It’s a gig. Wrestlers are often compared to actors and the comparison makes some sense. While wrestlers are athletes, they are in pre-determined situations that can be seen as a performance. However, wrestlers do not always have the best luck when it comes to transitioning into acting. You do see it happen every now and then though, and now a top star is going to be trying his hand at another acting role.

According to, AEW’s Chris Jericho has landed a new movie role in a wrestling themed horror film called “Dark Match”. The film, executive produced by Jericho, has already wrapped filming and tells the story of a small wrestling promotion that has to deal with a cult and its mysterious leader. There is no word on when or where the film will be released.

Opinion: Acting is something that Jericho has dabbled in more than once over the years and it makes sense for him to want to do more of it. Jericho has the star power to do something like this and if he happens to be good at it, why not see how far he can go? Tying the movie into wrestling helps even more and I can imagine you will hear about this somewhere on AEW TV.

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