Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Nic Nemeth, known by his ring name Dolph Ziggler, is set to make his highly-anticipated debut in TNA Wrestling. After his release from WWE last year, Nemeth has been actively booking himself in various wrestling events following the conclusion of his non-compete clause.
Nemeth's journey post-WWE began with a bang as he made a surprise appearance at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 18, confronting IWGP Global Heavyweight Champion David Finlay. This confrontation led to a showdown between the two at the New Beginning event, marking an exciting start to Nemeth's post-WWE career.
Most recently, Nic Nemeth made an impactful appearance at TNA's Hard to Kill pay-per-view. During the event, he engaged in a brief physical altercation with the newly crowned TNA World Champion, Moose. This unexpected encounter set the stage for Nemeth's upcoming match against Zachary Wentz of The Rascalz.
Nemeth's TNA Debut
The match took place during the TNA Snake Eyes event, which was recorded at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas on January 14. Fans eagerly await this matchup, as it not only marks Nemeth's first bout in TNA but also his first in-ring appearance since parting ways with WWE.
In addition to Nemeth's debut, former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada also graced the TNA Wrestling Snake Eyes tapings. He teamed up with the Motor City Machine Guns, consisting of Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, for a thrilling multi-man match.
Their team triumphed over Moose and his new partners from The System, Brian Myers, and Eddie Edwards. After the contest, Okada expressed his gratitude to TNA and its fans, dispelling any notions of animosity, stating, "Thank you.
Many people ask me, 'Why [do] you hate TNA?' But I don't hate TNA. Thank you TNA. TNA made me, not Rainmaker. But good scene for me. Thank you everyone." These significant appearances have generated considerable excitement among wrestling enthusiasts, leaving fans speculating about the future of TNA Wrestling.
