• SmackDown Star Wanted To Be Removed From WWE For A Long Time

During a recent appearance on the All Things Wrestling Radio podcast, SmackDown Live Superstar Dolph Ziggler talked about how he wanted to be removed from WWE programming for a long time as he thought he didn’t belong on the show.

Below is what he said:

“I will say that I really begged and pleaded for a couple months off the television show because no matter how good I am or what I’m up to, it seems that 99 times out of 100 I would lose. I didn’t think that I deserved to be on the TV show if I was someone that was losing every night, so I asked to be taken off. I was hoping for maybe six months or a year and it ended up being four weeks.”
