Rosario Dawson by no means is a newbie in Hollywood but it can't be denied that the actress' popularity grew exponentially following her involvement in the Star Wars franchise in Season 2 of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian where she played the legendary Jedi Ahsoka Tano. Aside from her current gig in a galaxy far, far away, Dawson is regularly seen on television via TBS' Go-Big Show where she serves as one of the celebrity judges.
Speaking of the talent competition, in a crossover segment to promote the show, the star of the upcoming standalone Ahsoka series shocked the wrestling world when she made an appearance in AEW Dynamite and not just as a regular fan but as one of the people involved in the heated rivalry between Cody Rhodes and Malakai Black. In case you didn't know, Rhodes is one of Dawson's co-judges in Go-Big Show.
What's even more shocking is the fact that Rosario was actually part of the wrestling action as she confronted Malakai and helped Cody distract him by jumping on his back and performing what seems to be a sleeper submission. Yup, Ahsoka Tano just got physical in a professional wrestling program! Check out the jaw-dropping clip below:

We don't know for sure if that was a just one-off deal between Dawson and All Elite Wrestling but I wouldn't be surprised if she returned to further the storyline, now that she revealed herself to be a proud member of the Nightmare Family. Heck, she could even compete in an actual wrestling match. Arrow star Stephen Amell has done it on multiple occasions and Dawson kicking butt in a wrestling ring sounds like a major possibility. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Ahsoka is coming soon to Disney+.
