In a recent heart-to-heart with "Drop the Mic," Ryan Nemeth from All Elite Wrestling (AEW) shared his exhilarating journey on the set of "The Iron Claw," a biopic that delves into the legendary Von Erich wrestling family's saga.

Released just as the holiday season was kicking off in the United States, the film has been stirring waves, particularly for its authentic portrayal of the wrestling world. Nemeth, cast as the iconic Gino Hernandez, expressed his profound connection to the role, noting how wrestling has always been a pivotal part of his life.

"Gino is one of my all-time favorite wrestlers," he revealed, recalling the awe he felt on his first day on set. He was greeted by a scene that immediately affirmed his belief in the project: co-stars Zac Efron and Harris Dickinson, deep in study of classic Von Erich matches from the 1980s.

"It was a clear indication of their dedication," Nemeth said. "They were fully immersed in understanding every nuance of these wrestling legends." This commitment to authenticity wasn't just limited to the lead actors. Nemeth himself, well-versed in Hernandez's legacy, spent considerable time revisiting his matches to perfectly capture his essence for the film.

His efforts didn't go unnoticed. "You brought Gino to life," director Sean Durkin praised him after filming.

As the film garners attention, Nemeth's reflections offer a glimpse into the passion and dedication behind "The Iron Claw." It’s not just a film about wrestling; it's a celebration of the sport's rich history, an homage to its legends, and a testament to the unrelenting spirit of those who live and breathe wrestling. This sentiment is palpable in every frame of the movie and in every word of Nemeth's enthusiastic account.
