It could work for him. Wrestlers have a weird reputation when it comes to action, because they are considered people who are always acting but only able to do one thing. That is not entirely true though and some wrestlers have had quite the success in the acting world. Now someone else is trying their hand in the same world, and it might be something that works out well for him.

During an interview with Ariel Helwani, AEW’s Maxwell Jacob Friedman announced that he has filmed a voiceover for an animated movie that is set to be released at some point in 2023. Friedman said that he could not give any more details on the project. He went on to say that he wanted to see how he could do in acting, comparing himself to John Cena, the Rock and Batista.

Opinion: This is something that could work, but at the same time Friedman is the latest name on a long list of wrestlers who have dabbled in acting. Some of them have done rather well, but those are the minority compared to those who have not gotten very far. Friedman is one of the best talkers in wrestling, but it should be interesting to see if he can translate that to acting in any form.

What do you think of Friedman? Which wrestler would be the best actor? Let us know in the comments below.
