The latter was said to have signed a deal with WWE back in September, a report he has since shot down. But tongues were set wagging again after Ziggler posted a photo of the two standing side by side in costumes on Twitter.
Speaking to talkSPORT's Alex McCarthy, Ziggler claimed to not know anything about Morrison's future, stating that they're just friends who shot a movie together and the photo means nothing.
“I keep hearing that too! What the hell? He’s a friend of mine. We hang out and do things together," he remarked.
"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 favor. 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 long time, 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 rein to tear it down and have a blast. Hopefully, he’s back soon, I don’t know.”
The image above hardly spells confirmation but who can blame wrestling fans for being optimistic when they see something like that.
It would be cool to see Morrison return, though, and maybe he will. But we'll just have to wait on another report of a contract signing (and then wait for him not to refute it).
