Actor Paul Walter Hauser has revealed how his AEW television appearances came together.
Cobra Kai actor and Golden Globe winner Paul Walter Hauser popped up backstage in an interview with Renee Paquette on the January 11 edition of AEW Dynamite in Los Angeles.
Hauser then appeared in the ring with Paquette and Danhausen on the January 13 episode of AEW Rampage, where he was confronted by Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh. He insulted them, which led to Jarrett smashing a guitar over his head and the group stealing his Golden Globe award.
Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Hauser detailed how he reached out to AEW President and CEO Tony Khan and asked if he could come for the company’s show in Los Angeles.
Noting how he pitched the idea of using the Golden Globe as a weapon and his involvement in the segment, he said:
“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.”
When asked whether he knew about the guitar shot ahead of time, Hauser said:
“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.”
