Dolph Ziggler's response to Triple H turning heel and costing Daniel Bryan the WWE championship at SummerSlam


"You know I've always said, people ask me 'how do I be a WWE superstar?' I've always said, first and foremost, be tall. And that's always been a big point to Vince (McMahon) and seems to be Hunter now, too. Daniel Bryan's got a chip on his shoulder just like I do, I just carry it a lot better because I look this good. But the fact that he can carry himself in the ring with anybody is great. Sometimes, no matter how good you are, the machine is that much stronger than you are."

That's Ziggler talking to WWE.com in the aftermath of Triple H costing Bryan the title by giving him a pedigree and allowing Randy Orton to cash in his Money in the Bank contract to win the WWE title Bryan had just won from John Cena. DTA, folks, and try to be tall if you want to succeed in WWE.
