Sporting News: Dolph Ziggler talks ‘Swerved’ Season 2, upcoming brand split

It’s no secret that Dolph Ziggler enjoys a good laugh. The 12-year WWE veteran also is a stand-up comedian who works on the craft whenever he can find time away from his busy schedule, which is easier said than done.

It’s no surprise, then, that Ziggler is part of the WWE original comedy series “Swerved,” where he and other superstars play pranks on each other. Season 2 of “Swerved” will premiere Monday on the WWE Network on-demand immediately after “Raw,” with all nine episodes available for a binge watching session full of laughs. Sporting News spoke with Ziggler about the show, people who aren’t good at taking a joke, and why he is excited about the upcoming WWE brand split.

SPORTING NEWS: What is the biggest difference between this second season of “Swerved” compared to the first season?

DOLPH ZIGGLER: In Season 1, we had so many superstars on the edge of their seat every week at the television waiting to see who was going to get screwed with that day. And now, we’ve turned them all on our side. We’re using them as props in our evil genius of these pranks. Now, it’s more having some fun with the WWE superstars on our side having some fun at some fan’s expenses and, of course, at the end of the day, putting a smile on their face and having a blast.

SN: What was it like during Season 1, because so many guys didn’t see it coming and there were some pretty elaborate pranks?

DZ: (Laughs.) Yeah! There were tons of elaborate pranks, so much that it seemed like when we were pranking someone else, it was actually on you. There were so many different swerves. It came down to nobody trusted anybody. I would walk in some days and get a text message that said, “I don’t know if I’m involved with you today but stay the hell away from me.” Just from random people, random superstars and divas who didn’t want to be screwed with. Everybody was looking over their back, over their shoulder and didn’t trust anybody. Now, we’re using that to our advantage. We have superstars in different roles that you wouldn’t even recognize. They’re all on our side.

SN: How many people were flat-out scared during Season 1 and now want to be a part of the pranks?

DZ: That’s the thing. It becomes so screwed-up, you get so mad or scared or freaked out. And then when it’s all over with, you have a blast and go, “OK, I have the perfect idea to go get somebody else with this.” That just goes to show just how sadistic we all are at the end of the day but also great sports about it. No one has ever went too far with it. Anyone who got screwed with was so polite and, at the end of the day, would just go on to say, “All right, you got me. Let’s go get someone else.” Continue reading
