He was a three-time All-Mid-American Conference champion, winning the 165 lb (75 kg) tournament in 2000, 2002, and 2003; as of 2010, he is the last wrestler from Kent State University to have won three amateur wrestling championships.He was assigned to their developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), debuting as "Nick Nemeth".Since then, Ziggler has held WWE's World Heavyweight Championship twice, the Intercontinental Championship five times, the United States Championship once, and was the 2012 Money in the Bank winner.
They later became a part of the ongoing scripted feud between WWE chairman Vince Mc Mahon and Shawn Michaels.
The heel Mc Mahon brought in the Squad to attack Michaels on numerous occasions, including placing them in multiple handicap matches.
In a backstage segment later that night, DX placed all members into a crate stamped "OVW, Louisville, Kentucky", a reference to the developmental territory from which the Squad had come.
Nemeth returned to OVW on January 17, 2007, at the television tapings, again using his Nick Nemeth ring name, along with Mike Mondo, formerly Mikey in the Spirit Squad, as the "Frat Pack".
The match never started, however; instead the Spirit Squad attacked Michaels, and, as part of the storyline, shattered his knee with a steel chair.
DX played various sophomoric jokes on the Squad and the Mc Mahons, as well as defeating the Spirit Squad in handicap tag team matches at Vengeance and a clean sweep in an elimination handicap match at Saturday Night's Main Event.He feuded with Paul Burchill and challenged unsuccessfully for the OVW Television Championship, losing a championship match against then-champion Ken Doane on August 12, 2005.After the death of Eddie Guerrero, Chavo Guerrero dropped the "Kerwin White" character, and Nemeth no longer played the role of his caddy and tag partner.All media, photos, trademarks and copyrights seen on are owned by their respective companies.
