Dolph Ziggler recently did an interview with Alex McCarthy of TalkSport where he spoke about a wide range of topics.
In the interview, he talked about rumors that former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Morrison had agreed to a deal to return to WWE back in September. It should be noted that neither side has confirmed these rumors and he hasn’t appeared on WWE programming.
Morrison, who worked for the company between 2002 and 2011, has been staying busy outside of the company by competing for various promotions including Lucha Underground, AAA and Impact Wrestling over the last eight years.
According to Ziggler, he hasn’t heard anything about whether Morrison had actually signed with the company but because of their friendship, he hopes the rumors are true.
“I keep hearing that too! What the hell? He’s a friend of mine. We hang out and do things together. I just did a little cameo in a short movie he did a couple of weeks ago and then he posted these pictures of the two of us, and then I posted them like ‘this is cool’. Then everyone is like ‘Confirmed! These guys are a tag team, they’re dressing like double dragon, they’re back!’ And I’m like ‘guys’ [laughs].
He’s a friend of mine and I was doing him a favour. He keeps it under his coat about what he’s doing but for three years he’s been telling me he’s coming back! So, I don’t know if he’s messing with me or what so I stopped asking him. I hope he comes back. It’s been a really longtime, it’ll be so refreshing to see him. He and I 10 years ago on these overseas tours, we’d either start the show or wrestle before the intermission, first-half main event, where we were given free reign to tear it down and have a blast. Hopefully he’s back soon, I don’t know.”
