In a matter of months Dolph Ziggler could potentially be the hottest free agent on the marker as his WWE contract is set to expire.
It was revealed last week that Dolph Ziggler had given the WWE a certain amount of time to give him a decent push otherwise he would be leaving the company and it comes as no surprise that other wrestling promotions are swooping in like vultures to secure the signing of the show off.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that Dolph Ziggler is drawing interest from a number of promotions and the way things are playing out on WWE television, it doesn’t look like he’ll be getting a top push for a championship as he’s currently feuding with Rusev who isn’t even cleared to compete in the ring.

They’ve also reported that people close to Dolph Ziggler have claimed that he is actually considering what decision he should make regarding his future which doesn’t include signing a new deal with the WWE.
As we said last week, Lucha Underground is a possible destination for Dolph Ziggler and he would be a huge star with his style and look and his good friend Johnny Mundo also competed on the promotion.

LUCHA UNDERGROUND OR NJPW?
They also possess other big-name talent, most notable Alberto El Patron as well as Prince Puma. As entertaining as Lucha Underground is, I do think it would be a risk for Dolph Ziggler to sign with them considering they don’t have a secure future as of yet so if he is interested, perhaps he should wait a little longer to see what the El Rey network has planned for the show.
New Japan Pro Wrestling is another promotion interested in signing Dolph Ziggler, and based on wrestling as a whole this would probably be the most attractive option for Dolph Ziggler. He’s already a huge name in the wrestling industry and the matches he would put on with some of the talent in NJPW would definitely be worth tuning in to.
The third, and most surprisingly is TNA. Again, their future isn’t really secure but Dolph Ziggler would be a huge coup regardless of what the future has in store for them and he would definitely be catapulted right to the top.
He does have plenty of options. Signing with another company would be the likely option whilst signing a new deal with the WWE is also a possibility.
Retirement is also not out of the question as he could focus on a career in stand-up which he does in his spare time. Fans will be surprised to hear that there hasn’t been much interest from Ring of Honor.
If Rung of Honor were able to sign him then it would be even bigger for the promotion considering they have recently been picked up by Destination America. Dolph Ziggler doesn’t need to make a decision right away but this story will definitely get more interesting in the coming weeks.
