A Twitter spat between Dolph Ziggler and a self-proclaimed veteran wrestler has caught the attention of the wrestling world. Ziggler, a WWE stalwart, hosted a Q&A on Twitter where he stated that he would like to be remembered as a “legit iron man” who never gets hurt or calls in sick. This statement was met with skepticism from a Twitter user named “Real Mean Marc Ash,” who claimed to be a veteran wrestler. Ziggler responded by asking for proof to back up Ash’s claims. AEW star Dax Harwood also got involved, defending Ziggler and calling Ash a “loser a*s wrestler” who treated younger wrestlers poorly.
Harwood and Ziggler previously worked together in WWE, and the AEW star recently took a dig at Vince McMahon and his leadership. Sources have confirmed that McMahon was planning to give Harwood and his tag team partner Cash Wheeler a new gimmick and name change before they left WWE. Harwood spoke about the state of WWE’s tag division ahead of WrestleMania 39, expressing his concerns that if McMahon lost interest in tag team wrestling, it would negatively impact the division.
Harwood and Wheeler are currently AEW’s tag team champions. They won the titles while there were still questions about their future with the company. The Twitter exchange between Ziggler and Ash may have been brief, but it has reignited discussions about the treatment of younger wrestlers in the industry and the importance of preserving wrestling legacies.
