Chris Jericho and “Clerks” Director Kevin Smith Face Off for New York Comic Con

All Elite Wrestling’s Chris Jericho and filmmaker and actor Kevin Smith had a match for this year’s New York Comic Con — but not in a ring.

Instead, both celebrities faced each other on Thursday for “Movie Trivia Schmoedown,” a pop culture Jeopardy-type game show where their knowledge on popular fandoms was put to the ultimate test. Jericho and Smith, along with “Movie Trivia Schmoedown” hosts Kristian Harloff and Mark Ellis were all present for the game show event via video chat.

Chris Jericho and Kevin Smith endured three rounds and a final “Sudden Death” round, with pop culture questions spaced out in movie genre categories such as “Action/Adventure,” “Comic Book Movies” and “Horror/Thriller.” Questions about actors like Meg Ryan and Kevin Smith himself, directors and decades like the 90s were also presented.

To find out if the inaugural holder of the AEW World Championship was victorious or fell short during this epic matchup, check out the link to watch the entire showdown on the New York Comic Con YouTube channel. New York Comic Con events will be live-streamed this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, from October 8 – 11.
