AEW star John Silver is never one to take things too seriously. His humor has now stretched over into his predictions as to who the Owen Hart Cup "joker" entrants will be.

On the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite, both Samoa Joe and Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. will have to face mystery "joker" opponents in the quarter-finals.

While there are many rumors as to who the two mystery opponents could be, John Silver has weighed in with own prediction — Batman's biggest villain, The Joker.

@EvilUno The actual joker from Batman

Fellow Dark Order member Evil Uno chimed in and to the surprise of absolutely no one, he agreed with Silver's pick.

@SilverNumber1 Evil Uno’s betting on the same thing.

The likelihood of seeing the likes of Mark Hamill, Jack Nicholson or Joaquin Phoenix walking down to the ring to face Samoa Joe or Britt Baker is highly unlikely, but one can always dream.


The Owen Hart Cup Semi-Finals will also get underway on AEW Dynamite

With the finals of the Owen Hart Cup taking place at Double or Nothing on May 29th, the tournament has picked up the pace in recent weeks. The upcoming episode of Dynamite will feature four bouts from the tournament, with both "jokers" being revealed.

After picking up victories on the May 11th edition of Dynamite against Dax Harwood and Darby Allin respectively, Adam Cole and Jeff Hardy will clash in the tournament's first semi-final match.

The winner will move on to the finals of the tournament. The other spot in the ultimate contest will be decided in the second semifinal match. On the May 18 episode of AEW Dynamite, Samoa Joe will face the Joker entrant, and Kyle O'Reilly will take on Rey Fenix. The victors will face off next week, and the winner will punch their ticket to the finals.
