Freddie Prinze Jr. Reveals How He Was Hilariously Introduced To Pokemon


During the latest edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, Freddie Prinze Jr. commented on a WWE promo class that featured AJ Lee and Trent Beretta where they did a repetition acting exercise and went back and forth on the names of Pokemon. He said,

“It was my second stint at WWE and I’m just running, basically, an acting class. The same techniques we would do, just repetition. ‘Tony, it’s a pleasure to meet you,’ you’re locked into those words. ‘It’s a pleasure to meet me?’ We go back and forth until someone feels so stupid they have to change the line, whoever changes the line loses. Miz would kill at that kind of stuff. Trent was in there with AJ (Lee). They were going to do repetition. They did repetition, but it was Pokemon. I was too old, I didn’t know what Pokemon was. He goes, ‘Hey, that’s a sweet Raichu.’ She goes, ‘That’s a sweet Raichu?’ It’s going back and forth and I literally look over to Big Show [Paul Wight] and (Matt) Cardona and I went, ‘what the f*ck is a Raichu?’ Big Show popped too loud. I go, ‘You guys, what are you talking about right now?’ They were literally going back and forth about a Pokemon, that was my introduction to Pokemon.”
