Ryan Nemeth was a wrestler during NXT’s early days at Full Sail University. Ryan has been wrestling for a decade but he never had a good run in WWE. However, his run at All Elite Wrestling is actually much better than his run at WWE.
Ryan was with Chris Van Vliet where he spoke about his WWE run and his AEW run being a kind of reunion for him. He recently lost to Hangman Page.
Ryan MeMeth on his WWE Run Not Being That Great
“Being [in AEW] is kind of like a huge reunion,” Nemeth said.
“I have so many friends from NXT or other parts of wrestling. Walking in the locker room felt like home. I went to AEW to see Amanda Huber (the late Jon Huber/Brodie Lee’s wife) because I knew there was going to be a birthday for Brodie Jr.
I thought I would surprise her and say happy birthday. I used to babysit him in Tampa. I wanted to say hi to her, I also secretly had my gear with me. They asked me, ‘Since you’re here, do you want to wrestle?’ And I said sure.
I think it went well, I blacked out but I think I won (laughs). I was honored to debut on Dynamite. It felt great to be back in the ring. During shutdown I have been doing a lot of wrestling but not in front of a live crowd. It’s been a lot of stunt work or coordinating for TV shows.
AEW are super into promoting creativity, very motivational and positive environment”. Ryan is actually Dolph Ziggler’s younger brother. Ryan stated that he has made a huge effort to differentiate himself from his older brother.
“There are similarities. We are brothers, we are related, we were both trained by the exact same people in wrestling,” Ryan Nemeth said. “We grew up wrestling for the same school together. But I will say I’ve spent my entire wrestling career looking and dressing the exact opposite of him.
He had blond hair, I dyed mine black. He wore pants, I wore shorts. No matter what I do, for a decade, any time I’m in a match, the Internet says I’m a carbon copy of him. But we’ve had pretty different lives.
He was a college wrestler, I focused more on acting and writing. In the past few years, to do so many of these things together is awesome. I never felt like we were competing for anything though”.
