Ben Stiller has been in a ton of great comedies, from Tropic Thunder to Meet The Parents. Now, the Zoolander star is commenting on a tribute that he receives from former AEW TBS Champion Kris Stander due to his classic Dodgeball movie.

During AEW Full Gear 2023, Julia Hart emerged victorious in a three-way match against Kris Statlander and Skye Blue, claiming the TBS Championship. Statlander sported distinctive attire for the occasion, paying homage to Ben Stiller’s White Goodman character from the movie “Dodgeball.”

Statlander quote-tweeted a photo of her attire and tagged Stiller in the post, indicating her determination not to lose next time. This was noticed by the man himself.

Ben Stiller replied to Kris Statlander with a bunch of emojis, showing that he not only saw this nod, but he also approves. That likely made Kris Statlander’s day as well.


Kris Statlander was quick to jump on her Instagram story to let everyone know exactly what happened, and why she was so excited about it. Now, we will just have to see what kind of celebrity endorsement she can rake up next.
