Impractical Jokers star Brian “Q” Quinn has stated that he received an offer to make his pro-wrestling debut.
Speaking on Tell Em Steve Dave, Q confirmed that he’s in talks with a wrestling promotion about a one-off match.
Stating that the pitch noted that he’d be doing similar work to what Shaquille O’Neal did with AEW in 2021, Q said:
“I have a choice in front of me. I got an offer to begin a wrestling career, pro wrestling. As a wrestler. It would only be for a one-time, gimmick, storyline, but I have to go down to Atlanta to train. (I’d train for) 10 to 15 days. It can be done in groups. Why would I not? I’m at a crossroads because I’m like, ‘what do I do?’ Is this a thing where I get in there and I break spine? I doubt there’s a handsome payment in it,”
“I was told that, it’s something similar to what Shaq did, he went through a table. It’s not a heavy lift, but you want to have fun with it. I think I have to do it. It’s more of a time thing than anything, just finding the time.”
Q went on to note that he’d want the offer extended to the other Impractical Jokers, noting:
“They asked me, but I told them, ‘it has to be extended to everybody.’ I don’t think they would do it.”
While Q didn’t confirm which promotion had sent the offer, it has been speculated that it was indeed AEW, as Impractical Jokers ran for nine seasons on TruTV, which is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, as are AEW’s TV networks TBS and TNT.
Q and Sal were notably special guests at The Acclaimed’s stage show at Double or Nothing Fan Fest, and were spotted in the crowd at the March 29 pay-per-view.
