WWE Star Says Tommy Dreamer Compared Him To Robert Roode In TNA WWE

A WWE star says Tommy Dreamer compared him to Robert Roode in TNA.

Dolph Ziggler has already had a remarkable career as a former multi-time world champion and putting on several memorable matches over the past 15 years.

Despite his accolades as a singles star, Ziggler has also achieved great success in tag team action. From introducing Big E to the main roster to re-introducing Drew McIntyre, Dolph has showed he can do it in any form of competition.

Ziggler’s most successful pairing has to be with Robert Roode with the duo capturing both the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships.

Speaking on Andy’s Hall Access, the Raw star was asked if he prefers singles or tag team matches. Ziggler answered:

“It depends. I got in such a mode of just thinking about me and my opponent, and that was it, or maybe an aspect on the outside like Vickie Guerrero.”

“I was so locked in of going, ‘If I want to be the best, be a star, standout, I have to do my own thing.'”

“I got to the point where so many years went by, and I got paired up with Drew McIntyre and went, ‘Oh God, I’m paired up with this jacked dude, I’m going to be eating all these kicks, and I’m not getting anywhere.'”

“It turned out to be one of the coolest things ever and it helped him, helped me. We got to do some really fun stuff, some great work.”

Reflecting on his partnership with Robert Roode, Ziggler revealed that Tommy Dreamer was the first to tell him about Roode. Dolph stated:

“Then, more recently, I got to tag with Robert Roode, who was basically, I was told by Tommy Dreamer,

‘He’s basically you from this other company to where you can put the show on his back, he can steal the show, he can fight for the World Title, he can open the show, he can do everything there is, he can talk, and he’s a real pro.'”

Despite Dreamer’s glowing praise for Roode, Dolph admitted he wasn’t sure what he was going to do. He said:

“Even then I was like, ‘Ah, I’m in a tag team, what am I going to do?'”

“It ended up being one of the coolest things ever, and we’re buddies for it now because we both want what’s best for the show and we can make it happen no matter who the opponents are.”

“It’s nice to have that break and have that difference where you can make stuff happen even if you didn’t plan on it being what you wanted to do.”
