This Sunday will see SmackDown LIVE host their second official Pay-Per-View following the brand split as No Mercy takes centre stage.

The blue brand's first PPV, WWE Backlash, went down very well with the WWE Universe, and they will be hoping to replicate that success this weekend.

One of the matches at Backlash was Dolph Ziggler vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship, and luckily for the fans, they will get to see that match one more time.

However, this time, it has a lot more meaning to it.

The Miz's IC Title will be on the line, but so will Dolph Ziggler's career.

Ziggler was desperate to get one more shot at the belt that on a recent episode of SmackDown LIVE, he issued a challenge to The Miz that saw him put his career on the line.

If he loses, Ziggler retires. He doesn't leave and come back, nor does he transfer to Monday Night Raw, he officially ends his WWE career.

With a lot of people now assuming that Ziggler must win, that might not be the case, as Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez believes Ziggler may in fact lose on Sunday.

It's being claimed that WWE may have The Miz retain his title, therefore ending Ziggler's career, so that The Showoff can take a backstage role with the company, similarly to what Jamie Noble did when he stopped wrestling.

It's believed officials with WWE see Ziggler as a useful asset to have backstage, and they could use him as a producer instead of an in-ring talent.

The 36-year-old also has his fingers in other pies, with comedy and politics slowly taking a more front seat role in his career, which could put an end to his wrestling days.

Should Dolph Ziggler retire from in-ring action? Have YOUR say in the comment section below!
