Ugh! Its Halloween! During October, HollywoodLife is active Sounds of Halloween, where some of your favorite geeks from the worlds of music, film, television and pop culture choose the songs that should be on your Halloween 2022 playlist. For this part, it’s All Elite Wrestling’s Athenawho is no stranger to having some costume pleasures.
Athena is no stranger to Halloween either. “Well, I got married on [the holiday] at a Dungeons & Dragons/Harry Potter/Game Of Thrones wedding,” she told HollywoodLife when discussing her upcoming plans. Her and “Professional Wrestling Monster Hunter” Matthew Palmer tie the knot in 2021, not only proving that all is fair in love and wrestling, but also that spooky season can be as romantic as Valentine’s Day.
Although Athena’s Halloween will be celebrated to celebrate her first wedding anniversary, there will be plenty of ‘biggest mashin’ in the coming weeks. The AEW roster boasts creatures of the night as strange and terrifying Abadon“Native Monsters” Nyla Roseand current TBS Champion (and cosplay enthusiast) Jade Cargill. There’s a chance Athena could end October with a championship belt around her waist – much better than a full-size candy bar. In the meantime, check out her picks for HL’s Sounds of Halloween. And remember to follow AEW’s Rampagebroadcast on TNT (check local listings).

HollywoodLfe: What’s your standout Halloween celebration?
Well, I got married on Halloween in a Dungeons & Dragons/Harry Potter / Game of Thrones wedding, But the other thing that comes to my mind is my brother, and I just cheat or treat at houses that leave bowls of candy on the porch lol. Because it is free for all/grab all situations. We’ve had a lot, so a trickier trick or treat isn’t harder.
What do you think is the most popular Halloween costume this year? What SHOULD be, in your mind?
I really think it should be Ugly Sonic from 2022 Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers. But I feel it will be Black Adam or maybe Lady Thor
Do you have any special traditions on October/Halloween?
I watch A trick and the first Halloween Town every year around this time, but normally I’m celebrating my anniversary. Soo delicious food and a great Halloween themed dessert.
If you had the budget and the freedom to do anything, what horror movie would you star in? You can remake any past movie or you can create your own.
Pumpkin Head!!!!!! Hand down. We can bring back Lance Henrickson! I don’t even care which character I am! I just love this movie! Would love to be a part of it in any way.
What is the agenda for October and the rest of the year?
I have one [tabletop roleplaying] mini series coming soon on my twitch and youtube channels. (Twitch.tv/halfdragonap) I’ll also be playing some new video games coming out in November.
But you can join weekly wrestling with All Elite Wrestling on TBS, TNT and youtube!
