It’s calling his name. Wrestling and acting has a weird relationship, as there is always the question about how much acting there is on a wrestling show. Wrestlers are seen as actors but it is a bit more complicated than what they are doing. It can be interesting to see wrestlers trying their hands at acting and that might be the case again with a rather prominent star.
According to Fightful Select, AEW’s Maxwell Jacob Friedman is said to have a growing interest in acting. Friedman was reportedly in Los Angeles this week to explore acting possibilities. This comes after Friedman has announced that he has recorded a voiceover role for an animated film due out next year. There is no word on what this means for Friedman’s future in wrestling.
Opinion: This is something that you see happen every so often, but you never know how things are going to work out. Some wrestlers do find success in acting, but there have been several who have never gone anywhere outside of dabbling at best. I’m not sure how well Friedman would do in the acting world, but he has done so well in wrestling that I can see how it could be rather appealing.
What do you think of Friedman’s acting chances? Which wrestlers would make the best actors? Let us know in the comments below.
