• RAW Star’s Exit From WWE Being Planned With Current Storyline?
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the current storyline between Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre could result in one of the following two things:
– Dolph Ziggler’s exit from WWE. Ziggler still hasn’t re-signed with WWE and his contract with WWE expires this Summer. If Ziggler doesn’t plan on re-signing with the company, then Drew McIntyre might be the one that writes him off WWE programming and then take credit for it.
– Drew McIntyre taking credit for resurrecting Ziggler’s career. If Ziggler doesn’t leave, then McIntyre will be credit as the man who resurrected the WWE career of the former World Heavyweight Champion.
