Yell off. There are a lot of wrestlers in WWE and a good chunk of them have been around for a very long time. Some of them are much more tenured than others and that can give them a variety of different experiences. Some of these things are better than others as they can be either successful or more of a problem, which can do anything from cause someone to leave the company or just give you a funny story. Thankfully the latter is true here and gives us a glimpse into the mind of one Vince McMahon.
Dolph Ziggler has been a part of WWE since 2006 when he debuted as Nicky in the Spirit Squad. This came after several years down in the Ohio Valley Wrestling developmental territory where Ziggler wrestled under the name of Nick Nemeth. Ziggler has gone on to become a multiple time World Champion while also holding several other titles. He has been around for a long time, but that does not make him immune to McMahon’s anger.
Ziggler already has a history with the McMahon family. Check out his issues with some of them:
Ziggler was recently interviewed by the United Kingdom’s TalkSport and talked about a moment where McMahon yelled at him in the Gorilla Position. During an unspecified show, Ziggler went too long during a promo and McMahon yelled at him when he came to the back. McMahon said something to the effect of this not being the Attitude Era anymore and Ziggler can’t just take as long as he wants. Ziggler yelled back at him, though things were smoothed over and everything appears to be fine.
Opinion: This isn’t the most surprising detail as McMahon has a tendency to snap over just about anything. That is the kind of thing that would happen with McMahon at almost any given time and Ziggler seems no different than anyone else. It also doesn’t seem to be anything out of the ordinary and thankfully it seems to have already been cleared up. Ziggler may not be the most popular star in the world but he seems to be one of the boys here and that is fine.
What is next for Ziggler? Will he ever be World Champion again? Let us know in the comments below.
