WWE News: Update On Dolph Ziggler’s Status On WWE Raw Roster
WWE fans have not seen much of Dolph Ziggler on TV as of late. He is one of the trusted shoulders of the roster who shows up on work no matter what. But that man is out of the flagship programming for over the last couple of months. WWE has not spilled out any reason for the absence leading us wondering for the reason.
The last time we have seen Dolph Ziggler was during the 2019 men’s Royal Rumble match. He appeared to last for quite a long time before getting eliminated and jobbing to someone else. Even prior to this, he was in a rivalry against Drew McIntyre to end up in the losing side, as well.
Since then, WWE has not arranged any relevant storylines for him. So the former world champion had to stay away from the programming. Recent reports from Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio confirmed that Dolph Ziggler is on a hiatus. It is still not clear whether it’s requested time-off or just came about.
Further reports suggested that WWE wanted him to work as a backstage agent. But he was not willing to work in any sort of backstage role wiping out the chances of featuring in an official’s role. He is very much of an active competitor and has plenty of reasons to stay away from a duty that does not deal with active in-ring competition.
As of right now, it’s not clear whether Dolph Ziggler will be coming back to WWE in due course. It is Wrestlemania season where we get to see the biggest names of pro-wrestling featuring in mega matches. So this regular name of the Monday Night Raw roster might be off the creative radar. He can only make the comeback once the biggest event of the year passes by.
Meanwhile, the former two-time world champion is busy promoting his stand-up comedy tour. It is his backup profession apart from being a wrestler for the WWE. Rumors have suggested that he will focus more on this as his career is coming to an end in due course. But it’s yet to be confirmed.
His contract with WWE has always been a matter of discussion for the pro-wrestling fans. Some of the sources suggested that the deal is over whereas some hinted that both parties signed a new one. Meanwhile, there were also some rumors claiming that All Elite Wrestling could be his next destination. Overall, it’s quite a confusing situation which only the superstar himself can clarify.
