Matthew McConaughey teases plans to join the WWE. The academy award winner is a self confessed fan of the wrestling promotion.
Matthew McConaughey has openly spoken about his love for wrestling in the past. You can see him turn into a child every time he discusses it. It was very apparent it during his appearance on the Graham Norton show with John Cena back in 2018 or in his recent interview with Drew McIntyre.
The Oscar winner was at it again. He spoke about the wrestling promotion with Maria Menounos on the latest episode of her “Better Together” podcast. This time however, the 51 year old hinted at wanting a little more than just being a fan.

During their conversation, McConaughey admitted that he was interested in working for the WWE, although he didn’t specify in what capacity.
“I’ll say not too much ’cause as you know, can’t say too much about these things,” he said. “But it is something that interests me.”

McConaughey also recalled the conversation he had with the Rock about how he turned from a good guy to a bad guy.
“The Rock was telling me his story, about his storyline from good guy to bad guy, and how he felt it click in one night while he was there like, ‘Oh I just hooked him,’ “ McConaughey said.
The Greenlights author also revealed that his three children, Levi, 12, Vida, 10, and Livingston, 8, are all fans of the WWE as well. What makes the experience fun for him is that the kids are still at that phase where they’ve suspended their disbelief regarding the performances they see on television.
“I love the suspension and disbelief, ’cause my kids and I watch it,” he shared. “And they’re starting to get that when they go, ‘Oh this is fake.’ I’m going, ‘What are you talking about? No way!’ Because I won’t give them the wink yet, but they’re starting to get that in there, there’s a bit of one, ya know? Two of them are like, ‘this isn’t fake, it’s real!’ “
“That’s so much of the fun of it, is going, ‘This is real,’ “ he added. “And it is.”
