- Speaking with Shakiel Mahjouri for ET Canada, Kevin Smith commented on appearing on AEW TV and what he thinks about the world of professional wrestling cinematic matches.
Kevin Smith on future All Elite Wrestling (AEW) appearances:
“In a heartbeat, I would go back,” Smith says. “I love Jericho. So anything he needs from me, I’ll happily go do. I imagine we’ll kind of jump back out into the ring when it’s around ‘Clerks III’ time. As we saw recently, Rosario [Dawson] got involved which was pretty awesome.
“AEW does it very artfully,” he adds of celebrity crossovers. “It doesn’t feel like, ‘Oh this guy is doing it to reach a brand new audience.’ It feels like they’re doing it because it’s part of the fun.”
Kevin Smith reacts to cinematic pro-wrestling matches:
“Pretty incredible,” he says. “Think about it. The sport has been around long enough that you’ve seen every variation that there is to see in terms of storylines and action. It’s a foregone conclusion that sooner or later they would be like, ‘Let’s make it a movie, for heaven’s sake…’ They can do it every week on the show. They have some of the best writers in the business, some of the most creative and whatnot. Writing dialogue on the fly in many cases.”
“I feel like we’re going to see a lot more cinematic [matches]. Not just cinematic, but multimedia takes on a sport that we’ve seen presented the same way since it became a cable phenomenon. How do you keep them in your seats after all these years? You always have new crops of people coming in, but how do you keep the old f**kers sitting around? You start showing them some new things. You start showing them a version of what they are achingly familiar with that can reinvigorate their interest all over again. Why not make it look good? We’re talking about film and entertainment, take your time and throw up some lights and you’re going to have something that looks as good as something you’d see in a movie theatre.”
- Opening tonight's edition of IMPACT Wrestling on AXS TV will be Finjuice & Chris Sabin vs. Chris Bey & El Phantasmo & Hikuleo.
- AJ Styles' Styles Clash Gone Wrong On Corey Graves - AJ Styles: The Missing Matches Volume 2 is available now:
- Check out the synopsis for the season finale of Heels on Starz
In “Double Turn,” the culmination of all Jack’s (Stephen Amell) efforts finally pays off as the DWL is featured on the biggest stage in its history, but when outside-the-ring drama enters the squared circle, there’s a lot more on the line than the championship belt.
