There have been many reports about Dolph Ziggler's future in WWE as the superstar hasn't appeared in the WWE for a couple of weeks now.

The Showoff has been competing at WWE live events this year, but he is yet to make an appearance on Monday Night Raw in 2019.

Ziggler's last Raw appearance came on the last red brand show on 2018 when he wrestled against Drew McIntyre in a Steel Cage match, a clash which he lost.

Since then, much has been speculated about his future with the WWE, with many believing he might not sign a new deal with the company as his current one is near expiration.

To bring an end to the speculation, Ziggler himself spoke about his WWE future in a recent interview, as well as his status for the Royal Rumble tonight. 

He said in an interview with Chris Van Vliet, via NoDQ: “Technically I am still under contract, but I am not scheduled to be at the Royal Rumble tomorrow. I have a show after at Stand-Up Live.”

Ziggler explained further that his current WWE status is a gray area as he's allowed to do projects outside the company, meaning technically he's currently on hiatus. However, this doesn't mean he's left the WWE.

“It becomes a gray area because I have a weird life even for a wrestler so as of now there’s a couple different handshake agreements involved in some things sometimes it’s not written on paper, so I’ve been very able to do outside projects.

"Movies, shows, comedy, and a bunch of different things with my brother which is really fun. Because of never besmirching the WWE’s name and doing positive things they let me do more, and more, and more so I’ll be continuing to do some things like that.”

“I can’t really answer that and I don’t want to make some fake thing or some sly thing. For now, I am on a hiatus from WWE. It took me like ten years to get a weekend off and this is it. So we’ll see how it goes.

"Like I said it’s a handshake different thing than what’s on paper and I’ve given everything and we’ll see if there is more for me to give and I’d be happy to do it.”

So it looks like Ziggler isn't done with the WWE, but we might not see him in the ring as often as we used to either.
