Dolph Ziggler Says His Chants Were Edited From SmackDown
Dolph Ziggler noted on Twitter today that WWE edited out chants for him from the SmackDown broadcast:
It’s not uncommon for WWE to manipulate the crowd noise for SmackDown, since it’s a taped show. They’ve often piped in better reactions to make the audience seem more enthusiastic, but it’s rare that they do the opposite.
It’s no secret that Ziggler feels he should be higher up the card, so this could be their way of telling him toe the line. That or they’re really running with the disgruntled storyline that’s been developing in his promos.
Hulk Hogan On Improved Relationship With McMahon
In a new interview with WWE.com Hulk Hogan discussed his improved relationship with Vince McMahon and how his return came about:
Over the last couple years, there’ll be texts between Vince and I. “Happy birthday brother!” on August 24th, his birthday. Christmas, Thanksgiving. We’ll touch base like that. And then I guess the word got out that I was jobless. I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was thinking of going back to playing music or something. On a Tuesday, I was officially out of work. And Friday morning I was drinking my coffee and I hear my cell phone. And it was Triple H. “Hey brother, just checking on you.” I’m like, “Hey, dude, I’m just contemplating my navel here. I’m officially out of work, I’m unemployed.” And that started us talking. In my heart, I was hoping to come back here. I was hoping to put the period on the end of the sentence and it was the logical extension. It just made so much sense to come back.
