Fresh from his starring role as a wrestler in *The Iron Claw*, Jeremy Allen White says he'd be open to stepping into the ring for WWE himself, but under three conditions. The 32-year-old actor speaks to reporters at the 2023 Emmy Awards on Monday, January 15, saying he'll still play it coy about making that wrestling debut — provided they give him enough notice to get ready.

"I don't know. I would have to have so much warning that that would be what they wanted me to do," White said, according to Deadline. What had White most excited, though, in the possibility of joining WWE was the chance to work among co-stars Zac Efron and Harris Dickinson from the film The Iron Claw.

"I would be so into it, but only if Zac and Harris were there with me and I had time to prepare," he further expressed, intimating at some kind of collaborative venture into wrestling with his co-actors.

White's Emmy Triumph

Last night proved special for White when he took home his first Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work depicting the character Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto in The Bear.

Addressing the crowd inside Los Angeles' Peacock Theater, he shared, "I'm so proud. I'm so full of gratitude to be standing in front of you all. I love the show so much. It filled me up. It gave me a passion, it set a fire in me to match the beautiful work done by Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo, these extremely talented creators of the show.

The Bear made a significant impact at the Emmy Awards, with wins not only for White but also for his co-stars Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach, along with triumphs in the writing and directing categories for Storer. The Hulu series, which also scooped the title of Outstanding Comedy Series, outshining competitors like Abbott Elementary, Barry, and Ted Lasso, continued its award season success following its victories at the Golden Globe Awards on January 7.

There, it won Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy for its second season, with accolades for both White and Edebiri.
