Former World Champion considering leaving WWE

Dolph Xiggler WWE

We have heard multiple times in the past that Dolph Ziggler is thinking about leaving WWE but it appears that this time the former World Champion is really considering to part ways with the company.

Ziggler recently appeared on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast where he discussed his status in WWE and expressed his displeasure with the way he has been booked in recent times.

Later in the podcast, the Showoff claimed that he has a very short amount of time left to figure out whether or not he wants to resign with the company:

“I have a very short amount of time left to figure out if I want to do that again or if there’s something to reach for. It’s a show business thing where I love it and in a very short time, I will have to decide if I need to go away and do my own thing or if I need to find a different role here.”

Continuing on the topic, Dolph talked about being the Gatekeeper for the guys coming from NXT and claimed that he is demanding the opportunity from the higher-ups of WWE every other day:

“Gatekeeper is a great spot for someone who hasn’t been world champion, who doesn’t excel at the seven out of the possible eight things you can do here as a sports entertainer and it’s really weird that I can’t get more, but trust me when I say I’m knocking on the door every other day and almost demanding it, so we will see what happens in a very short while, but I would love to keep doing this, just at a different level and I need to know that the company is on my side with taking it to another level, so I can give back and help at another level.”

    Lol Ziggler hasn’t been “fantastic” in a long time. He’s been outright awful this year doesn’t matter if he’s jobbing out. The days he was the hardest worker in the company are over.

    if you knew that you wouldn’t have made a dumb reply post like you did genius … noone can tell if you joking or serious

  • Rajah

    Nah, really! You don’t say!

    But thanks for feeling the need to point that out, I’m sure your brownie point collection has increased.

  • Brad Grillakis

    that’s b/c disques freezes at times which is why you see posts more than once. not bright there buddy.

  • Rajah

    A post so nice he posted it twice, twice.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Enjoy TNA or MMA like the rest of the has beens. Can’t say that we will miss him.

    Let me explain “NEW GUY” as you do not seem to understand how WWE works.
    When someone is “NEW” to the WWE main roster, they are a “NEW GUY”. That is how it works. These are the guys they want to “MAKE STARS” even if they are famous before. No matter how much they mention previous career (and when have you ever heard them mention anything Roode has done outside NXT?), they are still a “NEW GUY” in WWE and Ziggler has been fed to them to “GET THEM OVER”, cause you know, these guys need “GETTING OVER” in Vinces eyes.
    You are completely forgetting that to Vince, that if you have not wrestled in WWE before you are “NEW” and you need “GETTING OVER” in WWE.

    And where am I getting my statistics from? I am sorry, when did I give any statistics? You seem to be imagining things.
    Simple fact is, the first feuds for both Nakamura and Roode were with Ziggler, and he jobbed to both.
    As for Jobbing. Jobbing is losing a match. Whether you beat them down is neither here nor there, as what will go down in history is a win/loss record.
    And beating down Crewes and Kalisto, who are two guys lost in the WWE system (Crewes is a joke, and Kalisto has been relegated to 205 live) is not something someone like Ziggler is gonna wanna brag about as basically he lost to a jobber and cruiserweight.

    Roode debuted in 1998, SIX years before Ziggler. Again, not really a “new guy”.

  • MrDr3w

    Define “job out”. And while you’re at it, define “new guy”.

    In recent memory, he’s lost a handicap match to Apollo Crews and Kalisto, but beat the hell outta them afterwards. Hardly the work of a “jobber”. Then he won his match the next week. He’s pinned AJ Styles. Okay, he lost to Shinsuke Nakamura, but I wouldn’t consider him a “new guy”. Nakamura started wrestling in 2002, two years before Ziggler. He lost to Bobby Roode in their first match, but beat Roode down afterwards. Again, hardly jobber-like behavior. He then went on to win their rematch.

    So I don’t see where you’re getting your statistics from, or what show you’re watching. If Ziggler wants to whine and complain about not being given more opportunities to underperform and disappoint, then that’s fine. He can go tour gymnasiums for $500 and a free meal each night. I’m sure he local Indy promotions would love to have him on their card.

    dolphs problem is that hes very gifted inside the ring but hes not a superstar. Hes not that compelling on the mic and hes not really someone you get excited for when his music hits. I loved his matches he had with Del Rio though. Ultimately to me he lacked that one quality that held him back in my opinion and also lets face it WWE just sucks.

  • CC

    what a load of crap. WWE has given him nothing, yet his work has been fantastic.
    All they have done is job him out to every new guy that comes along.

  • MWDynomite

    Lol Ziggler hasn’t been good in years. His match against Miz last year was his only good match and it was because of Miz. WWE has actually given him a whole bunch of opportunities in the past year and a half and he’s the one wasting their time.

  • HBK

    Dolph another great talent being wasted by wwe…. I hope he leaves like cody rhodes. He’s better off somewhere else… these guys just care bout boreman reigns.
