Ryan Nemeth Recalls Leaving FCW & Venturing Into Acting



On a recent edition of the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, Ryan Nemeth discussed the challenges he encountered in FCW, which prompted his transition to acting.

Nemeth revealed how a shift in leadership at FCW resulted in his displacement, ultimately leading to his departure from WWE to pursue an acting career.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his issues in FCW: “Someone else took over FCW and that person had … the only interest he had in me was getting rid of me as fast as possible. When Dr. Tom [Prichard] was in charge and Dusty had a lot of pull and say, I was the literal top 10 of FCW on the wall on a board and I was like three or four… I really thought like, this is reassuring. To come into work every day and know that I’m putting in all this effort and getting something out of it, that was a good feeling. And then the regime shifted and I’m embarrassed to tell you I was in all the top training, polishing classes, and then overnight I was in the beginner class with Baron Corbin and Mojo Rowley and models who had never wrestled before. I like both of those people a lot but at the time I felt very angry about that.”

On his decision to leave WWE and get into acting: “I wanted to quit and I remember having a lot of like emotional breakdown moments privately, you know, where I would, like a movie, I [would] like drive to the beach at like 11 at night on a Wednesday and be like, ‘What am I doing with my life, dude? Obviously, this guy wants to fire me.’ I was thinking, I got to just move to LA and just do acting and writing and, you know, if this is the only company in the world and whoever doesn’t like me that’s pretty much it… It was very quick. I, like, basically, suddenly moved to LA, I didn’t have even somewhere to live,” recalled Nemeth. “I think I went there with my car and like a few laundry baskets of clothes and just thought like, I have some friends there, I’ll figure it out and I did you know.”
