WWE Superstar Natalya believes not only is Cesaro “the greatest professional wrestler in the world”, but Dolph Ziggler is “one of the greatest WWE Superstars there’s ever been”.
Certainly strong opinions by the ‘Queen of Hearts‘ on Cesaro and Ziggler. Natalya was speaking with Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda recently. During the interview she talks about Sting, Ronda Rousey and gives her predictions for the Royal Rumble matches – which includes tipping Dolph Ziggler or Cesaro to win the Men’s Rumble.
Speaking on Ziggler, Natalya couldn’t praise Dolph Ziggler any more, talking about his determination, his abilities and compares him to some of WWE’s greats such as Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.
I think Dolph Ziggler is one of the greatest WWE Superstars that’s ever been in our company. I watch every performance that he has, and Dolph is a friend of mine, but I’m speaking from my heart, when I watch Dolph perform, every single match he pours his heart into. He never phones it in, he goes out there and leaves it all in the ring.
He really is somebody that reminds me a lot of my favourites from the past, he has an element of Bret Hart to him, he has an element of Shawn Michaels, he has elements from old time wrestlers from our past – so many of those great qualities, but he’s also so modern. He’s really relatable, he’s hip and he’s awesome in the ring! He’s really really good.
Natalya goes on to explain her second tip for the Rumble win, Cesaro, quite direct in her reasoning that he is the greatest wrestler in the world.
Cesaro is the greatest professional wrestler in the world. There’s nobody that can touch him. There’s no superstar today that is Cesaro. I can’t wait to watch him shine, and hopefully get a chance to main event WrestleMania.
After the fall of the ‘Artist Collective’, Cesaro (real name Claudio Castagnoli) will go again on a singles competition run – something we haven’t seen much from him since his time besides Nakamura, Zayn and further back Sheamus making one half of The Bar for nearly 3 years.
Nicholas Theodore Nemeth, or as we know him Dolph Ziggler, is currently enjoying his time in an alliance with Robert Roode, but as we know with the Royal Rumble matches – it’s every man for himself!
The two just competed against one another in a singles match on WWE Smackdown in which the Swiss Cyborg took the win in a close fought bout – sealing the victory with a Neutraliser.
