Despite the Boston Herald claiming otherwise, Dolph Ziggler says he hasn’t yet re-signed with WWE. Ziggler had been quoted in an article by the Herald in which he had said “I should end my career in the WWE,” and the same article said he had re-upped with the company. However, Ziggler denied such on the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show and said that he’s currently still in talks. We’ve been reporting for several weeks now that Ziggler’s WWE contract is expiring in a few months and he’s been exploring his options outside of WWE. He seems to confirm that with his latest comments.
“I’m thinking about it right now,” Ziggler said. “I had a request for an upcoming contract that would end a few months from now, maybe two or three months from now, and they requested back what they would like, I countered another offer and we’re waiting to finalize some things.”
He continued, “I love WWE and I can’t picture myself wrestling somewhere else but it’s also becoming now where that Wednesday and Thursday, I can’t just do that and get some outside live events for comedy and different movie and television options, which would only be to promote myself as a WWE superstar, to make myself a bigger star so I can advance more in WWE. So if I can’t find that happy medium, I might have to go away for a little bit. What I wanna do is make myself a bigger asset to WWE. If it involves leaving, that would crush me but it might.”
So, the ongoing saga continues ….. stay tuned!
