“I couldn’t believe it” – Mojo Rawley on being cast in ‘Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins’

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins opens in theaters on July 23 in the United States, and if you saw the latest trailer, you might have caught a fight scene featuring former WWE Superstar Mojo Rawley.

In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Rawley discuss his WWE career and his future. When the subject of the new G.I. Joe movie came up, Rawley was very excited to talk about it.

“Dude how incredible is that?” Mojo Rawley said. “I had every G.I. Joe toy there ever was, and now I am in the movie years later. I couldn’t believe it when I got the call I was so excited. I didn’t think that it was true at first. I just got out of a yoga class and I got this voicemail mentioning it and I’m like you’re kidding! I was in my Zen at that point, so much for that.”

” It was an incredible experience, it was really difficult not saying anything about it for a while,” Rawley continued. “We filmed that a bit ago and now it’s finally coming out. I’m ready to talk about it finally.”
