Stephen Amell Spoke Highly Of AJ Lee After They Worked Together
Heels star Stephen Amell complimented AJ Lee after he had the chance to work with her. The former Arrow star joked that it was nice to have her around because CM Punk is so grouchy. In all seriousness, he highlighted Lee as a performer who delivered a great performance.
“Well, it was nice having her around because Phil is so grouchy all of the time. [laughs] No, it was wonderful having AJ around,” Stephen Amell said. “We’ve done a nice job of dipping into the wrestling pool a little bit with AJ, with Phil, Mick [Foley]. It’s fun.
“Look, wrestlers want to be actors, and actors want to be wrestlers; it’s a tale as old as time. It’s nice when we get them to come on, and it’s nice that they acquitted themselves so well. All three people that I’ve mentioned, they’ve thrown together some really great performances.”
Amell’s comments were part of a Heels roundtable with co-star Alexander Ludwig. The conversation featured a panel of: Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone.com, Jeremy Lambert of Fightful.com, Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com and Brian Jones of PopCulture.com.
