Following his recent absence from WWE television, Dolph Ziggler's return to programming was more than welcomed by the WWE Universe.

Ziggler was said to be out of action due to a throat injury sustained by Rusev after being attacked by the Bulgarian Brute's crutch, when really he was away filming a movie.

Nonetheless, his impressive form of late, as well as his ongoing feud alongside Lana with Rusev and Summer Rae, have meant Ziggler has been continually exciting to watch.

During this week's SummerSlam pay-per-view event which aired live from Brooklyn on Sunday night, the 35-year-old put on an impressive display against Rusev.

The match however, like many others on the night, resulted in a questionable finish, with both men being counted out.

Though frustrating, this result is an easy option for WWE in terms of being able to continue the feud between the pair, as well as potentially setting up a mixed tag team match between Ziggler and Lana and Rusev and Summer Rae.

Contract renewal

Some months ago however, things were not as positive regarding Ziggler and WWE as many reports circulated involving a possible departure by Ziggler from the company.

A well known-comedian, The Show-off is also pursuing an acting career, which explains why renewing his WWE contract might not have been his first choice in his decision-making. 

Speaking with E Wrestling News, Ziggler opened up about the tough decision he faced when his WWE contract was coming to an end:

"My contract was coming up, and I was weighing a bunch of different options...I had a lot of outside offers to do some other things. Instead I decided to settle on doing the thing I love the most and working for WWE."

Popular superstar 

Having been signed to WWE for 11 years now, it is easy to understand that Ziggler has become comfortable with his current situation, not least because he is one of the best in-ring performers currently on the company's roster. 

He continued:

"WWE has given me an out where any days off that I have they allow me to work on outside projects. So it’s a win-win for everybody. I don’t miss any work. I get to keep doing what I love."

Despite being one of the most experienced wrestlers at WWE, we are sure to see yet more to come from Dolph Ziggler for many years.

As his current working schedule is suitable for both him, the company and most certainly pleasing for the WWE Universe, we can only hope his most recent contract signing is the first of even more.
