24 December 18th, 2012 Sonny Corinthos Vs. Victor Newman! Would You Like To See The Ultimate Soap Smackdown? GH’s Maurice Benard Would!


Over the last few times we have spoken formally with General Hospital’s superstar Maurice Benard, he has mentioned that he would love the chance to for his soap alter-ego Sonny Corinthos to go toe-to-toe with Genoa City’s Victor Newman in a soap crossover, somehow, someway!

Last night on Benard’s Twitter account, the  uber-popular Daytime Emmy winner mentioned it again when tweeting, “Idk what was said but I respect @ebraeden & would love to see a faceoff between Sonny & Victor Newman. Theyd have to put me on 2 phone books.”   Of course, Maurice was referring to his height difference to faceoff with Ole’ Vic as played by Daytime Emmy winner himself, Braeden.

So, would you like to see a Sonny Corinthos and Victor Newman showdown? A way for the two to crossover from Genoa City to Port Charles and back again? Or, perhaps a reviving of the “What-If” series with network soap crossovers online? And, if Sonny and Victor were to face-off in the tough guy category, who do you think would have the upper hand? Let us know!

    I go for sonny all the way,my man


    SUSAN replied

    yea yea yea love my sonny

    but love victor as well
    it could be good soap opera storyline


  2. Christine says:

    That is asking an awful lot for TWO networks that have one foot out the door already for continuing soaps on their networks.

    The only way Maurice is going to bring a mobster or bad guy personality to Victor Newman’s front door is to leave GH and have Jill give him a job … and we know she would in a heartbeat.


    Marisa replied

    Do us a favor and go join Y&R!!!


    SUSAN replied

    sorry no way i am a 100% maurice fan, love sonny cornithos

    and so does alot of other fans I guess, since abc just signed him a new

    they new better than to let him walk since steve burton chose to leave
    just my opinion i love sonny myself

    Jeffrey Anderson replied

    No way no Jose on…sorry

  3. Jeffery says:

    I think both actors could do a spoof online without referring to each other’s character by name. From my perspective, Sonny would win in the short term because he has henchmen in the shadows at all times. Also, Victor has a heart condition. Achilles Heel?


  4. tim says:

    Why stop there,throw in Stefano from Days,and Eric from B&B and we can have a 4 way dance.


    SUSAN replied

    stefano yes with victor and sonny i can not see eric going toe to toe with either
    but i do like him on b&b

    one problem with b&b they have so much bed hopping everyday and its get old
    after a while, but that is only my opinion

    prefer gh, y&r and days to b&b but know bold and beautiful has large fan following and hope we can keep the last 4 soaps on air for a while


  5. Iakovos says:

    It seems like a fun idea at first but to be honest, without the promise of any redemption or radical change of course, the exercise would be futile. Sometimes, these anti-heroes do wear on me with their repetitive plot lines and the way they never seem to learn to be changed by the experiences.


  6. Mary SF says:

    In the soap reality universe Sonny and Victor would have no reason to battle each other, more than likely, Victor would hire Sonny to do a number on Jack or they would be business partners.


  7. toscanti says:

    He needs to stay with GH and leave Y&R alone. There is no place for him Y&R and if JFP thinks there is, she is as ridiculous as MB wanting to come over. I wish Sonny would go away for ever. Tired of JFP making every show she is on all about her buddies. Look forward to CBS and Sony replacing her arrogant self.


  8. Andy says:

    That would be a hell of a lot of mumbling in one place! Closed captioning/subtitles would be an absolute necessity.


    Mary SF replied

    LMAO- its so funny, because it is so true- thanks you made my day Andy


    Marisa replied

    LOL!!!! mumbling and card reading!!!

    1loveabcsoaps replied

    I know, I’ve read that about Sonny, and I don’t see that, but Victor on the other hand, YES!


    k/kay replied

    Andy too funny for words !

  9. boes says:

    Oh No, no no no. Two worse characters I can’t imagine, and in the same scenes together would be altogether too much. The whole place would smell like burning ham.

    And between MB’s forgetting his lines, and EB mumbling his as he reads them off his ever-present cell phone, it would be more like a Saturday Night Live skit than anything else.

    Fever dreams, MB. Take two acting lessons and call us in the morning.


    SUSAN replied

    mb and eb both can act circles around half the other actors on either show

    that is why cbs and abc keep both the on air

    and let us not forget they both have won emmys for the role they play
    just my opinion

    i love both mb and eb but mb is my fav


  10. aria says:

    two narcissitic characters going at it? it would be never ending ego maniacs going at it and do we have that much air time to satisfied them? yikes!


  11. MK says:

    Victor would win, hands down. He is much wiser and threatening than sonny.


  12. MBmomof3 says:

    Would LOVE to see these two egos go toe-to-toe (or phonebook to toe). Maybe they could do a “Funny or Die” skit. I think the fans would love it. Show a “human” side to theses larger than life characters. It would also bring some attention to their shows that might interest some lapsed fans.


  13. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    Victor VS Sonny, Victor would win. Victor has more staying power. And I wouldn’t want Mo on Y&R, and I don’t even want him on GH. I’ve never been a fan of the actor nor his character. Sonny is a needy guy, a very needy guy. Stay on GH. And let Victor do his own work, without being interrupted from a no-good mobster.


  14. Patrick says:

    This reeks of press/publicity for the two old horses…. dare i say this… i’m so over, Victor, Lording over his presence…. OK… i’m stubborn about no more Abbotts….,

    someone posted above…. DAYS – Stefano / and ERic – B&B , now there’s two fine men.
