Wrestleview.com’s Adam Martin joined “The Shark Show” on 94.1 KRNA on Wednesday (2/26) with host the Shark to talk with WWE star Dolph Ziggler about the launch of the WWE Network, Hulk Hogan’s return, concussions and WWE in Cedar Rapids this Saturday.
On Hulk Hogan’s return to WWE during the 2/24 RAW:
“Hulkster came out, the roof came unglued, as a fan I couldn’t believe he was back here working for the same company that I work for. Every year I see him on something else and he looks exactly the same. He’s like our Dick Clark.”
On the launch of the WWE Network this week:
“We’re all excited for it. We know that, you know, you’re always waiting to see what happens and waiting to see how this goes. We’ve been preparing for it for literally years. We’ve been doing interviews for years to get shows ready. Whatever happens Pay Per View wise, we know that no matter what we do, as long as we put out a great product, so many of the WWE Universe want to be part of this because it’s affordable, because of everything that it offers. I think it’s going to be great for everybody.”
On suffering two concussions in one year:
“I think the concern comes getting one and coming back too quickly while you’re still damaged. WWE has been so in depth and so over the top with protecting everyone that even when I was medically cleared, they still waited much longer to make sure I was fully recovered. As far as we know, medically cleared for weeks before I ever got back in the ring to check it out. We go above and beyond knowing what we know now about concussions and if I had any concerns, there is no way in hell I’d be back in the ring. My brain is way too smart to get it ruined. We’ve taken precautions and I took my sweet time getting back in that ring and now I feel like a million bucks.”
Ziggler also talks about working with Big E in WWE, wrestling fans using “insider” terms around him, working with AJ Lee and his thoughts on crowds taking over WWE events.
Wrestleview.com would like to thank 94.1 KRNA for having us on the show this week.
