Dolph Ziggler Says Kevin Owens Beating Him In 17 Seconds Helps KO More Than It Hurts Himself

Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV spoke to WWE fixture Dolph Ziggler for a new interview. You can check out the full interview above, and submitted highlights below.

On losing to Kevin Owens in 17 seconds and if it hurts Ziggler more or helps Owens more:

Cody Rhodes Reacts To AEW Signing Paul Wight (Big Show), Declares Whether He Will Be Face Or Heel

I think that helps him and he was in a position the last couple of months [that] he wasn't doing too much. He was just being Kevin Owens and being around. I know a lot of people are rooting for me or against me or don't care and that's fine but to be part of a catalyst that sent him into a different direction, as much as it kills me, I was happy to be a part of it. We could have done a 15-minute match, two-thirds of the way through that pay-per-view, where people were exploding through walls and going through tables and it would have been okay and fine. That was a special moment for Kevin Owens so I think that's better for the business and the company and the show.

On which WWE Superstar he would like to have a longer program with:

I would like to do something long-term with AJ Styles because we got to do a couple of live events and a couple of shows to where him and I said at the beginning 'We're just going to go amateur wrestling at the beginning.' So we just got to roll around to test each other out and feel it out.
