WWE Superstar hints at leaving the company soon

5-time Intercontinental champion, Dolph Ziggler has revealed that he could part ways with the WWE soon.

Ziggler was recently a guest on the Edge and Christian podcast, where he revealed his desire to leave the WWE soon, citing the repeated lack of chances at the top level and the recurring losses to NXT call-ups.

Ziggler stated that the last few months have been tough. The very less momentum he possessed perished after being put up as bait to the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode. He compared his position to a “gatekeeper” in the process.

He went on to say that wins and losses don’t matter in the business, but it begins to mean at the level when the person keeps on losing without a win to his name.

Ziggler added that if a wrestler is bound to lose week after week on live television, it is better off that the wrestler competes in the dark matches prior to the show.

Ziggler concluded by saying that he is reaching the threshold point of his career and there’s not much time left for him to make the ultimate decision. He mentioned that his exit from the company is around the corner and will most likely move on to other ventures or take up a backstage role with the WWE.  Here’s what Ziggler had to say on this matter:

“It’s a show business thing where I love it and in a very short time, I will have to decide if I need to go away and do my own thing or if I need to find a different role here.”

The former World Heavyweight Champion is slated to face Bobby Roode and Baron Corbin for the United States Championship. The match is scheduled to take place at the SmackDown exclusive pay-per-view, Clash Of Champions.

Author’s Take

It’s a shame that a wrestler with the calibre of such as Ziggler seeing out his career like this. It was expected that his career would be reborn after a stellar feud against The Miz last year. A failed heel turn meant that Ziggler was down in the bottom of the pecking order. It would be intriguing to see which path “The Showoff” chooses once his contract ends with the company. There is a possibility of him wrestling for NJPW and Ring Of Honor. If Ziggler chooses to opt out of wrestling altogether, he could continue with his stand up comedy venture.
