Dolph Ziggler: WWE star drops hint on retirement plans
Posted On August 11, 2022
Dolph Ziggler has revealed his plans for when he will retire from wrestling and WWE.
Ziggler began his eighteen-year stint in WWE as the caddie for Chavo Guerrero’s golf inspired character Kerwin White, before going on to be part of the Spirit Squad under the name Nicky in 2006.
In 2008 he re-debuted as Dolph Zigger and has gone on to be one of the top stars of the company, with two World Heavyweight Championship reigns and multiple championships across WWE – including his most recent triumph as the NXT Champion.
Speaking in an interview with Wills and Snyder the 42-year-old said that even though he’s one the elder WWE stars on the roster, he has no plans of hanging up his boots just yet.
“It really depends. The healthiest people in the world, sometimes it doesn’t work. Some people have re-occurring injuries. I’ve been very lucky. Going on 18 years, no major surgeries. Any kind of surgery I got, it was from wrestling in college. I’ve been lucky. I don’t ever want to stop. One day I’ll have to, but it sure as hell won’t be now.”
The Show-off has recently made a comeback to WWE TV following time away from the screen. He first appeared earlier this month in a segment where he seem to singling out Theory as someone of interest.
Reports suggest Ziggler could set to feud with the current Mr. Money in the Bank, as a gateway angle to get Theory ready for the next level in his development.
Dolph was also in action on this week’s Monday Night Raw, where he picked up a win against Chad Gable after a delivering a Super Kick to the Alpha Academy star.
