Former Spirit Squad Member Mike Mondo spoke with Newsday.com about Dolph Ziggler’s success following their Spirit Squad days.
“The fact that he’s had a lot of success with the Intercontinental title, and winning the world title and the Money in the Bank, that’s really cool,” Mondo said. “So if was not going to be me, I’m glad the next guy in line was Dolph.”
Mondo also discussed working WrestleMania with Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels.
“I remember just looking around at the Squad members and thinking, ‘We made it to the dance. We made it to WrestleMania,'” said Mondo, who got further encouragement from Michaels once inside the ring. “He said to us while we were down there, ‘Welcome to WrestleMania boys.'”
