 Dolph Ziggler is a six-time Intercontinental Champion, two-time World Heavyweight and the United States Champion, and one-time Tag Team Champion. He is considered an underrated wrestler by the critics and the fans alike. The Showoff's WWE contract has been unclear so far. Some reports suggested that Ziggler signed a two-year deal this February which was clarified by him suggesting only the talks were on. The recent update suggests that Ziggler is yet to sign a contract with the WWE. The WWE Universe is wondering whether he will sign a new contract after losing his Intercontinental Championship to Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. Dolph Ziggler is an amazing athlete who has exceptional mic skills. He was involved in some interesting feuds with most of the big guys in the WWE over the past decade. His match with The Miz where Ziggler put his career on the line was unforgettable. However, his calibre was wasted last year when Ziggler started mocking the entrances of some current and past wrestlers like John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Randy Savage, etc. However, he began a feud with Bobby Roode putting an end to his weird entrance gimmick.

Dolph Ziggler along with Drew McIntyre, joined forces with Braun Strowman to decimate all three members of 'The Shield' last week on RAW. Ziggler and Drew McIntyre became a part of RAW during the recent Superstar Shakeup. It is refreshing to see Ziggler fighting with the top babyfaces in the WWE. His match with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam was a classic. According to this writer, the best time for Ziggler to sign a new contract with the WWE is now. Ziggler, McIntyre, and Strowman can form a new heel stable to counter The Shield. This feud has the ability to take RAW to a whole new level. It also gives Dolph Ziggler a chance to get the Intercontinental title from Seth Rollins in the near future. Ziggler could also get a chance to challenge Roman Reigns for his Universal Championship. Ziggler is becoming relevant in the WWE after a while. The Showoff has a great opportunity to climb to the top again, but this may be his final chance.

Dolph Ziggler's contract is rumored to expire at the end of this summer. The fact that Ziggler is part of a feud which has no sign of ending soon means he may sign a WWE contract soon. Ziggler deserves at least one final run at the Universal Championship. Even if he doesn't win the title, their battle would be epic. The only reason Ziggler may not sign with the WWE if he has made up his mind to concentrate on his career as a Stand-Up Comedian. We will have to wait and watch what transpire moving forward.

Do you think Ziggler should sign a contract with the WWE? Do you think he deserves to be a Universal Champion? Should he leave the WWE for some other promotion? Should he focus on his career as a Stand-up Comedian?
