Dolph Ziggler recently gave an interview on Wrestling Inside the Ropes where he talked about how much he would want to face Kofi Kingston during WrestleMania.
According to Ziggler, he is confident that he and Kingston could have a WrestleMania match that would steal the show but he maintains that there needs to be a good story behind the match.
“The fans know he can do, I know what he can do, we had a best-out-of-500 series for about five years, five years ago. I know how good he is and what kind of matches we can have, if there’s a story there. For years we never had any story it was just like, ‘Hey, there’s two guys who will have a good match’ and they would put us out there a bunch,” said Ziggler.
Speaking of the current “KofiMania”, Ziggler said that, it’s not just the WWE Universe that is behind Kofi, but also the locker room as they “know what he’s done over the years”.
Elaborating on his “storyline” WrestleMania match with Kingston, Ziggler names himself the “bad guy” in the potential feud.
“I would love to see him come within an inch of becoming World Champion and I screw him out of it and then have us fight for it or something” said Ziggler.
Ziggler also talked about his Money In The Bank cash in to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion back in 2013. According to Ziggler, he was never really told when he would cash in and just tended to be on standby for the moment.
If he had had the choice, however, he probably would have chosen to cash in during WrestleMania, in response to a crowd that was chanting his name during the world title match between Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger.
“The night before at ‘Mania, I was also sitting by waiting just in case they say, ‘Hey, grab Dolph, we’re going with this’ because we do fly by the seat of our pants,” Ziggler said.
“And I did hear those reactions—where during a World Title match that I wasn’t involved in—75,000 people were chanting my name and I go, ‘Man, maybe Vince is gonna say let’s go for it right here,’ so that’s why I stayed and I was a little disappointed when nothing happened. But the next night was amazing,” he recalls.
