Nic Nemeth, formerly known as Dolph Ziggler in WWE, was released from the company in September and took some time before deciding on his next career steps in 2024. Fortunately, he is now gaining traction in prominent wrestling promotions like TNA (Total Nonstop Action Wrestling) and NJPW (New Japan Pro-Wrestling). This new phase in his career marks a fresh start after his lengthy tenure with WWE.

Throughout his WWE career, Nemeth secured multiple championships and was celebrated for his exceptional in-ring talent. Despite his abilities, many fans and critics believed he was underutilized, frequently being booked to lose matches. Nevertheless, his reputation for elevating his opponents and making them look impressive was widely acknowledged and respected within the wrestling industry.

In a candid interview on the podcast “Eyes Up Here With Francine,” Nemeth discussed the reasons behind his frequent losses in WWE. He revealed that the decision to book him as a loser was a running joke among WWE higher-ups aimed at ribbing Pat Patterson, a legendary WWE figure who was a strong supporter of Nemeth. This insight provided a new perspective on his career trajectory within WWE.

Additionally, Nemeth shared that Vince McMahon, the then-chairman of WWE, expressed a desire for Nemeth to remain with the company indefinitely. Despite this, Nemeth stated that he doesn’t miss dealing with the behind-the-scenes politics and booking decisions that plagued his WWE career. Moving forward, he is focused on new opportunities and growth in other wrestling promotions, free from the constraints he previously experienced.
