After his release from WWE in September, Dolph Ziggler aka Nic Nemeth took his time before making a significant career move in 2024. Nemeth drew attention with his debut in TNA, but has yet to join AEW. Recently, he shed light on his discussions with AEW President Tony Khan.

In an interview on Eyes Up Here, Nemeth shared that Tony Khan had assured him of complete creative freedom if he decided to join AEW. Despite this enticing offer, Nemeth initially wasn’t eager to sign with any promotion.

Nemeth, now known as “The Wanted Man”, expressed his appreciation for Khan’s promise, highlighting the allure of having the freedom to pursue his creative vision within AEW.

Here’s what the former World Heavyweight Champion said:

“I talked to Tony a long time ago and he was like, ‘Just so you know, you can do anything you want while you work here’.

He wants everyone to have a good time and doing the best possible thing. That’s awesome, and a lot of people did think I was going to AEW, and I love a bunch of people in AEW, I love AEW, Tony’s freaking great. I was just weighing my options and figuring out, I didn’t have a plan.

I’ve got this thing in my head. I wanna go and make a name for myself on the independents. Just to see if I can go outside of this New York bubble.

I wanna see if I can hang, or be better, or the best everywhere around the world … I just got out of a long term relationship, I’m not looking to get engaged, or engaged to be engaged.”
