In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, it’s not uncommon for superstars to make headlines both inside and outside the ring. The latest buzz surrounds WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler and his apparent reaction to a backstage confrontation in AEW involving CM Punk and Ryan Nemeth.
The Backstory: CM Punk and Ryan Nemeth’s Confrontation
Ryan Nemeth, an AEW star and Dolph Ziggler’s brother, reportedly had a face-off with CM Punk during the June 21st Dynamite taping.
This confrontation was seemingly sparked by a tweet from Ryan, in which he labelled Punk as “literally the softest man alive” following Punk’s return promo at the Collision event.
Ziggler’s Cryptic Tweet
Dolph Ziggler, never one to shy away from expressing his opinions, recently took to Twitter to mark ‘hunk appreciation day’.
Given that Ryan Nemeth’s nickname is the ‘Hollywood Hunk’, Ziggler’s tweet seemed to be a veiled reference to the ongoing drama.
His tweet read: “I can’t stand that scumbag, hunk but it is #HunkAppreciationDay so I will abide & “be a hunk” how are you celebrating? #hunkappreciationday”.
Accompanying the tweet was a picture of Ziggler donning Ryan Nemeth’s ‘Hollywood Hunk’ t-shirt, which prominently featured the AEW logo.
