John Silver has made a name for himself on Being The Elite by being a comedy character as part of the Dark Order. Silver's stock was boosted thanks to his appearances on Being The Elite where he got to show off more of his personality.
Getting over on BTE helped him get over on AEW Dynamite, which eventually led to an AEW TNT Championship match.
But don't let Silver's penchant for wanting to have a good time and joking around fool you. He will still kick your ass.
"Most people don't know this but, I can make a joke and then beat the shit out of someone," Silver said during a Q&A session on AdFreeShows. "It doesn't matter to me. I don't think I always need to be angry because that doesn't make you a tough guy. I can joke around and then choke you out. I do kickboxing and jiu-jitsu. I did amateur wrestling growing up. It's not in my personality to be angry and try to be a tough guy. I'd rather make you laugh and then break your jaw then say, 'I'm going to beat you up.' It's a cliche. I can act like myself. I can joke around and then beat the shit out of you in the ring."
Silver was not only unsuccessful in his quest to capture the AEW TNT Title, but he suffered a shoulder injury in the match.
