John Cena just ran wild on the FX casting offices for NBC’s “Maya & Marty.”

For the skit, the WWE Superstar tried out for the title role in the ficticious (for now) “Hulk Hogan v. Gawker,” a follow-up to the cable channel’s hit series, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

While Cena actually nailed the role, Martin Short‘s David Schwimmer (weakly) stood in his way.

Since “Maya & Marty” is a sketch comedy series, guess which won the gig? Yep, the same actor who was instantly tossed out the window by the far-more qualified guy.
