Exclusive: Nic Nemeth’s Appearance At Wrestle Kingdom 18 Kept A Secret Backstage

Nic Nemeth and his brother Ryan Nemeth made their New Japan Pro Wrestling debut at Wrestle Kingdom 18, to the surprise of everyone.. including the locker room backstage.

Prior to the Winner Take All IWGP & NJPW Strong Tag Team Title Match at Wrestle Kingdom 18, Nic Nemeth, formerly known as Dolph Ziggler, and his brother Ryan Nemeth appeared and made their way to ringside to get a front row seat for the match.

Sources backstage at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 18 relayed to me that Nic Nemeth’s appearance was just as much a surprise backstage as it was for everyone else. One source stated, “Where the f*ck was he hiding?” Another source added, “Never saw him or anything until he went out.”

We will keep you updated if we hear anything more about plans for Nic and Ryan Nemeth after debuting tonight at Wrestle Kingdom 18.
