Former Impact Wrestling star Joey Ryan (real name Joseph Meehan), who was accused of sexual misconduct during 2020’s #SpeakingOut movement, was recently spotted by a fan at California’s Disneyland theme park. A photo of Ryan working as a handler for the Jungle Cruise attraction ended up going viral on social media.
According to an article on LATimes.com, Ryan has been dismissed from his position. Ryan reportedly worked at the theme park for about three months in a probationary status but the company decided to not keep him as a full-time employee. However, it was not confirmed that the allegations against him played a role in the decision.
Here is an excerpt from the article…
“The theme park’s screening process for potential employees includes a criminal background check, but Disneyland officials said that check did not alert them about the harassment accusations against Meehan, under his stage name, that appeared in social media posts, wrestling fan sites and sports blogs in recent years.”
