Before we go into this, Ziggler has always enjoyed working the ‘smart fans’ (I hate that term, but I don’t know what else to call it. The name ‘Internet Wrestling Community’ seems a bit redundant when most people have the Internet now). So keep in mind, this could a work to enhance the storyline.
Ziggler will be putting his career on the line this Sunday at No Mercy against The Miz’s Intercontinental Championship – and he’s really going the extra zig-zag to convince us he’s no longer here to show the world.
He spoke very openly about his career on this week’s Talking Smack, and he’s been tweeting photos of him and backstage WWE staff as if he’s saying his farewells to the company since. He also posted that starting October 10th – the day after his No Mercy match – that all his bookings will go through Luber Roklin (an acting agency), hinting that he won’t be working for WWE past that date.
This comes alongside rumours and “backstage chatter” that Ziggler is going to lose to The Miz this Sunday, and that he wants to transition to a producer/agent type job to focus on his other interests like stand-up comedy.
Do you think Ziggler will retire at No Mercy? Let us know in the comments down below.
