Dolph Ziggler has always been pretty open when it comes to talking about his career, and he recently said on Edge and Christian’s podcast that he would be making a big decision about his future soon.
It seems that WWE creative decided to use the uncertainty regarding Dolph’s future to their advantage by turning it into a storyline, and the storyline definitely has people talking.
After winning the United States Championship at Clash of Champions, Dolph Ziggler celebrated his big win on SmackDown Live, but then he left the title in the ring and walked away.
SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan later announced that Dolph relinquished the title, and a tournament is currently underway to crown a new champion.
For the time being, everyone is focused on the US Title tournament, but we still don’t have answers regarding what the future holds for Dolph Ziggler.
One idea that’s rumored to be on the table is the possibility of recreating a storyline that culminated at WrestleMania X by having Dolph return as the “rightful” US Champion with two champions fighting in a ladder match with dual belts on the line.
WrestleVotes, who broke the story about Neville walking out a few months ago, recently noted that the idea is rumored to be something that’s being considered.
Not exactly sure where this Dolph Ziggler US Title angle is going but one idea I’ve heard is to mirror the WrestleMania X ladder match dual belt storyline. A new US champ is crowned, Ziggler returns as “rightful” champ and both belts hang during ladder match. We shall see…

If this match does take place, then it could potentially be a big deal for Dolph Ziggler, as he’s been with WWE for many years, but still has yet to wrestle a singles match at WrestleMania.
Where do you think this Dolph Ziggler storyline is going? Sound off in the comments below.
So, kind of a take off of the Cena/Punk angle.
The “rumor” WrestleVotes tweeted is almost word for word what I wrote about two days before their tweet http://popculture.com/wwe/2017/12/27/daniel-bryan-us-title-tournament/
