Dolph Ziggler signs new 2-year WWE deal

Former World Heavyweight champion Dolph Ziggler has signed a new two-year deal with WWE.

There were rumors going around over the past several months that Ziggler was looking to leave the company and the job that he had for the past 14 years. However, the 37-year-old has opted to extend his WWE stay and is reportedly making $1.5 million per year according to Sports Illustrated.

Ziggler’s new deal will allow him to do work outside the company and continue his stand-up comedy career.

He returned on WWE television at the Royal Rumble after two months away from the ring and will now be part of the Fastlane fatal 5-way main event next month.
