They’re trying something else. Wrestlers have a weird situation when it comes to acting. While they are acting in front of the camera, they are only seen as wrestlers, meaning they do not have many opportunities in mainstream acting roles. Some wrestlers are able to pull it off though and now two more successful wrestlers are going to try their hand at a different form of entertainment.
Earlier this week, the IInspiration (Cassie Lee/Jesse McKay) announced that they will be taking a hiatus from the ring for the time being. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the word backstage at this week’s Impact Wrestling TV taping is the team is hoping to try their hands at acting. There is no word on if they have any start on their efforts or any roles in the works. Lee and McKay last wrestled on Saturday at Impact Wrestling’s Rebellion pay per view, losing to the Influence.
Opinion: This sounds like something that makes sense on paper but I’m not sure how well it is going to work in reality. A lot of wrestlers have tried their hands at acting like this before and it very rarely works out. Maybe it is something that the two of them could make work due to the novelty of having a pair of women who act together, but they have quite a task in front of them. If this is what they want to do though, then hopefully their luck stays strong.
