Since joining the WWE several years ago, Dolph Ziggler has been a major part of the company. For much of the time, he has been a top-billed superstar. According to an interview with The Sun, Ziggler believes the brand split has worked wonders for him.
I said the brand split would be a chance for a lot of up-and-coming guys to get a chance to be on television, get a few minutes of microphone time or introduce themselves. I didn’t see it happening for me but it has actually given me a chance to be myself and not memorise something or say a catchphrase. It has been real and reinvented me.”
