Ryan Nameth Speaks About Being Part of GLOW Season 1
“That whole year of the pandemic, I was doing stunt coordinating, wrestling, and TV shows, and music videos and movies,” Nemeth noted. “I was a little apprehensive about doing indie bookings during all that.
It was all so mysterious that I thought like unless it’s with a major company, I’m gonna hold back on the shows, but luckily in LA, for some reason that year, everybody wanted to do wrestling stuff. “And I was just available to do that.
Snapchat did a wrestling app video game thing. In A.P Bio, the NBC show did a wrestling episode, and they brought me in and said, ‘Can you help us with dialogue, finding a ring, finding wrestlers, planning out the matches?’ It was pretty cool.
Some music videos and then just finishing up the movie HEEL we did. I was in a ring a lot but not having matches, kind of like segments of matches”. Many wrestlers struggled during the pandemic as the US was placed under a tight lockdown.
Many small businesses did not survive and only the top wrestling promotions in the world could operate during the pandemic. Ryan then spoke about GLOW. He was going to be part of the latest season but it got cancelled due to the pandemic.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, I was on the final season of GLOW before it got cancelled,” Ryan Nemeth revealed. “So working on it with Chavo, it was awesome. We filmed one episode. Just finished one episode and then everything got put on pause, and we thought okay, in January, we’ll pick up again.
And I was a boyfriend of one of the characters, and I was thinking, maybe this is a one-off episode, but she pulled me aside one day and said, ‘I think you’re in the whole season,’ and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s a big break.
Wrestling and acting, that’s perfect. That’d be great,’ and then we just kept hearing, well, they’re gonna delay it more, delay it more. And then, hey, guys, we’re just canceling the whole thing. I thought, come on, just make a movie or something”.
