“Queen Diva,” perhaps, but even royalty has a line of succession. Dolph & AJ follow in the long and notorious tradition of couples like Triple H & Stephanie McMahon, Eddie Guerrero & Chyna and Edge & Lita. 

“Look, if you want to compare winners from 10 years ago or 20 years ago or 100 years ago, it’s just a waste of time because everything we do is different than anyone that ever came before us,” Ziggler argued.

“Edge and Lita did seize the spotlight once,” the outspoken Superstar continued. “And so did 20,000 other people. It’s like anytime somebody is in a tag team, somebody says, ‘Oh, these guys are the ‘new Hart Foundation.’ No! We’re not ‘the new’ anything. We are innovative, original and are putting butts in the seats because of it.”

“I think if you try to recreate something,” AJ added as she cuddled up to The Showoff, “you are going to fail. To me, [Edge & Lita] are both Legends and I wouldn’t want to try to be them. I think we are kind of amazing in our own right, and we’re not the next anybody. We are the first ‘us.’ ”

“Everybody wants to do it better than others,” Ziggler added. “We happen to do it great. But I don’t want to be a knock-off of someone else. I want to be the best Dolph Ziggler anybody’s ever seen and be the first Dolph Ziggler.”
