Ryan Nemeth made his AEW Dark debut this week, in a winning effort against Marko Stunt.
This is Nemeth’s first victory on AEW; he had had a match on Dynamite last week which he lost to Hangman Adam Page.
Nemeth is the brother of WWE star Dolph Ziggler, who is known for playing the cocky heel and it seems like his brother is choosing a similar wrestling persona.
Nemeth started his wrestling career on OVW back in 2010 and wrestled in FCW and NXT as Briley Pierce before leaving in 2013. He refers to himself as the “Hollywood Hunk”.
Before his match against Stunt, Nemeth took the mic to address “the elephant in the room” which he said was the fact that no one likes him.
According to Nemeth, this dislike stemmed from envy because, among other things, he was “smart”. He said that no one wanted to admit that they “love Ryan”.
Ziggler responded to his brother’s promo and dark match by first retweeting a graphic for the match where he stated that he bet Nemeth would “blow it”.
He then retweeted a video of his brother’s promo and simply stated even he didn’t like Nemeth.
Nemeth is being advertised for his third AEW match on this week’s Dynamite where he will be facing PAC.
