We Hear from Nic Nemeth

Just 48 hours before Nic Nemeth challenges Moose for the TNA World Championship at Rebellion, we hear from the “Wanted Man” inside the 2300 Arena. Nemeth pays homage to a hardcore legend, Sandman, as he drinks beer amongst the fans. Nemeth is addressing the iMPACT! Zone when he’s immediately interrupted by the TNA World Champion, Moose. Moose tells Nemeth that throughout his career, he’s never been able to beat “The System”. Nemeth fires back and says that everyone would love to see him become the new TNA World Champion at Rebellion and that he’s here to stay in TNA. Moose calls Nemeth a choke artist. Nemeth admits that he’s doubted himself in the past – but right now, he’s the best he’s ever been. Nemeth vows to walk out of the Palms with the TNA World Championship as Moose backs off.
