WWE Hall of Famer says a surprising superstar has the greatest potential of anyone in the WWE

Pat Patterson is, without a doubt, one of the most respected men in the entire wrestling business.

At 75-years-old, the Canadian grappler has seen it all and has been behind some of the greatest innovations the business has ever seen.

The first-ever Intercontinental champion stopped by The Rack on Wildtalk radio this week to discuss a multitude of things with his book 'Accepted: How the First Gay Superstar Changed WWE' coming out on August 9.

One topic he touched on was the superstar on today's roster that has the most potential. He didn't suggest it to be any former member of the Shield, nor did he give any newcomer from NXT his legendary seal of approval.

In fact, it is a 10-year veteran that he sees the most potential in: Dolph Ziggler.

“Dolph Ziggler. Without a doubt. I see it big time. He has come a long way this kid. My point of view is if you got guys like Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and all of these characters that are bigger than life, but those little guys, people love them. They are talented. That what makes feel that these can do nice things too.”

With Ziggler recently earning a WWE World Heavyweight championship title shot at Summerslam, one has to speculate that Patterson has been campaigning for Ziggler to get a main event shot again for a while.

The Showoff will meet current champion Dean Ambrose on August 21 with the biggest prize in the industry on the line. Many fans feel that Ziggler has been a phenomenal worker for several years now and hasn't quite got the credit he deserves.

A solid world title run would surely placate that section of the fanbase, but whether Vince McMahon is ready to dethrone Ambrose or not, only time will tell.
