Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit victory over Gawker Media is one of the biggest stories of 2016, and also apparently one ripe for lampooning.
The new NBC show Maya & Marty, starring Saturday Night Live alums Maya Rudolph and Martin Short, took a crack at parodying the saga at its inception — the infamous Hogan sex tape — with a casting call for the next season of FX’s American Crime Story.
Short is fantastic as David Schwimmer, and Eva Longoria has a nice cameo as Rosie Perez, but the real star of the sketch is John Cena as Hulk Hogan himself.
Cena had a nice SNL cameo awhile back and has shown up in movies like Trainwrecked and Sisters. Now, with this sketch appearance under his belt, we might be seeing Cena in a bigger comedic role sometime soon. His Hogan impression was pretty spot on, so who knows? Actually hosting SNL could be around the corner.
