Judd Lormand of SEAL Team decided his kids needed to see some fists flying and headlocks. So, he took them to AEW Dynamite.
Lormand, who plays Commander Eric Blackburn on the Paramount+ military drama, shared some incredible photos from Wednesday night. AEW, or All Elite Wrestling, was in Atlanta with a live card.
“I’ve always loved pro wrestling and, to no surprise, my twins are eaten up with it as well,” Lormand writes. “This past Wednesday night, our family and some good friends attended the @allelitewrestling show outside of Atlanta and some incredible memories were made. Too many great pics to post (thanks @dakotarunnels22 📷) but here are a few.
“The kids knew they were going but had no idea they were sitting front row and going backstage to meet some of the stars of the show,” the SEAL Team actor said. “The smiles on their faces made my holiday season 🙌🏻 Live life. Make memories.
“So many people to thank for making this incredible night happen:

My boys will remember this night for a LONG time. #aewdynamite#allelitewrestling”.
‘SEAL Team’ Actor’s Kids Get Into Spirit Of AEW, Dress Up As Orange Cassidy
His twins dressed up as pro wrestler Orange Cassidy. Among the pictures, you will see the kids and Cassidy posing for a picture.
AEW wrestlers in photos include Dustin Runnels, Darby Allin, Billy Gunn, Cassidy, Adam Cole, Bryan Danielson, Christian Cage, Sammy Guevara, Arn Anderson, and Dax Harwood.
Well, Lormand can be seen on SEAL Team as new episodes appear on Paramount+.
In case you missed it, Outsiders, the show moved from CBS to the streaming service this season.
The SEAL Team actor said that Blackburn is the strategist of the group.
“Every now and then, he’s out on the field with the guys, doing what he has to do,” Lormand said. “But he’s typically the guy at command who’s telling them where the guys are and how fast they need to get out.”
OK, so just how did he get the role?
Lormand said that as an actor, “you’re always trying to get work. You audition for everything you can. It’s the equivalent of throwing a bunch of things against a wall and seeing what sticks.”
The actor later admitted after he got the job on SEAL Team that he still hadn’t read the full script.
