Matt Lauer Wanted To Wrestle Tom Cruise, Wisely Did Not

“So I threw this on and got into a stance but Tom was already running away screaming.”

On a recent Watch What Happens Live, Matt Lauer told Andy Cohen he wanted to wrestle Tom Cruise during their infamous Today interview, which would have been an entirely different viral sensation and not just because we would have seen a premature ejaculation on morning television. Roker does that every time El Nino blows through. Via Page Six:

“I was thinking, ‘Can I take him in a wrestling match? Could I tackle him on the set?’” Lauer, 58, shared.

“And then my mind filled with the image of a desolate red planet. How did I get there? How was I breathing? Then I turned and he was there, naked as the day he was born, eyes fixed straight ahead at my belly button. His mouth never moved, but I could hear his words Go for it, Matt. Tackle me and release your Thetans all over me– Then a lady walked by the window outside and he threw a chair. That was the end of the interview, but sometimes I still think about Mars and what we could have had–Fuck! It’s happening again, I need my pills!”
