Dolph Ziggler’s career has had its ups and downs, and he recently noted that soon he would be making a big decision about his WWE future, and it looks like the decision has been made.
It was recently reported on The Locker Room podcast by Bin “The Hacker” Hamin that Dolph Ziggler had “two feet out the door” but he signed a new contract with WWE at the 11th hour. According to the report, the company made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
“Here’s the inside scoop that I’ve kinda been told. After Ziggler laid down the title and went away for 30 days, silently came back as #30 in the Rumble, and then tossed out kinda useless. He was already kinda two feet out the door, and it was at the 11th hour that they made him another offer he can’t refuse.”
“Big money, and the fact that, now that he’ll stay, he’s willing to put anybody over, do jobs – whatever, on TV, and he can leave after his matches, he doesn’t need to stick around the arena, and he can take outside projects as long as they don’t conflict with his schedule. Kinda the sweetheart deal, you know, I’m willing to stay a little bit longer because you met my price.”
If this report is accurate then it looks like Dolph Ziggler will be with WWE for another few years.
Dolph Ziggler openly expressed frustration with his position in WWE on Edge and Christian’s podcast a few months ago when he said he hated his role with the company.
Hopefully the next few years of his WWE run will go differently for him, but if the last few years are any indication, they probably won’t.
