WWE Rumours: Dolph Ziggler hints at retirement


Dolph Ziggler tweeted something which hints a future away from the WWE following 'No Mercy'

Ziggler to hang his boots after ‘No Mercy’?

There have been multiple reports in the past few months about Dolph Ziggler not being happy about his role in the WWE. Rumours have been afloat about Dolph Ziggler leaving the WWE once his contract ends.

It all picked up steam when Ziggler put his career on the line for the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz in a Career vs Title match to be held at ‘No Mercy’ on 9th October 2016. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair suggested on his podcast that Dolph’s contract is up and the WWE officials are looking for a behind-the-scenes role for Ziggler.

The 4th October Smackdown Live episode was mentioned as Dolph’s ‘possibly last Smackdown appearance’ by the WWE during the broadcast. Now Ziggler himself has set the rumour mill afloat by tweeting the following

It has to be noted that Ziggler has been advertised for the October 11 Smackdown live episode as well as for the live events scheduled for 15th and 16th October. But interestingly, the ‘Showoff’ isn’t been advertised for the events following that and as of writing this article, there are no mentions of Dolph for the 18th October episode of Smackdown live.

Dolph has been very vocal about his interests in Stand-up comedy and it could very well be one of his potential careers in the future. Also, given his immense in-ring talent, he would have no trouble in finding promotions to wrestle for.

Although nothing could be said about his future with the WWE, there’s also a possibility that Dolph might just be trolling his fans with that tweet and will end up staying in the WWE. There has been a long history of Wrestlers using Twitter to continue their storylines and this might be a simple addition to the list.

Not reading much between the lines, it would be best to wait for ‘No Mercy’ on 9th October which just got a lot more interesting.
