Dolph Ziggler is very busy with his stand-up comedy career. DZ and Friends has tour dates all over the country and they are looking to tour abroad as well. However, The Show Off is still a WWE Superstar.
While speaking to 98.5’s Wrestling Inside the Ropes, Dolph Ziggler explained how “it’s weird” because he’s been working on a handshake agreement with Vince McMahon for two years. This has afforded him to do a lot of things, but apparently, nothing is 100% on paper from the sounds of it.
“It’s weird because for the last two years I’ve had somewhat of a handshake agreement, kind of behind closed doors deal with WWE. I’ve been able to do a lot of things, on my own, not at WWE, just because of the relationship we’ve had for the last 14 years. I have a bit of a handshake agreement right now, but we’ll know some more details in the coming months.”
Ziggler returned to the Royal Rumble for a few minutes in the men’s over the top rope match where he had a good showing. This was days after he confirmed a “WWE hiatus.”
He can still perform at a high level because he keeps in shape and is a natural in the ring as well. However, he is also very gifted on the microphone and is very much enjoying the freedom to pursue his comedy passions away from WWE.
It wouldn’t be a big surprise to see him make an appearance at WrestleMania though because if anything, Ziggler could always be an addition to the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal match.
