Dolph Ziggler has reportedly rejected a new WWE deal and may leave next month

If there's been consistent within WWE over the past 10 years, it's Dolph Ziggler's ability to steal the show on a weekly basis.

He's admittedly had his dry runs where things haven't clicked, but you only have to cast your mind back to the night after WrestleMania 29 where he cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase on Alberto Del Rio to win the World Heavyweight Championship and the reaction he got for that.

In recent years big matches at WrestleMania have evaded him, and whilst having a few spells as Intercontinental Champion, he's never really been given the push into the main event for another world title run.

His latest stint being paired with Drew McIntyre thought seemed to revitalise him, and he was part of a big summer storyline involving The Shield and Braun Strowman, before that ended and the Scottish Psychopath turned on the Show-Off.

We last saw Ziggler being destroyed following his New Years Eve match with McIntyre on Raw inside of a steel cage, and in the weeks gone he's been absent.

There may be a reason for his disappearance though, as Mike Johnson of PW Insider has reported.

According to Johnson, Ziggler remains under a WWE deal but the fact he has removed his stage name from his Twitter account and is going on a comedy tour soon is an ominous sign.

Dolph Ziggler has reportedly turned down a non-wrestling deal with WWE and could leave next month.

Johnson stated January 31 being a date that could be when Ziggler's deal expires, and he also noted that the he turned down a 'producer' contract that would have seen him work behind the scenes to create matches for shows and pay-per-views.

You can understand why he's turned it down if this is the case, considering he could probably get a great contract elsewhere to wrestle - maybe All Elite Wrestling or New Japan Pro Wrestling.

But when you think about it, in the ring he's probably run his course when it comes to storylines, and if he does want to leave, can you blame him for wanting a fresh challenge?
