The Nemeth brothers speak about their future as a team. 

After Nic Nemeth’s near-20 run with WWE came to end, he began working independent dates, arrived to New Japan Pro-Wrestling and began working with TNA

Nemeth is the reigning IWGP Global Champion and at TNA Rebellion, he’ll be challenging Moose for the TNA World Championship. 

The newest episode of Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling features both Nic and Ryan Nemeth. They addressed the speculation that following Nic’s WWE departure, he would be heading to AEW to tag with his brother. He’s open to tagging with or feuding against Ryan. 

He reiterated that he just got out of a long relationship with WWE. Ryan stated that he’s been trying to get Nic to come to AEW since his first weeks at the company. 

Nic: Absolutely, it is (a possibility of me tagging with my brother) but, my favorite thing was, when I left WWE, everyone goes, ‘Oh, you’re going to AEW to tag with your brother.’ I go, my brother’s great and I will tag with him and we will do a million projects together over the next 20 years. But I’m leaving this bubble of saying I’m the best one here for the last 10 years and I need to go prove that and became World Champion 10 times over, everywhere I go just to prove it to myself and everybody else and then we can get into Ryan and I bumping into each other, being a part of each other’s stories, becoming a team to five years later, fighting each other to the death, and that’s just at home, not at work.

Ryan: Since the first few weeks I was at AEW, I was trying to get him to go to AEW (he laughed). But, we’re all very open-minded about what’s happening and he’s on a pretty solid quest right now, taking over everywhere so, if we end up tagging together somewhere or fighting, you know? We’ve been on the same shows. We were on this big Puerto Rico, big WWC pay-per-view a month or two ago. That was pretty fun to be on the same show and I had a little run-in during his big match with Matt Cardona in GCW. I mean, we’re out there. Things are happening. 

On 4/3, Nic and Ryan are hosting their variety show ‘HUNKAMANIA’ in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
