The latest movie of the former WWE superstar CM Punk Jacob’s Wife just released on theatres. It is a horror movie like most of the movies CM Punk acted in. It seems like Punk is trying really hard to build himself as ‘The Best Horror Movie Star in the World.’
From the trailer of the movie it seemed quite unique and of course pretty scary. It looked like a perfect horror movie. Even though, it is not receiving many positive responses on the IMDb (Internet Movie Database). But we cannot come to any conclusion before we do not experience it ourselves.
CM Punk Compares Wrestling Fans With Horror Movie Fans
During a recent interview with the Digital Spy, CM Punk talked about his new movie and he also talked about a very interesting fact; similarities between Wrestling Fans and Horror Movie Fans. Punk said;
“Horror fans, as well as wrestling fans, will almost die on hills that they normally wouldn’t die on, meaning, ‘I discovered this wrestler first, I discovered this movie first’. And you’re almost not allowed to like it because you weren’t in on the ground floor. Horror movie fans and wrestling fans really are so passionate that they hold what they love near and dear to their heart and they almost want to protect it.
Whereas they should want everybody to like it – the more popular it is, the more eyeballs that are on it, the more content you probably get. But there is also the element of, I think the majority of people will view horror and wrestling as a lower brow entertainment, which, when it is done to the best of its ability, neither are.
I think that keeps those fans on the defensive, you know they’re used to having to defend what they love because other people will constantly remind them of, ‘Oh, that’s fake,’ or ‘Oh, that’s just a bunch of blood and boobs’ or whatever. But if you have people that are talented like Travis Stevens telling stories underneath all of the horror movie elements in their movies, you know, I think that’s when the art really shines through.”
From the previous movie performances from ‘The Best in the World’, it was pretty clear that he is a pretty good actor, and with time, his performances are getting better day by day. We are pretty sure he has an amazing future lying ahead of him in Hollywood. And we hope one day he returns to WWE too to fulfill the dream of his fans.
