WWE SmackDown Live Superstar Dolph Ziggler recently spoke to FOX Sports.
Recent reports of him signing a new WWE contract:
“I would love to get into that more but based on the internet, they told you I’d re-signed and I have not.”
On when negotiations will be done:
“Very shortly. We’re working on it now. There’s a deadline that’s approaching so very shortly. I have some options on the table to do some other things. I don’t take time off, I don’t like missing work and when I’m not there, I’m doing other things whether it’s FOX News, FOX Business, stand up comedy, improv, writing a book and a movie with my brother. I have a bunch of things going on and I don’t like taking days off and I don’t want to leave WWE but it’s great to have some options. I’ve asked before to go away for a little while just so everyone can forget I lose 99 times out of 100 and it’s never really come through, so I might have to do it on my own and see what happens.”
His win/loss record in WWE:
“When I come to the ring I have people in their late 20s saying ‘here comes Dolph, we know he’s going to lose’ and then an eight year old kid going ‘Dolph always loses, it doesn’t matter’, now I’m not helping the company by being a great foil for the guy you’re rooting for. I’ve made a career out of losing 99 times out of 100 and still giving everyone that hope and I love it and live for it. There’s no one else in the business when can do that.”
