Danielle Fishel Karp was a guest on the Wrestling With Will podcast and discussed her history with professional wrestling as a fan. The former Boy Meets World star is presenting at next week’s AEW Dynamite Awards with her husband, director Jensen Karp, and said that she’s still in the dark about who actually won because they taped an announcement for everyone nominated.
“I was very honored that they asked [Jensen and I] to do that. We’re presenting Breakout Male and Female… You know what’s funny? I don’t know the winners. They gave us the cards and all of the names were on the cards and we had to do it one by one as if they all won. So they’re taking it very seriously. I honestly do not know who won.”
Fishel Karp has become known as an avid wrestling fan, and started with watching PWG before becoming a big AEW fan. The actress was asked about the possibility of ever stepping in a ring, and while she says she has entertained the thought, she feels that she’d be more suited as a manager.
“It’s something Jensen and I have talked about. I love athletics… I am naturally athletic and when I put my mind to something and I train for something, I can really get into it. So there have been a few times where I thought man, what if I just like trained and became a wrestler? What if just had a second career, just a brand new career of just being a wrestler? Then I thought oh my gosh, my body would hate me. Like… I’m gonna be 40 this year. I don’t know if that’s the time to decide I’m gonna start wrestling. But would it be fun to be like a manager? Yes. I would love to do something like that. I would do it in a heartbeat.”
