Ric Flair on Dolph Ziggler Possibly Leaving WWE, Ziggler Not Getting His Due, What’s Next?

Dolph Ziggler

Two time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair took to his podcast The Ric Flair Show to comment on the possibility of Dolph Ziggler leaving the WWE:

On him hearing that Ziggler is leaving post- No Mercy and could possibly be working in the office next:

“Well, I’ve heard that, but I hope it’s not true. He has too much left to offer to the business, and I think, I hope I’m not letting the cat out of the bag, I think they want him to work in the office. But he loves Phoenix [Arizona] and I don’t know that that will happen, but he [has] got, he can be with the company as long as he wants to be. He’s that good. He’s that a nice guy and he’s that highly thought of, so he’s in a good place.”

Flair continued, “I think he’s still very much part of the roster and I like seeing him on TV, so I hope he doesn’t walk away from it this early. But if he does, I’m sure he [has] done well with his money. He [has] made a lot of money, so he’ll be okay.”

On if he thinks Ziggler ever got his due in WWE:

“No. I think he’s really a lot more talented than he [has] had a chance to show. He has a chance to show it, but it doesn’t seem to be consistent. It’s one week on, one week off for Dolph. And that’s the way it [has] been for two or three years for him.”

Flair added, “I think Dolph has just, I think he has so much ability and he [has] been there a long time. People forget. He [has] had a great run and a great career, but he’s still young, he looks like a million bucks, and I hope he stays longer.”

On who else didn’t get their due in WWE:

“Well, my favorite of all time, the guy I bring up all the time that never got his due was Arn Anderson. And there’ve been other guys, I mean, Barry Windham. I’m trying to think in recent times. I haven’t followed as close. I’ve been watching every week with Charlotte being on, obviously, and watching Sasha [Banks] and all the guys, and Roman [Reigns].
