Hugh Jackman calls out John Cena on ESPN Sportscenter

One of the best guest hosts WWE has ever had and star of this weekend's big movie release, X-Men: Days of Future Past, was on SportsCenter with WWE alum Jonathon Coachman and ended up cutting a promo on John Cena.

It's unclear why, except that Wolverine was enjoying what he called a "fantasy day" while promoting his new film at the sports empire's headquarters and was crossing things off his bucket list. But as anyone who has seen the multi-talented Jackman work on Raw would probably imagine, it's a solid (if silly) promo from the real-life wrestling fan.

We'll see if Hugh will be back in WWE anytime soon for the start of his own "Once in a Lifetime" program with the leader of the Cenation.

In the meantime, it strikes me that he kind of looks like a certain straight-edged someone we haven't seen for a few months. Surely, an Academy Award-nominated thespian like Jackman could slap on some temporary tattoos and drop a few pipebombs, right?
