“John Cena did the stunt right, but we prepped for the stunt wrong,” he explained, while a clip was shown of the 43-year-old former WWE star throwing Andre into a bookcase.

“That metal came over and clocked me in the head, and I got concussed,” he explained. “I got concussed, and I went to the hospital … immediately.”

Andre joked: “I had like a Fred Flintstone, like Bugs Bunny (bump) on the side of my head. They did a CAT scan, and I haven’t been able to speak English since.”

Season five of The Eric Andre Show will premiere on Adult Swim on Sunday (October 25, 2020).
