News surfaced online this week that Dolph Ziggler re-signed with the WWE for $1.5 million a year.
The Dirty Sheets have been at the forefront of the Dolph Ziggler situation, correctly reporting when his contract would expire several months ago, in addition to exclusively reporting on his short-term extension.

Despite being incorrect about EVERYTHING relating to Dolph Ziggler for several months, the likes of Dave Meltzer, Mike Johnson and Justin Barrasso are all claiming to have the scoop on Ziggler’s new deal, with Barrasso, a source who has NEVER correctly broken a relevant story in his career, reporting that Ziggler has re-signed for $1.5 million a year. This is absolute nonsense!
To put this into prospective, this would mean that Ziggler has re-signed for $500,000 more than The Miz, who recently signed a new 4 year deal for $1 million a year.
This figure would also mean that Ziggler’s downside guarantee exceeds, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Charlotte Flair, Finn Balor, AJ Styles, Nakamura and others, and puts Ziggler on the same salary as Randy Orton. This would also mean Ziggler is only receiving $1.5m less than Brock Lesnar and marginally less than John Cena and Ronda Rousey.
It probably goes without saying, but our sources have confirmed that the story about Ziggler’s contract and salary is complete and utter nonsense.
