Dolph Ziggler recently sat down with the L.A. Times to promote Summerslam, which airs live this Sunday, August 19th, 2012. 

On cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase at Summerslam:

"SummerSlam is a grand stage, and I will find a way to steal the show that night one way or another, but I am still brainstorming on the perfect time to cash in. This is the biggest step thus far in my career, so it will be done right and be memorable!"

On comparisons to "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig:

"Any comparison to a WWE legend or someone I've looked up to is really cool, but make no mistake about it, my ego is too big to want to be a really good replica of someone else! It's unfortunate that if you're really good at your job, you are constantly compared to legends of the past. I am not trying to be the next ANYONE, I am going to be the FIRST Dolph Ziggler! Follow that!"

On his dream match at any Summerslam:

"Without a doubt myself vs. Shawn Michaels in his prime would be one of the greatest matches anyone in this era or any other era have ever seen! We would both try and outwork each other for the match and the pure emotion and reactions would be mind-blowing. Two of the best ever going head to head would simply be a masterpiece!"
