Jesse Ventura was caught up by TMZ Sports and was asked about a return to wrestling as well maybe making another political run, and “The Body” didn’t rule either out as a possibility.
According to Ventura, The Green Party has showed interest in the former governor of Minnesota representing them in 2020. Ventura had some bold statements to make in the video which is below along with the following quotes (transcription credit should go to @DominicDeAngelo at WrestleZone):
Jesse Ventura on if another political run is in the works:
“Yeah, yeah, in fact I’m being pressured right now, I’m getting a lot from the Green Party.”
“I’m big into cannabis legalization. I’m also into alternative energy big. We need to get away from fossil fuels, we gotta go to the sun it’s time.”
“The Greens have showed some interest. I haven’t made a decision yet cause it’s a long time off, but if I do do it, rest assured it is – you got that running? If I do do it, Trump will not have a chance because for one, Trump knows wrestling, he participated in two WrestleManias he knows he can never out-talk a wrestler, and he knows I am the greatest talker wrestling ever had so if I go for it, he’s history and he knows it.”
In 1998 Ventura become the 38th governor for the state of Minnesota and held the office until 2003.
