Dolph Ziggler has recalled the outrageous gear he wore for one match before being told he could never use it again.
Former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler is well-known for trying to stand out from the crowd with everything from his moves, to his personality and even his ring gear.
Speaking on ‘The Archive of B-Sox‘, Ziggler recalled a time where he went too far with his gear, resulting in him being told in no uncertain terms to never wear it again.
“I like leopard print. I got snow leopard gloves, a snow leopard vest, snow leopard trunks, and I got the craziest, biggest purple-orange spray tan you could ever get, and I bleached my hair fresh the night before. I go, ‘This is so outlandish and douchey. It’s gonna be great.’”
Dolph Ziggler went on to have a great bout against John Morrison, but it turned out the outfit was a bit too outlandish.
“I got to wrestle John Morrison, one of my best friends, and we had such a blast beating the hell out of each other, and I came to the back and, in words I can’t repeat, I was told that this would never be worn again. ‘Great match, don’t ever do that again.’ ‘Okay, I got it, thank you.’”
The match itself took place at Hell in a Cell 2009 and can be seen below.
