Renowned professional wrestler and Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Nemeth is navigating an exceptionally bustling period in his career. Balancing commitments with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and Ring of Honor (ROH), with appearances on the web series "Being the Elite," and a dynamic presence on Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike picket lines, Nemeth is in constant motion.
Moreover, the wrestling dynamo is persistently searching for new film roles. Despite the whirlwind of engagements, he always finds time for improv comedy, especially when collaborating with his brother, the WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler.
In a recent social media blitz, Ziggler shared a poster for an upcoming performance at Hollywood Improv, scheduled for June 13. Billed as "Clotheslines and Punchlines," the gig promises a wrestling-inspired theme, offering a unique blend of humor and in-ring high jinks.
Ziggler and Nemeth will be joined by an eclectic mix of performers that straddle the worlds of wrestling and comedy.
Star-Studded Comedy Event Lineup
Among the performers is Anya Zova, a former prospect for "WWE NXT" who has since transitioned into acting.
Jenn Sterger, previously associated with AEW, and renowned standup comedian Brad Williams, known for his enduring friendship with wrestler Hornswoggle. The evening's proceedings will be kept in check by comedian Jay Washington, who will act as the event's master of ceremonies.
Ziggler's affinity for comedy isn't a recent development. He has been juggling his wrestling career with standup comedy performances since 2010, even stepping away from the WWE circuit to headline tours. Over the years, Ziggler and Nemeth have often joined forces, birthing the improv comedy show "Flying Chuck" with their mutual friend and fellow wrestler John Morrison back in 2010, alongside numerous other comedic ventures.
On the wrestling front, Ziggler was last in action on the May 15 episode of "Raw," Unfortunately, he fell short in a battle royal aimed at determining the number one contender for GUNTHER's Intercontinental Championship.
Nemeth, on the other hand, has also encountered a dry spell in the ring, recently missing out on a tag team victory with Peter Avalon against The Iron Savages in the last week's "ROH on HonorClub" episode. Despite the recent setbacks, their passion for wrestling remains undeterred, balancing their time between the ring and the stage with aplomb.
