WWE Superstars CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler have been hard at work on the media rounds leading up to Sunday’s SummerSlam, so it was inevitable that they would eventually be asked about the E!’s new hit show Total Divas.
Sport Illustrated spoke to the two men and asked both of them about the show and if they’d be interested in being featured on it.
Dolph’s response was full of praise, but he says he’d have to “think about” letting the cameras follow him around during his day to day life.
“Even knowing all those people, I think it’s a very intriguing show. When I first watched it, I was like ‘Wow, I can get into this show.’ I would think about doing a reality show. However, as much as I want to be in TV, movies and crossover, I saw those cameras around for a couple of months and it’s huge invasion of your privacy. I’d have to think about it. I wouldn’t mind being a guest star or a bit player, but I’d need 24 hours at home in silence sometimes.”
Punk, however, was not so keen on the idea:
“Reality show? What the hell is reality TV any way? It’s as scripted as anything. I wouldn’t want my life acted out on television in some weird drama. If somebody wants to follow me around with a camera, I do think my life is pretty entertaining on its own without trying to spice it up. But it doesn’t sound like anything I’d sign up for. I do like the small sliver of privacy I’m afforded.”
We can’t say we’re surprised at Punk’s response. Dolph’s, however, is great to hear. It shows that Total Divas has appeal beyond the typical reality show audience.
