Dolph Ziggler superkicks a zombie’s head off in new gimmick video

After he was fired by WWE towards the end of last year, Nic Nemeth (fka Dolph Ziggler) returned to pro wrestling earlier today in an angle at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 18.

Nemeth hasn’t wrestled a match since May 2023, but the former show-off didn’t waste any time re-introducing himself to the world after his NJPW appearance. Here’s a video of the Wanted Man stylishly kicking ass in action movie sequences during a zombie apocalypse:

I popped big for the “Groovy” one-liner taken from Evil Dead, as well as the ridiculously over-the-top Ryan Nemeth zombie decapitation via superkick. Nemeth also finds time for a rubber chicken cameo, which immediately made me think of Cody Rhodes.

This video is consistent with Nemeth’s recent approach of calling himself The Most Wanted Man in professional wrestling and the hottest free agent in the industry.

Are you looking forward to seeing a lot more Nic Nemeth in 2024? Give us your reaction to his new video in the comments below, Cagesiders.
