Wrestling can be a little unfair? Despite being someone who does not perform full time anymore, Dolph Ziggler is one of the most discussed wrestlers in WWE today. Some fans love him and others can’t stand him, but whenever he is around, he is likely to be involved in a bi story, whether he wins or loses. That was the case at Summerslam, but the fallout might not have gone as expected.
According to Bodyslam.net, Ziggler was supposed to finish up with WWE this past Monday after losing to Goldberg at Summerslam the night before. Vince McMahon had promised to let Ziggler out of his deal, allowing him to move on to his other projects. However, McMahon backed out of his agreement, saying that he would rather just pay Ziggler to stay at home. There is no word on how long the contract is for or if there is any AEW interest.
It’s been a rough week for Ziggler. Check out his Summerslam destruction:
Opinion: While this sounds great on paper, it doesn’t offer him the best protection. McMahon backed out of his agreement once. What is going to stop him from calling Ziggler back to work a few more shows, even if Ziggler has something planned? I’m sure Ziggler won’t be complaining about the checks and free time, but that doesn’t mean this is what he wants.
Will Ziggler be back in WWE? Is McMahon doing the smart thing? Let us know in the comments below.
