They work well together in various ways. Last month, CM Punk fought and lost his second UFC fight in his home town of Chicago. After the fight was rather underwhelming, it was heavily suggested that Punk needed to either fight somewhere else or move on from fighting altogether. It just wasn’t working for him any longer and that meant he needed to find something else. While wrestling again didn’t seem likely, there was another avenue to take and he seems to be doing just that.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, Punk and his wife AJ Lee will be co-starring in the upcoming remake of the 1977 horror film Rabid. The film will star Laura Vandervoort and Ben Hollingsworth with Punk and Lee playing supporting characters. There is currently no word on when the film will be released. Neither Punk nor Lee have any major acting experience outside of a few voiceover roles.
Some happier times for the two.
Opinion: Sure why not. Punk and Lee are a real life married couple and that gives you a special kind of chemistry which has been shown on screen before. The announcement doesn’t seem to suggest that they’ll be the stars of the movie so maybe it’s a way to get their feet wet. I have no idea how much acting the two of them are interested in doing but maybe it’s just something they think sounds fun to do once.
Do you think Punk and Lee will act more? Will either ever wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
