WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler was recently inducted into Kent State’s “K” Hall of Fame for his accomplishments as an amateur wrestler while attending Kent State from 1999 to 2003.
Dolph Ziggler reminisced on his time as a member of Kent State’s amateur wrestling league, telling WWE.com, “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.”
Dolph’s accomplishments while wrestling for Kent State include graduating as the career leader in victories, being a three-time Mid-American Conference Champion and being one of three members in Kent State history 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.”
Dolph Ziggler took to Twitter to share this amazing moments with his family, friends and fans.
Congratulations to Dolph Ziggler on this incredible achievement!
