After a prolific career in amateur wrestling, where he established several school records for Kent State University, Nemeth signed a development contract with WWE in 2004 and was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he wrestled under his real name. He was promoted to WWE’s Raw brand shortly afterwards in 2005, playing the caddy sidekick to Kerwin White.

He was sent back to OVW shortly afterwards, being given the name Nicky and joining the cheerleading-themed Spirit Squad, who debuted on Raw in January 2006 and won the World Tag Team Championship once before returning to OVW that November. In September 2007, Nemeth was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), where he won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship twice, with Brad Allen and later Gavin Spears.

Upon his return to the main roster in September 2008, Nemeth was repackaged as Dolph Ziggler. Since then, he has held the World Heavyweight Championship twice, the Intercontinental Championship six times, the United States Championship twice, and the Raw Tag Team Championship once. He was also the sole survivor of two Survivor Series elimination matches, as well as the 2012 Money in the Bank winner, and has headlined multiple pay-per-view events for WWE.
