Dolph Ziggler is a veteran in WWE, so he has noticed how Superstars react around certain Superstars. He recently talked about one particular Superstar.
Ziggler spoke to Sports Illustrated, where he talked about Randy Orton’s match at Backlash. He mentioned Orton is so good that it “pisses” him off. However, he is not scared of mentioning Orton’s mistakes whenever he makes one. He claims other Superstars are afraid of calling out Orton’s mistakes.
I’ll address them in reverse order. I don’t watch wrestling, so I didn’t see their match. But it was friggin’ amazing to be there backstage. I don’t have any ass to kiss here, I have no horse in the game, but these two are two of my favorites. One, because I know a lot of people hate Randy because he’s so damn good. It’s amazing. I’ll be watching Raw, and say, “Damnit, he does this better than anyone.” It makes me so mad. There are only a handful of true naturals, and he is one, and I hate that. So when Randy messes up, I call him out on it. A lot of people are afraid to do that, and that’s fine, but he won’t hear the end of it from me. But good god, no one is as good as he is, and that really pisses me off.
Orton has a history of anger issues backstage and him begin a veteran naturally makes younger Superstars hesitant to call out his mistakes.
With Ziggler being on RAW again, we might see a program between the two eventually.
