Actor/Filmmaker Kevin Smith Says He’d Love To Return To AEW

The premiere episode of AEW Dynamite back in 2019 saw Actor/Filmmaker Kevin Smith, along with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot co-star Jason Mewes make an appearance and be featured in a segment with The Hybrid 2 (Angelico and Jack Evans) and Private Party (Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen). Speaking with ET Canada, Kevin Smith made it perfectly clear that he would love to go back to AEW if the opportunity comes and he will happily do anything they tell him to do because it is all part of the fun.

This is what Kevin Smith said:

“In a heartbeat, I would go back.” “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. 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 also talked about how wrestling has been around for a really long time that you have seen almost everything there is to see in terms of storylines and matches that sooner or later things will change like we will see a lot more cinematic matches and the film and movie industry will be combined with the sports entertainment industry as the audiences and the fans have to be shown more new things in order to keep them interested and hooked in the product.

This is what Kevin Smith said:

“Pretty incredible.” “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*s 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.”
