Eric Bischoff on WWE's Dolph Ziggler


In an interview with talkSPORT, Eric Bischoff spoke about a myriad of topics. During the conversation, the former WWE RAW GM compared Dolph Ziggler to WWE Hall Of Famer, Kurt Angle. This is what he had to say,

“Let me just say there are four or five people in WWE, I’ll mention one, who I talked about long before I went back to WWE, and that’s Dolph Ziggler. Dolph Ziggler is a phenomenal performer, I’ve said that a million times in a bunch of interviews.
Dolph Ziggler is a character, much like Kurt Angle, that can be very comedic and funny, he’s got great comic timing, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, he allows himself to be put in situations, sometimes for comic relief or the benefit of somebody else.
That’s depth in a character and a talent. And for that reason, I would put Dolph Ziggler on the top of my list.”

It is no secret that Eric Bischoff is a huge fan of Dolph Ziggler. He was nothing but praise for the Showoff during the interview. He spoke about Ziggler's attitude to the business and the immense amount of talent the WWE Superstar contains.
