ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" - Season 15

It feels like the golden age of wrestling again — Dwayne Johnson and John Cena have been throwing trash talk each other’s way on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

It began when Johnson, earlier this week, told Cena, “If you ever act up, I will knock your teeth so far down your throat you’ll have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush them.”

“I’m not gonna take that,” Cena responded on Wednesday night. “Listen up, Dwayne Johnson, if that is your real name because everyone around the world knows that your first name is T and your last name is He-Rock. You just pronounce all stupid and that gets me even more p–ed off.”

His trash talk, though, could use some work. Cena clarified he meant “pal” in the non-adversarial sense and advised his “best friend” to “watch Blockers [Cena’s new movie] and then watch it again because if you think shoving a toothbrush up my bum is a threat, you got news coming, pal. There’s been a funnel up there, there’s been a parking cone, there’s more traffic in that region than a Monday on the 405 in both directions.”

But Cena wanted to analyze this even further. If Johnson is threatening to clean his butt with a toothbrush and toothpaste, then he might want to “bring a bodysuit and latex gloves ’cause down there is like a Mississippi cornfield in a downpour,” Cena went on. “It is just all mud and vegetation, pal. So the question I have for you, T He-Rock, is do you really wanna smell what John Cena is putting out?”

That might be the most interesting way to promote a movie — Blockers, out in theaters tomorrow — that we’ve ever seen.

Cena previously said he’d love to star alongside Johnson in one of the upcoming Fast & Furious movies. “That stuff is beyond my control, but I would absolutely love that opportunity,” he told EW. “That, for me, would be a dream. I’m never really like, ‘Oh, I’d like to work with this person,’ but I just think between our chemistry in the live performance setting, there’s something certainly there with The Rock. So that would be my one name on the wish list.”
