The Future Has Arrived - A Dolph Ziggler Diary -

The Future Has Arrived
A Dolph Ziggler Diary

This is an unorthodox B.T.B. Most B.T.B.'S are centered on a company and the booking of its branded shows. Most of the one's around here are about World Wrestling Entertainment and the booking of that company, some do T.N.A. and some others do their own promotion. This is different. This thread is centered on one wrestler in one company. It will be based off of him, basically a diary of his day and the encounters he has during the day. From traveling from state to state, doing house shows, the backstage encounters the wrestler goes throughout during his time and the matches he has. This company is World Wrestling Entertainment. Most of this is done in first person, where he is speaking, interacting and thinking in his mind. The wrestler I will be basing this diary off of is Dolph Ziggler. Dolph Ziggler is a current Smackdown! Superstar. I hope you enjoy! Comments greatly appreciated!!

Mr. Ziggler, Mr. McMahon is ready to see you." "You may go in now."

This could be it, Im done.

Vince McMahon: Hello Dolph, why don’t you sit down?

“I’m okay sir, if you don’t mind ill stand.”

Vince McMahon: Sit down dammit.

Oh god, what the hell did I do? He must think im not good enough? Oh shit don’t let this be the your fired meeting… “Yes sir”

Vince McMahon: What’s wrong kid? You like your about to shit yourself.

(Vince and Stephanie chuckle)

“Uhh im just a little nervous sir. The last time I ever was in here… I uhh got sent down to OVW”

Stephanie McMahon: Not this time Dolph, today’s meeting is to fill you in on what the current plans are for summerslam.

THANK GOD!! I’m not getting fired!! “Oh okay, good.” “So what are the plans?”

Stephanie McMahon: Right now we have you facing Rey Mysterio for the Intercontinental Championship. The current plans are for him to drop the belt to you.

Holy crap, im going to win my first title under the Ziggler persona. WOW! This is great! “Alright, sounds good to me”

Stephanie McMahon: Dolph this is big for you. This is your first title under this character. You know were looking for new stars to push to the main event and headline this company for years to come. Daddy and I think you can do it. This is your big chance…

Vince McMahon: Don’t screw it up kid. You could be performing in the match perfectly and one tiny screw up could ruin your career. This is the second biggest Pay-Per-View we have. This makes us A LOT of money. I think you can be a big player in this business. Don’t prove me wrong… Now get out, its lunch time.

“Yes sir, thank you so much for the opportunity.” “I won’t let you down.”

This is my first big break. I know I can do it. Time to hit the road; I have a house show tonight in Boston. I’m still in shock. Oh shit I gotta call pops, he’s gotta see me win the belt.

Re: The Future Has Arrived - A Dolph Ziggler Diary -

Eh.. it's different. Although, it reminds me of SmackDown! vs RAW, just without kayfabe, sort of. I don't know how I feel about it, I'll have to wait and see what your shows, or entries - whatever you want to call them, look like.

Re: The Future Has Arrived - A Dolph Ziggler Diary -

- August 16th -
- 1 PM -

Man that was a scary one. Here I am shitting myself thinking I'm gonna get fired or sent back down, and in the end I'm being told I'm going to win the Intercontinental Championship! It dosent get much better then this does it?

Here's my car. I tip valet guy 5 bucks. It's time to hit the road. I turn on the radio and listen to another Michael Jackson tribute. God does this shit ever end? Once again another Michael Jackson song... Alright nice the high way. I still got a long way to go from Stamford to Boston, but its alright...


- 7 PM -

I arrive at the arena just 45 mins. before the gates open. I get into gear when the agent walks in.

Agent: Hey Dolph, your on the card tonight.

"Oh, sweet Mike, who am I beating tonight?"

Agent: Uhh well your facing Mysterio tonight for the Intercontinental Championship, but your not winning.

"Yeah no surprise their. The baby faces always win." When I make it big one day, ill be winning in the house shows.

Agent: Alright its gonna be a quick match just around 8 mins. long. You guys can wing it all you want just go along with how he wants to do the finish.

" Ok, no problem, thanks Mike." "See you at the tunnel in a an hour or so."

I turn the other way and I hear footsteps. I turn around and its Rey Mysterio.

Rey Mysterio: What up hot shot? Looks like its me and you again tonight. You ready for a good one?

"Yeah sure." "We work well together in the ring." "We have solid chemistry."

Rey Mysterio: You sure its that? Or is it just me and my skills in the ring?

I chuckle...

Rey Mysterio: On a serious note kid... The reason im here is to discuss summerslam. I've been told im drooping the strap to you. Congrats kid, you deserve it. Your first one.

Uhh I did win one with spirit squad. Why dosen't anyone remember that? "Thanks man, its an honor to win it from a guy like you."

Rey Mysterio: Were going to be the third to last match on the card. Right after the Tag Team Titles. I heard Shaq may be interfering. That would be sweet. He's a real cool guy... Our match needs to be a good one. I want to put you over big time. But the issue is I need to drop the belt in a dirty fashion. Headquarters tell me that they don't know if Hardy's staying or not. So I'm gonna get moved up to the Main Event again to challenge Punk for his belt.

"Wow man!" "Congrats dude, you should have been up their all this time."

Rey Mysterio: Thanks kid. So how do you wanna end the match?

Hes asking me!?! WOW! I thought he'd decide how to end the match. This is sick! "Uhhh grabbing of the tights?"

Rey Mysterio: Nah dude, way to common. Lets do something really heelish and dirty to end this.

"How about the ref gets knocked out when I throw you into the ropes." "I bring in a chair, you dropkick me with the chair. We fight for a little." "I hit you with the chair, then connect with the Jumping Russian legsweep on the chair." "Throw the chair out of the ring, the ref wakes up and I pin you?" "How's that sound?"

Rey Mysterio: Sounds great kid. I like that. I'll run that by Vince on Tuesday at the taping... I gotta run and get changed. See you out their in a little.

"Alright, peace bro" This is amazing. I get to plan the finish at our match at Summerslam! This is a dream come true.


- 9 PM -

It's just around 9 PM and I go to the tunnel. Mike the agent, who by the way has a banging girlfriend. She gets around though I heard. She might need to take ride on the Ziggler express. I chuckle out loud. I need to focus. I'm going to be a champion soon. Mike the agent with the banging girlfriend lets me know the finish. Mysterio hits the 619 followed by the West Coast Pop. Obviously the finish. Oh well.

Justin Roberts: This bout is set for one fall. And it is for the intercontinental Championship. Introducing first the challenger from Hollywood, Florida. Weighing in at 225 pounds. Dolph Ziggler.

I walk out to the ring. Man this never gets old. Walking out to the ring getting major heat. I'm glad im getting a solid reaction here. Shows im getting over with the crowd in a heel fashion.

Hey Justin, hows it going?

Justin Roberts: Goin good Zigs. We gonna hit the club after? Cena said he knows a nice place to hang out.

Yeah sure. Just not like last time dude. I woke up the next morning and didn't know what hit me. I could have sworn something bad was in that drink.

Justin Roberts: You say that now, but once you see the girls you know you cant resit.

Well will see man, I'm tired.

Justin Roberts: And from San Diego, California. Weighing in at 185 pounds. He is current Intercontinental Champion. Rey Mysterio

The match begins with ref holding the belt as an introduction to the match. Ziggler and Mysterio begin to trade blows. Ziggler hits Mysterio with a European Uppercut. Ziggler then throws Mysterio into the ropes. He runs at Mysterio but Mysterio counters, sending Ziggler flying into the ropes. Ziggler bounces back wincing in pain. Mysterio curls up Ziggler's trunks and goes for a roll up.

Ziggler kicks out.

Ziggler gets up and is met with hard right and left kicks by Mysterio followed up by a hurricana. Mysterio goes with a tilt a world next and Ziggler gets thrown out of the ring. He walks back a step, and Mysterio leaps over the top rope. He takes out Ziggler. Both competitors are down and out outside the ring. The referee counts to 6 before Mysterio gets in the ring. Ziggler gets in the ring on a 9 count. Mysterio throws Ziggler into the ropes. Rey goes to hit Dolph, but Ziggler counters with a drop toe hold.

Ziggler goes to kick Mysterio, but Mysterio grabs his leg. Ziggler counters with an Enzuigiri. Ziggler then connects with a brainbuster. He hits Mysterio with a European Uppercut. Mysterio is down and out. Ziggler hits him with "Vintage" Ziggler with Multiple Elbow Drop's.

Ziggler goes for the Jumping Russian Legsweep but Mysterio is able to maneuver his body so Ziggler hits the mat. Ziggler gets up steaming mad, he runs towards Mysterio. Rey counters with a drop toe hold, sending Ziggler into the second and third ropes. The crowd goes buts. Mysterio runs and connects with the 619. He then hits the WEST COAST POP. He goes for the pin!


Justin Roberts: Here is your winner and STILL the Intercontinental Championship... Rey Mysterio.

Re: The Future Has Arrived - A Dolph Ziggler Diary -

Good stuff, man! I like how you're prtraying Ziggler as basically the nice guy who occasionally makes heelish remarks e.g: that MJ quip. Also like how you're portraying the inner workings of the business. Can't wait for your next post!

- Tuesday August 18th, 2009 -
- 1 PM -

Eve Torres: Hey Dolph, It's time to leave the pool. We need to go to the hotel and change and grab some lunch before we drive to Phoenix for the taping.

"Eve its only 1 PM. It will take 25 minutes to get to arena and a half and hour for lunch." "What's the rush? It's 85 degrees out? We never get time to relax."

Eve Torres: Well I'm leaving. I'll see you at the taping. And put some some screen on! Your gonna get burnt.

(Out comes Chris Jericho)

Chris Jericho:
Whats good Zig man?

"Not much man, just catching some sun." "You?"

Chris Jericho: Noting, just came to let you know I just got a call from Mike. He told me to let you know that you and Mysterio are tag team partners tonight. And your facing Hardy and Punk. Good luck kiddo. And you gotta get upstairs man, you need to be at the arena at 4.

"What?" "I thought it was 5?"

Chris Jericho: Nah bro. Hurry upstairs, We can travel together. Were all going back to the hotel later since they said we can leave our stuff in the rooms. Will grab some lunch and head over.

"Alright, I'll meet you in the lobby"

I head inside, go to my room and grab my bag. I meet Jericho in the lobby.

"Lets go!"

We get in the car and we begin driving to the arena.

Chris Jericho: Where do you want to grab a bite?

"I don't care man, its up to you."

Chris Jericho: Taco Bell? Its my favorite. I used to eat Taco Bell every time before going on stage with my band Folly.

"Sounds good"

We stop in taco bell grab a quick bite and its off to the arena when I get a phone call...

Stephanie McMahon: Hey Dolph, It's Stephanie. Just wanted to let you know plans have changed, your not winning the belt at Summerslam.

You have to be shitting me!! What did I do now? And I bought my dad a ticket to the show too. "Uhh Mrs. McMahon-Helmsey if you don't mind me asking why?" "Did I do something wrong?" "Does Vince think I don't have what it takes now?

Stephanie McMahon: (chuckling) Dolph relax. Plans change all the time. You didn't do anything wrong. Michael Hayes comes up with hundreds of ideas. He just thought of a better one.

"If you don't mind me asking, what is it?"

Stephanie McMahon: Your going to lose to Mysterio, that's all I can tell you for now.

"Ohh okay."

Stephanie McMahon: I'll see you at Summerslam we can talk then. Until then take care.

(End of call)

Chris Jericho: You seem pretty upset kid... What happened?

"Stephanie just told me I'm not winning the title now." "Vince told me in the meeting I have what it takes and they were putting the title on me." "I even bought my dad a ticket too." " I don't even know what I did wrong."

Chris Jericho: (Chuckling) Kid, plans change all the time. Creative comes up with hundreds of ideas a day. Did you know, Triple H was supposed to become the Undisputed Champion not me? But look what happened. I won that, not him. Owen Hart... Rest in peace my friend, was supposed to have Hunter's gimmick and that changed... My point is kid t happens all the time. Don't worry. You still have what it takes, that's why I'm taking you under my wing.


Chris Jericho: Besides, the title will be on you sooner or later. Mysterio is moving back up to the Main Event level. Hardy seems to be leaving, so Rey will be stepping it up. There isnt anyone eles. Morrison dosen't get good enough face reactions to face Punk... And who knows when Taker's coming back. So will see.

We reach the arena. I stop to sign autographs.

Fan: Hey Mr. Ziggler, can you sign this?

"Sure kid."

Fan: Thanks Mr. Ziggler, I'm your biggest fan!! I love your in ring skills. I love your entrance too.

"Thanks kid, I appriacte it. Cheer me on out their will ya?

Fan: Will do, good luck.

"Later kid"

What a nice kid. Usually all the kids are either really bratty or just obnoxious. They're are some peculiar wrestling fans out there... It's nice to see some nice ones.

I enter the arena and enter the agent's meeting.

Agent: Dolph you will be teaming with Rey Mysterio tonight to face Jeff Hardy and CM Punk, just 2 days before Summerslam. This will be a short match not to long. After the match your all going to be trading blows, with Hardy and Mysterio coming out on top. Dolph, your going to get hit with the Swanton Bomb, and Punk you'll get hit with a 619. We want to give the faces the momentum heading into Summerslam.

"Alright sounds good"

Agent: Oh and Dolph, you'll be doing most of the in ring work. Hardy and Punk are getting it light this match. They're pretty banged up from recent matches and we want to keep them fresh for Summerslam. It's going to be a brutal match guys.

CM Punk: Just the way I like it!

Jeff Hardy: Yeah its going to top the card. Were goin all out.

Rey Mysterio: Not if Zigs and I top you.

CM Punk: You could have the sickest match of all time but once Hardy comes out the crowd shits themselves, they'll forget all about your match.

Agent: Alright guys that's it, good luck and produce a good one tonight. Oh and Dolph, really focus on selling your injury from the Swanton after. Punk is going to slide in the ring, and get you. Mysterio hits the 619 and Punk will slide out of the ring. Then get back in and get you.

"Alright sounds good to me"

I head back to the locker room with the boys and await my turn to hit the tunnel. Its going to be a good one.


Tag Team Match
Main Event Match
Dolph Ziggler & (C) Rey Mysterio vs CM Punk & (C) Jeff Hardy

The match starts out with Punk and Hardy in the ring. Punk decides he dosen't want to face Hardy. He shakes his finger saying, no no no. He slaps Ziggler tagging him in. Ziggler and Hardy begin trading blows. Ziggler hits Hardy with a European Uppercut. He hits a suplex on Hardy. Vintage Ziggler with repeated elbow drops. Ziggler heads to the top rope. He leaps to hit Hardy with a drop kick.

(** Crowd Boo's **)

He leaps off the top rope but there's nobody home. Hardy picks up Ziggler and connects with the Twist of Fate. Hardy climbs to the top rope for the Swanton Bomb. Ziggler instinctively gets up and hits the rope sending Hardy crashing to the top turnbuckle. He winces in pain.

Ziggler throws Hardy into the turnbuckle. He runs at Hardy but Hardy counters with a hard elbow to the jaw. Hardy hits Ziggler with a Hard Irish Whip sending him hard to the bottom turnbuckle. He then hits his patented Hardyac Arrest aided by the top rope. Punk runs into the ring and close lines Hardy. Mysterio drop kicks Punk out of the ring. Ziggler then sends Mysterio over the top rope. Hardy then sends Ziggler over the top rope... He leaps over the top rope and connects sending Punk and Ziggler down. All competitors are down and out of the ring.

The Show Cuts To It's Final Commercial

The show cuts back to Ziggler having Hardy in a full-nelson. The crowd gets behind Hardy. Hardy who is still in bad pain from the recent attacks from Punk is able to hit Ziggler hard enough so Ziggler breaks the hold. Hardy then hits his face buster. He is able to make the tag to Mysterio. Mysterio close lines Ziggler and then hits him with numerous kicks. Ziggler throws Mysterio against the ropes, he slides under his legs. Ziggler picks up Mysterio and he counters with a bulldog. Mysterio goes for the pin.

Ziggler Kicks Out

Mysterio hits Ziggler with a drop kick which sends him in between the second and third ropes. You know what that means. The crowd cheers. Mysterio runs hits the ropes and is about to go run for the 619. But Punk kicks Mysterio. They have a stare down and Rey drop kicks Punk which results in the challenger for the Worlds Heavy Weight Champion hitting his head on the apron. Mysterio is about to turn but Ziggler cradles him up.

.... Mysterio kicks out.

Mysterio hits the 619. He goes for the West Coast Pop but Punk slides out of the ring. Ziggler goes to close line Mysterio, but Mysterio slides under and then connects with a running bull dog. He then hits a DDT. He finally realizes Ziggler is the legal man. He tags in Hardy. He signals for the Swanton Bomb as the crowd erupts. He leaps and CONNECTS. He tags in Mysterio who goes for the pin.


Winners: (C) Rey Mysterio & (C) Jeff Hardy

Aftermath: The show ends with Punk sliding in the ring and dragging the lifeless Ziggler out of the ring. Punk walks back with the dazed Ziggler to the back as Hardy music hits with himself and Mysterio standing on the top turnbuckles holding their belts. What will be in store for Ziggler vs Mysterio this Sunday?

Re: The Future Has Arrived - A Dolph Ziggler Diary -

Well this is the first time I've commented on this diary but I have been reading and I've been enjoying it. I like the out of character stuff, its pretty interesting. I noticed that you called Jericho's band "Folly" thought, while its "Fozzy". Also, you said a few times in this post that Dolph and Rey were tagging together against Punk and Hardy but then you also said a few times that Punk was tagging with Dolph against Rey and Hardy, so it was a little confusing. Anyways, keep up the good work and I'll be reading.
