On a big night for wrestling fans and to the shock of many, Saturday night witnessed the crowning of a new IMPACT WRESTLING Champion, as Moose asserted his dominance in the ring. However, the celebration was short-lived, as the wrestling world saw the explosive entrance of Nick Nemeth, formerly known as Dolph Ziggler, into the realm of TNA.
After Moose’s victorious bout against Alex Shelley to secure the TNA World Championship, Nemeth made a dramatic entrance, attacking Moose and electrifying the crowd. The atmosphere reached a fever pitch as Nemeth, amidst chants of “Holy s—,” confronted Moose face-to-face. Swiftly avoiding Moose’s counterattack, Nemeth executed a super kick followed by his signature Zig Zag finisher, leaving Moose laid out in the ring. Nemeth tore through the crowd, celebrated with the fans, and ripped his outer shirt to reveal a second shirt confirming his signing with TNA.
Building on this momentum, Nemeth is already set to make his in-ring debut for TNA at the Snake Eyes event in Las Vegas. His opponent for the night will be Zachary Wentz of The Rascalz, promising an intense showdown and proving TNA is wasting no time getting him into the ring.
This unexpected twist in Nemeth’s career trajectory comes after his recent appearance at the NJPW Wrestle Kingdom pay-per-view, hinting at the exciting opportunities that have opened up for him since parting ways with WWE.
