That’s a long way off. We are coming up on the one year anniversary of AEW’s debut event, Double Or Nothing. The show, which took place on May 25, 2019, was an actual game changer as AEW was offering one of the biggest non-WWE events of all time. That is the kind of thing that can alter the course of the wrestling world and that is going to make people want to jump ship, which may be the case.

One of the biggest stories of 2019 was all of the WWE talent jumping over to, or trying to jump over to, AEW. It is likely going to be something that keeps happening over the coming months and years, which makes things all the more interesting. It’s hard to say who all will manage to get away from WWE, but one wrestler has actually given us a date when we can expect him there.

Dolph Ziggler took part in a Twitter Q&A this week, during which he was asked when we would be seeing him in AEW. Ziggler responded by saying “2025”, offering a possible look into his future. This comes after Ziggler reportedly signed a new contract late last year, which would likely be a five year deal. There is no way of knowing if Ziggler is being serious or not, but it is an indication that he may be considering a jump.

Ziggler has plenty of WWE moments. Check out some that you might have forgotten:

Opinion: I’m not sure I can imagine Ziggler jumping over to AEW but it is cool to imagine that being the case. Granted it might not mean as much as Ziggler will be forty four years old in 2025. That being said, he would still be a big coup for AEW, assuming both sides are still interested by that point. It’s something worth thinking about, even if it is still rather far away.
