Dolph Ziggler talks about Triple H's latest promotion.
Dolph Ziggler is a WWE veteran, having been a part of the main roster for the better part of the last two decades. Over the course of that time, he has been a caddy and a male cheerleader, before becoming the Dolph Ziggler that everybody knows today. In 2006, during his time as a member of the Spirit Squad, Ziggler worked very closely with Shawn Michaels and Triple H, the two men in charge of the direction of all WWE brands.
Speaking about Triple H’s new role as the man in control of WWE creative, Dolph Ziggler told Baby Huey of the In The Kliq podcast that he is the perfect person for the job, recalling Triple H helping him during his time in the Spirit Squad
“Triple H has been in the system from start to finish, helping young guys out in NXT, helping us out backstage, hell, even when I was in the Spirit Squad 15 years ago, he and Shawn Michaels were helping us out,” Ziggler began. “So I think it's a great fit. That's the guy to do it. It'll be a fun way to just switch things up a little bit for us. But I mean, we're surrounded by some of the greatest minds in the world. We're very lucky, my — I would say, teammates, because we all kind of work together to put on this awesome show. There's something special about having all this talent, all these Superstars, all these great minds behind the scenes, and when it comes together as this group effort, it can become something special. It's the greatest thing in the freakin’ world when it goes great for us.”
Asked whether or not he has been able to talk with Triple H since his latest rise to power, Dolph Ziggler said his door is always open but Mondays and Fridays can be the most hectic days of the week.
Ziggler also noted that while he personally feels like he hasn't seen a great deal of change, there is an air of excitement in the locker room and he believed that with the team they have, anything can be accomplished.
“I haven't really noticed anything different. Everyone's like, ‘Oh, cool. We have someone else who's calling the shots.’ But, it's still all this group/team effort where everyone's pitching an idea. Like I said a second ago, there are so many awesome minds behind the scenes that help us out with things,” said Dolph. “There's a reason that some of us, even myself 18 years in, can come out looking good every night and make something happen, have some story advance or make some match awesome. It's not just because we're great. We have these minds behind the scenes. So we're all waiting, like, ‘Hey, is this going to be different, are things going to change?’ What's happened is I haven't noticed anything personally, I just think we've had a really fun time and it stayed a group effort and I really think that when you have this team put together like we do, behind the scenes and in front of the camera, that we can do anything.”
