The brother of two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler (real name Nick Nemeth) is in serious trouble, as Cleveland.com reported on Tuesday that 30-year-old Donald Nemeth had been sentenced to 15 years in prison for his involvement in the January 2016 death of Joshua Mascol. Nemeth pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, kidnapping, and robbery charges last month.
Another man, 52-year-old Donald King, was sentence for 17 years for the same charges. The incident happened during an alleged drug deal gone bad. Both King and Nemeth were sentenced in separate trials, as Cleveland.com reports that the two men kept blaming Mascol’s death on each other.
Nemeth was originally arrested for aggravated after surveillance footage showed him on his phone leaving the scene.
Ziggler is a two-time world champion in WWE, winning the World Heavyweight Championship in 2011 and 2013. Ziggler has since mostly been used as a midcard talent for the pro wrestling goliath, and he redebut on WWE television last Tuesday after having taken several weeks off.
