During a recent interview with Savage Henry Magazine, former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler talked about his WWE status.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On the speculation that he’s leaving WWE and what he would do if he did leave WWE:
“In the last year I got an agent and a manager, just because I’m constantly asked to be a part of different outside projects. Even though I only get a few days off, I do not stop. Whether it’s getting some stage time at an open mic, or flying to L.A. to watch a ton of stand-up shows. I’m slowly moving into movies and tons of outside projects in the next few months.
I’m finally starting to book some stand-up dates too. At the end of the day, it’s just to be a better WWE superstar [and] also make myself a bigger asset, that is in demand. There’s a few months left on my current contract and I’m in the process of deciding. I love this business more than anything; hopefully it loves having me.”
On whether or not WWE has any issues with him doing stand-up comedy:
“WWE has no issues with my stand-up. I do not miss work for any reason and will continue to work around my schedule because I’m a professional and do not allow complacency or laziness.”
