You probably need more reasons to love Chris Pratt, right?

Pratt accepted the award for Best Action Performance in Jurassic World and used the opportunity to thank action movie legends of the past, from Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger to Sigourney Weaver and Cynthia Rothrock. Street cred! That devolved into a list of WWE legends, with dropped names including Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura, ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka, Lou Albano, Batista, The Rock, Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts. You lose that Cynthia Rothrock street cred when you reference Brutus Beefcake, by the way.

I guess when you’ve spent as much time in outer space with Dave Bautista as Pratt has, you develop an appreciation for this sort of thing. How great is it that Chris Pratt got the best pro wrestling moment on an awards show hosted by The Rock?
