Nic Nemeth, formerly known as Dolph Ziggler in WWE, was let go from the company late last year. Nemeth has been with the company since 2004 and has enjoyed a successful run with plenty of on-screen appearances. Since he became available, he’s made appearances in both NJPW and TNA. Now, he is set to appear in the independent scene.
Nemeth was seen speaking with Sam Leterna on TNA’s Instagram page, where he shared where he’ll be appearing next. He said that fans will see him engage in competitions in the Indies. He added that he’ll be bouncing around quite a bit since there are many opponents that he wants to take on.
Nic also said that when it was announced that he’ll be getting released from WWE, he received many offers. Nemeth also said that he is fortunate now to do the things that he couldn’t do in the last 20 years due to his obligations to WWE.
“Of course, yeah. I’m gonna bounce around. I said I was very fortunate when I announced that I was, actually I didn’t announce it. WWE announced it. The outpouring, it wasn’t just congrats. It was, ‘Can we get you here?’ I’m very fortunate, and I was in a little bubble because I always just did with this one company. I never got to see it for myself or go with another company, or just fly myself to Japan. I’m doing all these things, and it’s really exciting because I didn’t really have a chance in the last 20 years. I was focused on some other things. I go, this is so exciting for me that I want to bounce around.”
“You’re gonna see me on the independents. You’re gonna see me showing up. I’m hitting Puerto Rico this weekend and bouncing around. I hope I can make that work to where it’s like, I show up somewhere, everybody’s better because I was there, and now you want to come back next time because you know I’m coming back again. I want to do that in as many places as I can, and there’s a million people out there that I want to get in the ring with, and it’s gonna be a special year or two before we even start it over again. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Nemeth’s brother, Ryan Nemeth had previously tried to get him to leave WWE almost decade ago. Now, Nic is scheduled to take on Matt Cardona (formerly Zack Ryder of WWE) at GCW The Coldest Winter 2 on February 3. The match will take place at the Ukrainian Cultural Center, Los Angeles on Saturday.
