The Hangover star Ken Jeong has hit back at AEW wrestler MJF after he roasted the actor on live TV this week.
Ken was in the crowd for Wednesday's (11 January) AEW Dynamite when world champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman, better known as MJF, took a swipe at him. Take a look:
"Speaking of irrelevant, apparently we’ve got some celebrities in the house tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, Ken Jeong’s here!" said the wrestler, prompting some cheers from the crowd.
"You may remember Ken from his role of Mr. Chow from The Hangover, yeah!
"What was that, Ken, like 20 years ago? But it’s okay, right? We can still see your hit comedy series on ABC, Doctor Ken!
"Oh, that's right. We can't because it got cancelled!"
Ken, ever the performer, stood up in the crowd when MJF called him out, and stared down the pro wrestler.
And after MJF's comments went viral on social media, Ken finally responded.
Sharing the video to his own Twitter account, the Masked Singer star simply commented: "Disrespectful."
Thankfully, the comedy king can take a joke just as well as he can give one, and the whole interaction was all in good fun.
Ken, who has always been a wrestling fan, also wound up in a stand-off with 6ft 10in star Big Bill - who went by Big Cass during his WWE days.
Loves to flirt with danger, does our Ken.
Also bearing the brunt of some good-hearted roasting at last night's fight was Freddie Prinze Jr, who also has his own connections to the wrestling world.
Freddie was once a part of WWE's creative team, hosts the podcast Wrestling With Freddie, and last year, unveiled plans to launch his own wrestling company.
"I’m excited for it," he told podcast listeners last year.
"I’m putting together my little wrestling piggy bank. I’m putting some money in there for the next year and a half, a little over a year and a half, and then I’m going in on my indie wrestling brand."
Calling out Freddie on Wednesday night, MJF told the crowd: "Freddie Prinze Jr is in the house tonight," prompting cheers and chants.
"A Freddie chant, really?! A Freddie chant?! Okay. You may remember Freddie from She’s All That?
"I know I don’t, because I was born in 1996 and unlike all of you, I’m not a dinosaur! The only thing I remember Freddie from is when he played a supporting role to a CGI talking dog.
"So to me Freddie, with all due respect, you ain’t nothing more than a Scooby Dooby Douchebag!"
Way to hit him where it hurts.
