Aaron Rodgers, Olivia Munn, A Sword, And A Kendo Stick

By Ross Kelly

Unless you've been living under a rock, then you know that Aaron Rodgers is dating actress Olivia Munn. They go to UW games together, they go to Bucks games together, and they, apparently, ninja train together.

Munn has been cast as the Psylocke character in the upcoming film, X-Men: Apocalypse. Once blessed with the power of telepathy, Psylocke now is a master martial artist with serious ninja skills. Munn has been putting in work to hone those ninja skills and she decided to show off some of her sword work on a video on Instagram.

Ever the supportive boyfriend, Rodgers is in the background of the video mimicking Munn's routine. I'm not sure if "sword play" is explicitly prohibited in Rodgers' contract, but he is smartly not brandishing one and appears to be holding a Kendo stick instead. His Kendo work, however, leaves a lot to be desired and you can see why the Packers drafted Brett Hundley as they need to start grooming someone with better skills.

For Rodgers' sake, I just hope he doesn't let Munn near teammate Jake Ryan as I hear Psylocke is a fan of Wolverines.
