Matt Hardy Says This Former WWE Star ‘Adds Something’ to Everything

Nic Nemeth, formerly known as Dolph Ziggler, was released by WWE last year, but has since found undeniable success elsewhere in the wrestling world, appearing in promotions like NJPW, TNA and AAA. During his talk on “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” Nemeth’s former WWE colleague Matt Hardy discussed what Nemeth brings to the table in each promotion.

β€œI think Nic Nemeth brings something to wherever he goes,” Hardy said. “First of all, this is actually his first dance because he’s outside (WWE). … (That means) you have to fight for everything you get, but there’s a great life to be made if you work hard and you breaks, especially when you’ve got a WWE TV stint behind you. And Nic obviously had that – he was there for 18 (or) 19 years.

With such a long WWE run behind him, Nemeth will bring attention with him wherever he wrestles. Additionally, young wrestlers can learn a lot from an artist who has spent so much time working at the highest levels in the industry.

Nemeth was most recently the IWGP Global Heavyweight Champion until he lost the title to David Finlay at NJPW Wrestling Dontaku. However, the former WWE performer still holds the AAA Mega Championship, which Nemeth captured last month after a match against controversial former WWE star Alberto Del Rio. At the same time, Nemeth has continued to work in smaller promotions across the country.

β€œHe’s killing it,” Hardy continued. “Last Sunday I was at the AML show where he… returned to the team with his old tag team partner Brad Attitude. … They had a great house, man. They had over 1,100 people in that room that night , and it was great.”
