Former WWE star and current TNA star Nic Nemeth recently appeared on an episode of Busted Open Radio, where he talked about a number of topics including cashing in the MITB briefcase on Alberto Del Rio to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

Nemeth said, “Coolest thing ever. I had no idea [it was happening] because … I lose every night, I wasn’t talking too much, I got beat up. I tried to cash in like 400 times and was kicked in the face every time. … I got to a point where I go, ‘This may not happen, and if it does happen, maybe they’re gonna pull the rug out from underneath me, or maybe I lose it the next day.’”

On when he found out about the cash in:

“That afternoon, they said, ‘Here’s what’s gonna happen.’ Del Rio’s gonna be hurt. Your music’s gonna hit. You’re gonna hit him with the briefcase five or six times in the ankle and you’re gonna pin him.’ That would’ve been so heartbreaking. That would’ve been so anti-climactic.”

On the fan’s reaction to the moment:

“The reason everyone cheered so much is because they’re the reason I was there in the first place. That was a very special thing that I wasn’t prepared for. It hit me like 500 bee stings as I walked out on that ramp. And I go, ‘Oh man, when they see the rest of this, they’re gonna lose their minds.’ And they did. And I will never be prouder of something.”
