Paul Walter Hauser discusses his appearances on AEW TV.
The Golden Globe winner popped up in a backstage segment on the January 11 episode of AEW Dynamite, which was held in Los Angeles. He then appeared in the ring on the January 13 episode of AEW Rampage, where he was confronted by Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh. Hauser insulted them, and Jarrett smashed his guitar over the actor's head. The group then stole his Golden Globe award, and they have used it on AEW programming multiple times since then.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Hauser described how he reached out to AEW President Tony Khan and asked if he could come to the company's show in Los Angeles. He noted that he pitched the idea of using his Golden Globe as a weapon, and his involvement turned into a whole segment.
“I went to wrestling, All Elite Wresting, AEW, and I got to goof off and do a whole segment with a couple wrestlers. I’m buddies with this guy, Tony Khan, who owns the company, and I told him, I was like, ‘Can I come? You guys are in LA, I’ll bring my Golden Globe, maybe you guys can use it as a weapon.’ I didn’t know that he was gonna bring me into the ring and do this whole bit, and this guy, Jeff Jarrett, who is clearly on his final chapter of wrestling, is deciding to strike me with a guitar over the head," Hauser said.
When asked whether he know about the guitar shot ahead of time, Hauser stated that he knew they were going to do a promo segment, so he thought of some things to say. He recalled how Dutt grabbed him, and when he slapped the manager, Lethal hit him. Jarrett then smashed him with the guitar, and the group stole his award.
"I knew that there was going to be a bit, and they told us we were going to kind of do these little promo things. They’re like, ‘Think of a couple things to say.’ Then his guy grabbed my shirt, Sonjay Dutt, and I just slapped him, and then that use Jay Lethal comes and hits me in the chest. I don’t even know where it hit me, but I fell. They picked me up and did that whole bit and took my Golden Globe," Hauser said.
