Matthew McConaughey Teases Wrestling In WWE

Could he follow in the footsteps of Mr. T and Stephen Amell?

Matthew McConaughey has often been spotted at WWE shows over the years and he previously bonded with John Cena on The Graham Norton Show over their shared love of professional wrestling. 

McConaughey could be prepared to take his fandom one step further, though. During a recent interview with Maria Menounos, the True Detective star hinted he was interested in stepping inside the squared circle. 

He said: "I'll say... not too much, because as you know, you can't say too much about these things, but it is, uh, it is something that interests me." 

Also during the chat with Menounos, McConaughey talked about his youth watching World Class Championship Wrestling and told the story of when he was kicked out of a wrestling show twice in one night.

"You know I've been, I've been, I got kicked out of Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport, Louisiana for pelting Skandor 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."
