It’s something else. Over the years, a lot of wrestlers have tried their hand in acting. The two industries do seem to go hand in hand and it isn’t crazy to imagine a wrestler becoming a successful actor. However, that has rarely seemed to be the case, as a lot of wrestlers who have gone into the other field have not exactly been thriving successes. The Rock has been quite the example in the field, but now someone else is seemingly making a run at it.
Back in 2017, John Hennigan (better known as John Morrison of SmackDown fame) released a film called Boone: The Bounty Hunter, featuring himself as both the star and co-writer. The film was a step above the usual direct to video fare that you see from wrestlers and seemed to keep Hennigan’s interest in the field alive. Hennigan had some screen presence to him and now we are going to be seeing him in another movie role.
This seems interesting. Check out a trailer for Hennigan’s new film:
A trailer has been released for a short film called The Speed Of Time featuring Hennigan in a prominent role. According to Yahoo, the film is about Hennigan going back in time to team up with his past self to stop an app which delivers pizzas before they are ordered, thus threatening the space time continuum. According to IMDB.com, the film also features Nic Nemeth (Dolph Ziggler). The film is scheduled to be released on Thursday September 17 on Dust, a platform specializing in science-fiction short films.

Opinion: The trailer looks intriguing enough and it certainly does not seem to be something that is trying to be anything more than something goofy and fun. Hopefully they can do something entertaining because something like this could go somewhere. Hennigan certainly seems to like acting and even if it stays on a lower level like this, he is at least trying and if it works out, good for him.
