A report attributed to PWInsider is making rounds across the Internet claiming that Dolph Ziggler has signed a new multi-year contract with WWE. I even noticed someone tagged the story on his personal Facebook page.
We’re unable at this time to confirm the deal but the timing is interesting. A couple of weeks ago we were told Ziggler was still frustrated and was considering life outside of WWE when his contract expired before the end of the year. In fact, we heard TNA Wrestling knew of his frustration and were prepared to aggressively court him.
Ziggler first alluded to a possible WWE departure during a worked shoot promo that he put on Twitter prior to the “Kiss Me Arse” match against Sheamus at Extreme Rules 2015.
Numerous close observers had indicated that now was not the time for Ziggler to leave WWE so it wouldn’t be surprising if he has re-signed but it would be surprising if the deal was signed in the last 3 weeks. We hope to have more later.
As for what Ziggler is doing tonight, you can see his standup comedy routine at Kowloon Restaurant in Saugus, MA. CLICK HERE for more.
