WWE Superstar Zack Ryder, who is scheduled to face Dolph Ziggler for the US Championship Sunday at TLC, recently spoke to to promote the pay-per-view, his recent push, and his “Broski” character. Below are a few highlights:

Ryder on his recent WWE push: “Earlier this year, probably January or so, I looked myself in the mirror and said this career is not where I want it to be. I had nothing to lose; I was on a path to get released. What were they going to do? Fire me? Not put me on TV? I wasn’t on TV anyway. My life was going to change one way or the other. I knew I was either going to get fired or get noticed. I got noticed.”

Ryder on his US Title match Sunday: “If I won the United States Championship Sunday, it would be a perfect end to a storybook, roller coaster year. Starting from nothing and working my way up to being United States Champion, I don’t think it gets better than that.”

Ryder on his “Broski” character: “Ninety-nine percent of that character is me. It is me — I’m a big kid living the dream, listening to boy band music, fist pumpin’ in the club, spiking my hair.”
