Matthew McConaughey's New Career Path Is Wrestling, As He Hints He May Get In The WWE Ring

There is something about wrestling that can be appealing. It gives the impression of strength and stamina however the reality of the situation is that WWE shows are not legitimate contests, but the matches are purely entertainment-based performance theater which are often scripted and choreographed. But do not be fooled there is every possibility of injury.

With that in mind it may come as less of a surprise when you learn that 51 year Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey hints at plans to wrestle with WWE.

Speaking to Maria Menounos on her Better Together podcast, he says: 'I'll say not too much because as you know, you can't say too much about these things, but it is something that interests me.'While talking about potential future plans to step into the ring.

The actor was recently seen as part of WWE's virtual audience cheering on champion Drew McIntyre as he defeated The Miz.

WWE themselves wrote something that makes it seem like his part in WWE is more imminent. While referencing his appearance they wrote;

'McConaughey was recently spotted in the WWE ThunderDome cheering on a Drew McIntyre victory.

'Could his next encounter with the WWE Universe come inside the squared circle?'

Recalling a conversation with Dwayne Johnson who was a wrestler and later became an actor, 'McConaughey said:

'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."'

The Oscar winner also opened up about his family and said that his three children – who are seven, 10 and 12 years old – are also fast becoming fans. “I love the suspensions [of] disbelief because my kids and I watch and they’re starting to get that when they go, ‘Oh this is fake,’” he said. “I’m going, ‘What are you talking about? No way!’”

This is not the first time McConaugheyhas talked about a career change. it is reported that in November last year he considered a career in politics. An actor turned wrestler turned politician is an interesting career path. Tell what you think.
