Dolph Ziggler On Part Time Wrestlers, The Reaction To Sting In WWE 2K15, Does He Think CM Punk Will Ever Wrestle Again?

michael samDolph Ziggler recent did an interview with CBS Cleveland’s Chris Van Vliet while he was in his hometown, and talked about a number of topics, including Brock Lesnar not being on RAW every week, Sting being in WWE, and more. You can read a few excerpts below: 

Dolph Ziggler on part time wrestlers not being on RAW every week:

“Eight years ago, it would have made me really mad with Rock coming back and guys who come back just for WrestleMania. It’s a two part story. It makes me so mad that we can’t do a show without those guys. But here’s the business side: we need those guys to get eyes on a show that normally wouldn’t get them so you can see these up and coming guys so one day down the line in twenty years when I’m doing something else and they say, ‘Hey we need you to get on this card so we can highlight these twenty other guys who are up and coming.’ It’s a circle of life and a circle of business. If they weren’t making money, they wouldn’t keep doing it.”

Dolph on Sting being in WWE and the WWE 2K15 commercial:

“Just watching that commercial for 2K15 the first time it debuted, we were all like “Oh, is this the thing?!”. We were backstage and we crowded around the monitor to see a one second thing where they showed his mask and everyone flipped out because it’s that big of a deal. There are so few special things left that haven’t happened in this business so having Sting coming back no matter what he does, or if he comes back, just to have him show up one night would just blow the roof off for us backstage and for the fans of course.”

Dolph on CM Punk possibly returning to wrestling:

“I’ve always been told to never say never in this business or “this guy will never work here” but yet here they are. So you never know. So far of all the nevers I’ve ever heard none of them have ever stuck but you never know.”
