Joey Ryan was an indie darling before allegations of sexual misconduct caught up to him. The 42-year-old had appeared in numerous wrestling promotions including WWE, ROH, and NWA. Then he couldn’t get work after so many people came out against him as part of the #SpeakingOut in June 2020 movement.

A photo of Ryan recently made its way to social media. The photo, posted by Twitter user @Mr_GQ_Cantu, shows Ryan working as a handler on Disney’s Jungle Cruise ride. It appears that Ryan is indeed getting some acting work, and he’s working for Disney, but he’s certainly not involved in Jungle Cruise in the same way The Rock was.

Just in case anyone wanted a Joey Ryan update, he’s working as a handler at the Jungle Cruise attraction in Disneyland. Not joking lol

The Jungle Cruise is one of the many magic kingdom attractions at the Disneyland. The attraction is a simulated riverboat cruise that travels along a waterway. The Rock’s Jungle Cruise film is loosely inspired by the attraction.


It seems that Ryan has finally given up on his attempts to make pro wrestling comeback. He was last advertised for Wrestling 4 Women Charity that had ties to his Bar Wrestling promotion.
