been working really hard for a long time. He used to pick my brain, actually. So I gave him a couple pointers and I hope he can hang in the ring with me, and if he can, he'll be on his way to a hell of a start."
If John Cena's role in Trainwreck is inspired by Ziggler's past relationship with Amy Schumer:
"I honestly don't know. You'd have to ask her. She was writing some stuff a long time ago. She was always working really hard at it and really good at it and funny, so... maybe it was."
If his start and stop pushes have motivated him to work harder:
"I mean, everything I do motivates me to work harder, whether I'm champion and can't defend it or lose the first time I get it, or win Survivor Series and just have to work my way back up from the bottom. It's anything. That's how the business goes. It's ups and downs, just like the entertainment industry. You want to be on top, you want to be the best, and if you're not there, you're striving to get there. And everything that's happened is always driving me to be better. And when you know you're as good as I am, you know its going work out one way or the other. The cream rises to the top. If you're good, you're good, and you're going to be."
Ziggler also discussed living in Phoenix and if he bumps into Daniel Bryan, performing stand-up comedy, if he will turn heel anytime soon and much more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
