Here's Why Joe Rogan Turned Down Alex Jones For A Match At WrestleMania 35
Popular podcaster Joe Rogan spoke with Flake News to discuss why he turned down Infowars host Alex Jones' challenge for a match at WrestleMania 35. Rogan is the host of the podcast The Joe Rogan Experience and has been friends with Jones since 1998. Martial arts instructor Eddie Bravo accompanied Rogan for the interview.
"I couldn't fight a friend, not at WrestleMania, not anywhere," said Rogan. "He just needed to calm down, smoke weed, hang out with the gay frogs, do whatever he needs to do. Plus, I have two black belts in Jiu-Jitsu, so I really don't know what might happen if we really went at it."
"Come on, don't you know WWE is fake?," said Eddie Bravo. "It's not like you're in the octagon. A WWE match is not as dangerous. You two could have pulled it off."
"There's where you're wrong, Eddie," said the host of The Joe Rogan Experience. "Yeah, the outcome is predetermined 99 percent of the time, but most of those moves are real. Have you watched WWE much? A lot of those guys can get pretty busted up and I really couldn't see myself putting Jones in that type of danger."
Rogan told Flake News that the beef between himself and Jones has dissolved and they're back in good terms. The podcast host also added that he is "totally not a covert government propaganda agent like Jones' claimed."
"There's no more beef. No need for any wrestling match or UFC fight between myself and Alex," said Rogan. "He stopped declaring war and spreading crazy conspiracy theories about me. I'm not a CIA misinformation agent. But I would invite one on my show, that would be an interesting conversation."
"That would be interesting," said Bravo. "You ever think Jones is just projecting and he's the secret government propaganda agent? He's pretty cozy with [Donald] Trump. It would make sense."
