Ryan Nemeth Reveals He Has A Clause In His AEW Contract Allowing Him To Act

Former AEW star Ryan Nemeth recently appeared on an episode of the Developmentally Speaking podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how he wanted to do both acting and wrestling at the same time and how his contract with All Elite Wrestling had a clause allowing him to act.

Nemeth said, “My main focus has always been the same.” “I want to get people to smile, you know? So that can mean a lot of things, right? That could be wrestling. That could be doing comedy, that could be writing, that could be acting. I want them to feel something and I want to make a living doing that. So I’m not really picking one thing and I never will and no one has ever made me.”

“Every AEW contract I’ve ever signed, I had put in there that I cannot be penalized or punished in any way for booking an acting job and going. They were it was very cool, so I always appreciated that. I was like, ‘Hey, it’s literally my name, Hollywood Hunk. So, I have to go act sometimes.’ I’ve only had to miss, I think, two AEW shows ever and one when I had to go do reshoots for Iron Claw. I remember I had to shoot, get on a red eye, and then arrive. It was one of those real close calls, but I didn’t [miss it].”
