Give him a shot. Wrestlers can get a weird reputation when it comes to acting. Some of them certainly have skills, but at the same time, a lot of them are only going to be able to get so far. That does not mean there are not opportunities for wrestlers in such a field, and now a fairly new wrestler is going to be getting the chance to show what he can do outside of the ring.
E has announced that AEW’s Austin Gunn, the son of Billy Gunn, will be part of the cast of Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules, a new reality series. The show will see children of celebrities working on a ranch for thirty days in an attempt to get out of the shadow of their more famous parents. The first episode will debut on January 12 at 9pm EST. There is no word on how many episodes will air.
Austin has done well enough in AEW so far. Check out some of his time there:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that might be able to go somewhere but I’m not sure if it is going to be the big breaking deal that Austin has been needing. If nothing else, it might get him a bit of attention, but maybe becoming a bigger star in wrestling could have the same impact. At least he is doing something though, and that is already a few steps ahead of what he is doing in AEW.
What do you think of Austin? How far can he go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
