Nic Nemeth says that he doesn’t see himself seeking a return to WWE. The former Dolph Ziggler explained his reasoning for not wanting to go back to the company during an interview on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, noting that he wanted to leave the company because he didn’t have anything left to do there.

“I don’t think so,” Nemeth said (per Wrestling Inc). “I am calculating, I am planning out the next couple of years, but the next few years really don’t involve New York (WWE) in any way, shape or form. So it’s not a ‘I’m going to do this just so they want me back.’ I asked to leave because I feel like in the position I’m in, there’s nothing more to accomplish. So even if the world becomes set on fire by how awesome I’m doing, it’s not to be like, ‘See, guys.’ Well it is, ‘See you guys,’ but it’s not to say, ‘See, guys, I’m coming back.'”

Nemeth added, “This is a totally different chapter of my life. I’m looking to do this for the next 15, 20 years if I can make it work. And as much as I do calculate and I’m really thinking about all the moves, that’s absolutely not one.”

Nemeth is now working for TNA and has also appeared for NJPW, GCW and more.

I’m happy to hear that, and hope he sticks to it. Because honestly they didn’t even treat him right. Dude was super over in the early to mid 2010s, and could’ve been a main event player if used correctly. I rather see him out there doing great things in smaller promotions, than barely on WWE tv, and when he is, jobbing.

Triple H regime canned his ass.....safe to say they weren't going to ask.

Should've left before his big jobfest to Goldberg and maybe he would've done something of value.

Honestly... fuck the guy who asks him about possibly returning to the WWE only weeks after him debuting in TNA. What kind of shitty, possible WWE-Fanboy-like interviewing is that? :smh

Money, probably. Only one that can answer that question is him.

So he wasn't confident in his abilities enough to test the open market.....but now that he got released/no he quit.....what exactly?

Simple answer is he got complacent.

Happens to a lot of guys when they’re bringing in a good amount of money.

He got comfortable and when they kept offering it to him, he just took it.

Now that money is gone and he’s getting his fire back.
