Video: Dolph Ziggler talks being better than Miz and headlining WrestleMania next year

WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler talks to a WOIO about a list of assorted topics. Among the things covered in the above video:

-- Being so much better than the Miz in basically everything they do. That's no dig at Miz, just the truth. Ziggler is awesome during this portion of the interview.

-- Learning from Jim Ross to "maximize my minutes" on television every week, no matter what gimmick he's saddled with or who he's working with each week.

-- Not liking the idea behind the Spirit Squad and not necessarily wanting to be a part of it but going with it because he had to have some trust in Vince McMahon based on his track record.

-- Vickie talks about the heat she gets everywhere she goes, saying it motivates her to do an even better job.

-- The origin of "EXCUSE ME" is explained. Turns out, Vickie forgot her promo and used it to buy herself some time to try to remember. It got her a ton of heat, Vince loved it, and they've been running with it ever since.

-- Ziggler saying everyone is going to watch WrestleMania 28 this year because of John Cena, The Rock, Undertaker, Triple H and Shawn Michaels but he'll be the one to steal the show. He's looking forward to those matches but he wants everyone to leave thinking about how good his match was.

-- His show on YouTube is discussed briefly, as well as the wildly popular "Are You Serious" show. Ziggler opens up on a few past bits that made him ask that question.

-- The idea behind changing his hair to the color brown. The experiement was done to see if he could get over as a more serious wrestler who could win the title as a veritable main eventer. It failed miserably and he's never going back to it.

It's a good interview and even when they're not on television together, he and Vickie have solid chemistry. Thoughts on his various points? Any chance in hell he headlines 'Mania next year?
