During his AEW Dark: Elevation match against Ryzin, Ryan Nemeth busted out the Pee-Wee Herman dance because....why the hell not?
Paul Wight was very confused by the dance, but Tony Schiavone immediately recognized it.
And Pee-Wee Herman himself gave Nemeth his props.

I have embraced the Pee Wee dance as part of my repertoire since I left NXT. It’s very effective psychological offense.— Ryan Nemeth (@HotYoungBriley) April 29, 2021
The man is a genius! https://t.co/L4na1aGaCa
There you have it, Ryan Nemeth is Pee-Wee Herman approved.
Herman has ties to wrestling beyond his enjoyment of seeing Nemeth perform his dance on AEW Dark: Elevation.
He guest-starred on the November 1, 2010 episode of WWE Raw, won a 2010 Slammy for Guest Star Shining Moment of the Year, and did a segment with The Rock at WrestleMania 27.
