It’s become common knowledge over the past few weeks that Dolph Ziggler‘s WWE contract expires ahead of WrestleMania and it appears that the former World Champion has no desire to extend his stay with the company once more.
Ziggler was last seen on WWE TV when he was defeated in a steel cage match by Drew McIntyre a few weeks ago on Raw, before his former friend then returned to attack him with a steel chair and write him off WWE TV.
Interestingly, Ziggler did the same thing not so long ago when he vacated the United States Championship and seemingly walked away from the company, before he was a shock addition to the Royal Rumble match.
While there is a lot of talk about his future in the company right now, Joe Peisich of Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast recently confirmed that Ziggler had turned down the opportunity to extend his stay with the company and could be opting to walk away in the coming months.
“Dolph Ziggler’s contract is up before WrestleMania. He has turned down offers by WWE. Dolph Ziggler doesn’t look like he’s going to sign up,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Ziggler has been part of WWE now for more than 13 years and has always had a budding comedy career on the outside. This means that Ziggler has a lot of options for himself if he does decide to walk away.
With All Elite Wrestling on the horizon, he could be tempted to test his mettle with The Elite in future as well, but as for right now, Ziggler’s WWE future remains up in the air, since he could easily be added to the Royal Rumble match once again this Sunday night.
