“I thought if I could come back as a greater asset, it would pay off in so many ways across the board – that was a long term goal I had.

“I called Vince McMahon in 2011 and we mapped out a plan to come back for a series of matches.

“I was so excited, this was my opportunity to give back to something that was so good to me.”

The Jumanji actor recalled getting a call from WWE boss Vince McMahon the day after his 2013 Wrestlemania match against John Cena.

He said “[Vince said] ‘Congratulations, you have just set an all time record in the history of professional wrestling, you shattered box office records, attendance records, congratulations.’

“We hung up and I had a moment, it was so gratifying for me.

“I knew this was the way I could give back to this business and I also knew the effect of that how it brings value to the company, changes the perception of the WWE, then also it increases the pay cheques of everybody in the locker room and that’s the bottom line. It meant so much to me that I could add to their bank accounts.”

He retired from wrestling for good the next year after losing to John Cena. Talking about it he said, “We had a match one year later, I went in as WWE champion facing John Cena and I knew it was going to be my very last match in the WWE, but I knew I was going to close out my career in the right way, the respectful way.
