Matthew McConaughey Got Kicked Out Of A Wrestling Show Twice In One Night
In an interview with Maria Menounos (via her Better Together show), actor Matthew McConaughey discussed his love of pro wrestling, if we’ll see him in a ring, and his current fandom.
“I’ll say… not too much,” e,” said the actor when asked if he’ll ever wrestle. “Because as you know, you can’t say too much about these things, but it is something that interests me.”
McConaughey is a life-long fan, and even has gotten kicked out of shows in Texas for being too rowdy.
“I got kicked out of Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport Alabama for pelting Skandow Akbar with tomatoes,” McConaughey said. “I got kicked out, I snuck back in through the bathroom window, and then I got kicked out a second time, the same night for spitting a loogie on King Kong Bundy.”
He also discussed a conversation he had with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his children starting to wise up about the inner workings of pro wrestling.
“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 live, ‘oh I just hooked him.’ And I love the suspension and disbelief that, because my kids and I watch and they’re starting to get that when they go, ‘oh this is fake.’ I’m going, ‘what are you talking about no way’ and they’re starting to get, because I won’t give them the wink yet, but they’re starting to get that in there there’s a there’s a bit of one you know, and then, so two of them are like, ‘this isn’t fake, well this is real,’ so they’re gettin’ it, and that’s so much of the fun of it, it’s coming up this, this is real.”
