Dolph Ziggler has been one of the most exciting in-ring performers in WWE for nearly 15 years. The Showoff has established himself as successful singles star and is looking to go strong for the next many years. Ziggler recently commented on his future in the world of professional wrestling.

Dolph Ziggler debuted in WWE in 2006 as a member of the Spirit Squad and was later repackaged as ‘The Showoff’ moving on to become a solo competitor. He has won multiple championships and accolades in his WWE career, and looks to have a lot left in the tank.

The 2-time World champion is also known to do one-man standup comedy shows, talk politics, and do various public appearances. Dolph Ziggler recently spoke about his in-ring future, comedic aspirations, and maintaining a balance for his two interests in the future during an interview with “The Archive of B-Sox” podcast.

“I love what I do, I feel great, and I’ve been very lucky injury-wise,” Ziggler, 42, said. “In 19 years, I think I’ve missed a couple of weeks of work.” Nowadays, the former Mr. Money in the Bank said he has an extra day off in his wrestling schedule that has allowed him to further explore a career in comedy — something he thinks may one day take up more of his time than wrestling. “It’s really fun for me to devote half of my week to [comedy].”


“You don’t get to wrestle forever. I’ve been very lucky so far and may be here for 10 non-stop years in a row … but I like being able to branch out — whether it’s to go talk politics somewhere, do an interview, do a one-man show, do an improv show, do an audition for something on Broadway.”

Ziggler also stated how his comedy career helps him in the ring and visualizes himself as a part-time WWE superstar in the next 15 years.

“Everything that gets you on stage helps you become smoother and comfortable” as a live performer. That helps you as a standup, but it also helps you in the ring … so, either way it’s a win-win. But I would love in 15 years from now I’m showing up in WWE four times a year to wrestle somebody in a big match and the rest of the year I’m bouncing around being Mick Foley or doing a comedy show.”

Dolph Ziggler recently made his return to WWE television programming a few weeks ago, launching an attack on WWE United States champion Austin Theory as a payback for an assault on Ziggler earlier. This could potentially lead to a program between the two superstars for the United States title.
