During an interview with Denise Salcedo, Former WWE star Nic Nemeth aka Dolph Ziggler talked about how he pitched leaving the company…

“It would be different if I was hobbling around or if I didn’t get reactions or wasn’t good at my job. I would be happy to take a backseat and help people out. But I’m sitting around six days a week, not working, basically in the prime of my career. So let’s get going. And so I said, ‘How about this? How about I leave for six months? How about I leave for a year?’ How about I get the hell out of here?’ But even a couple of years ago, when they said yes, the next Sunday, I’d get a phone call saying, ‘Hey, we need you.’ It’s great.”

“…Finally I wrote a really, really, really heartfelt, really long, mostly positive but some negative, six-page email to everybody in charge. Vince [McMahon] was the only one to write me back and he said, ‘Wow, I can’t believe this. Let’s talk.'” (quotes courtesy of
