Macaulay Culkin says he wishes he’d joined WWE - but not as a wrestler

Macaulay Culkin was only 10-years-old when the first Home Alone movie was released in 1990, and since then, his face has become very familiar in Hollywood

Culkin has also appeared in various TV shows, despite having retired from acting between 1994 and 2003, and he has a pretty impressive resume as an actor.

As it turns out, however, there was another career Culkin wished he would have taken - in wrestling.

You read that right, Culkin recently admitted that he has regrets about not pursuing a job in WWE when he had the chance.

Culkin’s wish to be part of the WWE doesn’t involve him knocking anyone out as a wrestler, instead he was interested in writing for the company.

Culkin, who recently welcomed his first child back in April 2021 with Brenda Song spoke about his regrets on a new episode of the Wrestling with Freddie podcast with Freddie Prinze Jr..

Now that he’s a dad, Culkin said he wished he had taken some time to work in WWE when had had the time, saying he wanted to “just find six months of [his] life at the very least to just kinda go in there and stuff.”

“I will say I kind of regret not [writing for WWE] – now that I’m a dad I barely have time to pee at this point, you know what I mean? I just never got around to it, there was always something."

Although it seems as though Culkin might currently be stretched for time with his new baby daughter, Prinze Jr., who previously worked as a writer on SmackDown, suggested there may be the opportunity for Culkin to dive into the world of wrestling as Prinze Jr. has thought about starting his own wrestling brand.

Prinze Jr. told TVInsider, “I was talking to Ariel Helwani about a two-year plan I had. I might have a partner in crime with one of my guests, Macaulay Culkin, who has a passion for it as well.”
