During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler talked about his recent return after an almost three month hiatus.
Though Ziggler returned to feud with the current WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, he named another current WWE Superstar as someone he’s hoping to work with, now that he’s back.
According to Ziggler, he would like to have a long storyline and rivalry against AJ Styles as he thinks it would be a good showcase of both of their mat-wrestling ability.
“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,” noted Ziggler.
Santino Marella To Help Launch Canadian Version of NXT?
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, talks are being held about launching a Canadian version of NXT, and former WWE superstar Santino Marella could be playing an important role in the new brand.
It is being reported that WWE is going to hold a series of tryout camps at the Paramount Fine Foods Center in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The camps will be from August 7 to August 9, right before SummerSlam in Toronto.
Mississauga is Santino’s home city and he currently runs his own wrestling school and promotion, Battle Arts Academy and Battle Arts Pro Wrestling, there.
This would be the first time that the WWE will have tryouts in Canada as previously, Canadian talents would come to tryouts at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
