AEW star gets SUPERKICKED onto How I Met Your Mother Star at Indie show

Last updated

In a turn of events that pretty much no one saw coming, the world of professional wrestling collided with Hollywood in a spectacular fashion. At the Republic Of Lucha’s show on Monday, October 30th, AEW wrestler Penta El Zero Meido faced off against Impact Wrestling alumnus Sami Callihan.

But the real surprise of the evening was the unexpected involvement of popular actor Jason Segel, best known for his role in the hit TV series “How I Met Your Mother”.

A Star-Studded Evening

The night began with Callihan singling out Segel, who was in attendance. The former Impact Wrestling star didn’t hold back, throwing shade at the actor.

However, things took a dramatic turn during the main event. In a sequence that left fans in disbelief, Penta found himself out of the ring, ending up on Segel’s lap.

Without missing a beat, Callihan seized the moment, delivering a superkick that involved both Penta and the (apparently) unsuspecting actor.

Penta’s Busy Schedule with AEW and Indies
