Former World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler is reportedly set to make his return on tonight’s WWE Raw in Minneapolis to set up his SummerSlam match with Teh bulgarian Brute, Rusev. Ziggler vs. Rusev or a mixed tag match with Summer Rae and Lana is rumored.
Ziggler was wrote off TV to film WWE Studios’ “6:32” thriller.
Another former World heavyweight Champion would rather be off screen than on as The Big Show was recently interviewed by Digital Spy in the UK to promote Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event. He revealed that he doesn’t want to be on the road five-days a week any more and would like to remain with WWE on a limited appearance deal.
“I think so – I think the uniqueness and the special things that I bring to WWE is sometimes a little bit downplayed because you see me every week. I think that’s one of the things that will happen to me eventually. I’m going to start not being on our programming as much, not being on TV every week. Hopefully when I do get a chance to come back, I’ll be able to have a little bit more impact and a little bit more fun. That’s part of what I should have been doing my whole career anyway. I think quite frankly I have been on TV too much, but part of it is necessity and part of it’s ability. I’m able to work, I am able to get other talent over. I am able to carry storylines. When you’re good at what you do you’re going to work. That’s a good thing. But from the standpoint of being an attraction, sometimes too much isn’t good. So it’s a difficult fine line. I’ve had a great career with it and been very happy, I’m not complaining, but I think as I’m getting older – I’m 43 now – I don’t wanna be on the road five days a week anymore. I really don’t. It’s one of those kind of things. I have time left on my contract here and I’ll work that out, and when that contract ends I’ll always be a part of WWE as long as they want me, but I think I’ll go into more of a limited role. Who knows? Maybe even go into commentating or something like that. Maybe I could do pay-per-view commentating or something – special event commentating. I’ve only got three moves! I’ve only had three moves for 20 years so I don’t think I can do much more.”
