Dolph Ziggler has responded to reports that John Morrison has signed with WWE and will be returning to the company soon.
In an interview with talkSPORT, Ziggler said:
“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.”
Ziggler continued, praising Morrison’s work ethic as he’s always looking for new projects to push himself with:
“He stays busy and he stays jacked, too.
“He’s another guy I gravitate to because he does outside projects to make himself better. Always looking to make a movie, always looking to do something bigger and better, goes to acting classes – how do you not gravitate towards people who want to be that extra piece of successful other than being good at your job?”
