"As a fan growing up, that's something cool, but I've come to this conclusion that I'm this hardened— wanting to be the best," Ziggler said. "Talking about it all the time. It's one thing to talk about it and it's another thing to do it. I get a chance to back it up tonight, all the things I've said for years. And I wouldn't have it any other way than to going against an Olympic Gold Medalist to start it."
