Former “Spirit Squad” member, the “Showoff” of the WWE “Dolph Ziggler” was featured in a recent college alumni magazine, “Kent State magazine to be precise. In their recent edition they ran an Alumni Association Member Profile on none other than 2003 graduate Nic Nemeth, otherwise known to WWE fans as Dolph Ziggler. Nic Nemeth, ’03 – American Professional Wrestler Nic Nemeth – or as he’s known in WWE, Dolph Ziggler – is an American Professional Wrestler. Nemeth joined WWE in 2004 and since then has won the WWE Intercontinental Championship, WWE United States Championship and World Heavyweight Championship. Prior to his WWE career, Nemeth wrestled in the 165-pound weight class at Kent State and became a three-time Mid-American Conference champion. As of 2003, he held the record for the most wins in Kent State’s wrestling history with 121 wins. Nemeth holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Kent State University. What did you like most about Kent State? The friendships for sure. I would not have the friends I have now, if I had not attended Kent State. I still stay in touch with a lot of friends from Kent State. Favorite place to hang out at, on or around campus: I really enjoyed going to the Robin Hood on Thursdays and hanging out at our house on Erie Street. Kent State person who influenced you the most: Gertrude Steuernagel. She was the political science chair and my favorite professor by far. Favorite Kent State memory: We had a dual meet against Ohio University for the MAC Championship in 2003. We packed the bleachers and had t-shirts made. We beat Ohio University by one match and became the MAC champions that year. Greatest lesson you learned from Kent State: I passed this one along to my brothers. No matter what you are doing if you work harder than everyone else, you have a chance. I walked on to Kent State, and my freshman year I was beating a senior out for the spot. Biggest life accomplishment: Winning the World Heavyweight Championship in WWE last year was a special moment for me. When I won, the place erupted. It was great having so many people behind me and supporting me because I had worked so hard to get where I was. WWE put it on their list of all-time greatest moments. Why I became a lifetime member of the Alumni Association: I still have a lot of contacts from Kent State, and it is really cool to give back to the school that helped me out so much and shaped the man I am today. I travel a lot but still follow Kent State on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date on what’s going on at Kent State. I also try to make it back for Homecomings and wrestling meets every year. I like to wear my Kent State shorts to let everyone know the pride I have for Kent State. You can see the Dolph Ziggler profile page from the Kent State Magazine below.
