John Cena & Matthew McConaughey Chat Wrestling While On A Talk Show Together


John Cena and Matthew McConaughey were both on “The Graham Norton Show” this week. Cena was there to promote “Bumblebee” but the topic soon turned to wrestling. Cena reflected back on his days as “The Prototype” and McConaughey went on to shoot the breeze with him over his fondest wrestling memories as a kid. Here are the highlights:

Cena On “The Prototype” Gimmick:

It was awful. My first try was the Prototype which was half-man and half-machine & 100% crap. I used this ability to talk rather monotone and would say things authoritative and just when I said I’d kick your ass at the fairgrounds on Sunday I would rewind it and say it again for you [demonstrates].


CENA: [flabbergasted] No!

MM: I’m in.

McConaughey On His Wrestling Fandom:

MM: I got kicked out of Hirsch Coliseum in Shrevport for pelting Skandor Akbar with a bag of tomatoes from the eighth row.

CENA: Skandor Akbar was a man dressed as a sheik that used to throw fire.

MM: Yes and he managed King Kong Bundy. He was like 484 lbs. And remember The Missing Link from Parts Unknown.

CENA: Remember the green face? Spit green mist?

GRAHAM NORTON: They sound really good!

CENA: Yeah! Entertaining….and I’m John Cena.
