The current Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler talked to CBS Cleveland this week, not only about his own future, but about the future of WWE and whether or not CM Punk will make a return.

New billing 

When asked about whether or not he would now be billed from Cleveland - as opposed to Hollywood now The Miz is billed from Hollywood and the two are both in fact from Cleveland - he explained. 

"That is in the works," Ziggler explained. "I don't know that it's going to happen but I have pushed for it before and now it kind of makes sense and there's a chance for it. As of now it's Hollywood, Florida so we'll see."

Part-time problem?

He also weighted in on the argument of part-time superstars and whether or not they are slowly destroying WWE.

"Eight years ago, it would have made me really mad with Rock coming back and guys who come back just for WrestleMania. It's a two part story. It makes me so mad that we can't do a show without those guys," he continued. 

"But here's the business side: we need those guys to get eyes on a show that normally wouldn't get them so you can see these up and coming guys so one day down the line in twenty years when I'm doing something else and they say "Hey we need you to get on this card so we can highlight these twenty other guys who are up and coming". It's a circle of life and a circle of business. If they weren't making money, they wouldn't keep doing it."

This opened up the question of Brock Lesnar and who he thought could defeat him after such a dominant display at SummerSlam.

"The way he beat up Cena is something I've never seen before in our business so it makes you want to see who the hell is going to beat this guy. Who can?"

What is CM Punk's future?

Shockingly, Dolph was also asked about the future of former WWE superstar CM Punk. Punk famously left after the Royal Rumble in January this year and so far he hasn't shown any interest in returning to the company that made him "the best in the world." But Dolph believes he could possibly still return to WWE. 

"I've always been told to never say never in this business or "this guy will never work here" but yet here they are," he added. "So you never know. So far of all the never's I've ever heard none of them have ever stuck but you never know."

Dolph defends his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz next Sunday at Night of Champions before, if rumors are to be believed, he is set to go up against Bray Wyatt in what could be an epic feud.
