TNA Wrestling returns to Las Vegas on Saturday, April 20, for the Rebellion pay-per-view, originating from the Palms Casino Resort near the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.

TNA’s high-energy brand of pro wrestling will be back at The Palms in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 21, to film action for future episodes of the company’s flagship TV show, iMPACT!, which airs every Thursday night (8 p.m. ET) on AXS TV.

TNA World Champion Moose & the No. 1 Contender for the title, Nic Nemeth, will both be in Las Vegas on Wednesday & Thursday, April 17-18, for media interviews and appearances around the city.  For instance, Moose and Nemeth will be throwing out Ceremonial First Pitches at the Las Vegas Aviators baseball game on Thursday, April 18, against the Tacoma Rainiers.  The Aviators are the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland A’s, while the Rainiers are a minor league affiliate of the Seattle Mariners.

Tickets for both TNA shows in Las Vegas are now on-sale at

Moose reclaimed the TNA World Championship in January at the Hard To Kill pay-per-view extravaganza in Las Vegas.  Quinn Ojinnaka, the real-life Moose, played for four teams over seven seasons in the National Football League (NFL), including the New England Patriots, before transitioning to pro wrestling, making his wrestling debut in 2012.  His NFL career included time as teammates with legendary quarterback Tom Brady while playing for one of the best NFL head coaches in history, Bill Belichick.

An offensive lineman, Ojinnaka played 62 NFL games after playing at Syracuse University and was selected in the fifth-round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons.  Moose and Bill Goldberg are the only former NFL players from the modern era to have gone from the NFL to become the World Champion of a pro wrestling company.

In fact, there are only four others in addition to Moose & Goldberg to have ever gone from the NFL to World Championship glory in pro wrestling, including Bronko Nagurski, who is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The others are Ernie Ladd, Dick the Bruiser and Gus Sonnenberg.

Sports Illustrated spotlighted Moose and his record-setting journey from the NFL to IMPACT World Champion:

Formerly known as Dolph Ziggler in WWE, Nic Nemeth made his TNA debut at the Hard To Kill event in January, confronting then-new TNA World Champion Moose.  Nemeth hit Moose with the Danger Zone before fleeing the ring and celebrating with the crowd.

Nemeth defeated former TNA World Champion Steve Maclin in March at the Sacrifice event, held in Windsor, Ontario.

A Cleveland native who graduated from Kent State University after setting several school records as a wrestler, Nemeth made his pro wrestling debut in 2004.  He was a champion in singles and tag team action during his near-20 year career in WWE, including a 2-time World Heavyweight Champion and 6-time Intercontinental Champion.

Nemeth is a diehard fan of his hometown Cleveland Browns.
