The road to WrestleMania truly wouldn't be complete without a few new Dolph Ziggler rumors to throw into the fire.
Thankfully the yearly tradition of reports surfacing about whether Ziggler may or may not leave WWE is continuing. You may have noticed that Ziggler has yet to appear on an episode of Raw in 2019.
Maybe Ziggler is selling the injuries he suffered in his steel cage versus Drew McIntyre on New Year’s Eve or maybe there is something else going on behind the scenes. PWInsider has the latest on the future of Ziggler within WWE and even reports he was offered a role as a producer.
“As of today, sources claim he remains under a WWE deal (and some there have denied he is exiting at all) but others have been pointing to 1/31 as an exit date. Whether that turns out to be the case, we will see.”
If Ziggler’s contract really does run out on Jan. 31, it would still allow him to compete in the 2019 Royal Rumble on Sun., Jan 27.
On the social media front, Ziggler has been actively promoting a comedy tour that begins on Jan. 27 and has opened his own Pro Wrestling Tees storefront with Ryan Nemeth.

Others have also noted that on Twitter, Ziggler has changed his name from ‘Dolph Ziggler’ to his real name Nic Nemeth.
This is not a drill.
Are we perhaps closer than ever to seeing Ziggler test the free agent waters and leave WWE in 2019?
