Dolph Ziggler is currently headlining comedy clubs all over the country instead of wrestling in a WWE ring. He did an interview on the weekend of the Royal Rumble saying that he wasn’t going to be appearing at the Rumble event and he was only in town to do his comedy show. Ziggler lives in the area so everyone believed him.
Chris Van Vliet got a chance to ask Ziggler why he showed up at the Royal Rumble even after telling him a couple of days earlier that he wasn’t going to be working the show. It turns out that there is a funny story to that.
“Oh my God. That’s a great story. Can I tell this story? When I talked to you, I was not booked for the Royal Rumble and I have no reason to lie to anybody or be like ‘Hey listen, I don’t know what the deal is’. I was just on hiatus and I got a call to be there. And if I wasn’t in town for a booking for a comedy show that night I would not have even been in Phoenix. I got a call the night before saying ‘Hey, you gotta get here.’”
Dolph Ziggler is still under WWE contract, so don’t think that he will be signing with another company any time soon. WWE is doing him a lot of favors by being so lenient on his schedule and they don’t seem to mind his stand-up comedy career at all.
You still never know when The Show-Off will return because he’s done it before when we least expect him.
