Freddie Prinze, Jr., joins WWE: How does this make you feel?

Posted on


Freddieprinzejr_lMy pal Mandi Bierly thinks it’s great that Freddie Prinze, Jr., has joined World Wrestling Entertainment’s creative team, where he’ll have “a behind-the-scenes role contributing to WWE’s weekly television and pay-per-view programs.” And while I don’t begrudge the guy for bringing a regular paycheck to the Prinze-Gellar household — it’s a more respectable/responsible gig than headlining another Scooby Doo sequel, after all — my first reaction to the news was something like, “That ABC sitcom of his was a hot honeyed mess, but this seems like an unusually harsh career trajectory for a one-time viable movie actor.”

Now it’s your turn to weigh in: If Freddie’s WWE deal had an accompanying reality show, it would/should be called:

A. Extreme Penance: Thespian Edition
B. I Don’t Know What You Did With Your Career This Summer
C. W.W.Egads

Oh, I can already hear Mandi complaining I didn’t leave an option to point out the awesomeness of this partnership. Fine.

D. He’s All That (And a Red Lycra Speedo)
