Dolph Ziggler inducted into Kent State University's Varsity "K" Hall of Fame
Dolph Ziggler was inducted into Kent State University's Varsity "K" Hall of Fame for his impressive amateur wrestling accomplishments while attending from 1999 through 2003.
"I had a very fun career there," Ziggler told WWE.com. "We did a lot of cool things, we won a conference championship, [and] a lot of special bonds [were] made with friends who I still talk to to this day."
Ziggler acquired many impressive distinctions while wrestling for the Golden Flashes, including graduating as the university's career leader in victories, as well as being a three-time Mid-American Conference champion. He is also only the third wrestler in the history of the program to be a four-time NCAA qualifier.

"I started wrestling when I was five," Ziggler said. " I lost my first match and cried in front of my dad, and I never wanted to do that again. I grew from that day on, and when I get up there I will have a couple of people to thank."
WWE congratulates Ziggler on this distinct honor.
