Joe Rogan’s interviews are synonymous with lasting over three hours until every nook and cranny has been revealed or until he asks his guests if they ever ate moose meat while high on psilocybin mushrooms. However, a recent Joe Rogan Experience The interview ended abruptly, prompting fans to scratch their heads and ask why.
Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, whose incredible story was the inspiration for Lone survivor, appeared in Joe Rogan’s experience. Luttrell was (SPOILER ALERT) the sole survivor of Operations Red Wings in Afghanistan, a mission in 2005 in which the SEAL 10 team was assigned to neutralize a high-ranking Taliban leader. However, the Navy SEALs were involved in a bloody firefight with Taliban fighters on a mountainside that lasted for hours. Miraculously, Luttrell survived the shooting that left his fellow SEALs dead, and was rescued when he was near the end of his rope.
In the interview, Luttrell struggles to hold back tears as he relives the personal hell he experienced and the goodness of an Afghan tribe that allowed him to live for six days until his rescue by the US military.
Despite sustaining serious injuries in the battle in Afghanistan, Luttrell volunteered for another military tour before retiring medically.

Luttrell wrote the book Lone survivor detailing his incredible story, which was made into a Hollywood movie with actor Mark Wahlberg. During his recent interview with Joe Rogan, Luttrell revealed that he hadn’t actually seen the entire movie based on his near-death experience in the Middle East.
Rogan asked the Navy SEAL: “What is it like to have a movie about one of the worst experiences of your life?”
“It’s an honor to be a part of that,” Luttrell responded. “Man, it’s about getting my ass spanked. As a fighter and a warrior, those are generally the stories you don’t want published. ”
“I have not seen it,” said the war hero of Lone survivor, the movie about the most critical moment of his life, then joked: “I’ve never seen it from start to finish, I know the director’s cut.”

“I’m glad you said, ‘Let’s start with whiskey,'” Rogan told Luttrell. “As soon as you said that, I said, ‘This is going to be great.’
“I only drink whiskey with my friends, and the only reason we say that is because of the things that come out when you drink whiskey,” Luttrell said. “So I was looking forward to this, we’ve been friends for a while, I thought, ‘We should have a good time with this.’
Luttrell apparently enjoyed some whiskey during the interview.
Later in the interview, Luttrell needed to use the bathroom, which happens to most of the guests during Rogan’s marathon interviews. However, Luttrell never returned. JRE Fans were curious why the interview ended so abruptly.
Rogan explained what happened with the end of Luttrell’s interview.
“A true honor and a great moment to share a podcast with a great man and a true hero,” Rogan wrote in an Instagram post. “We could all use someone like @marcusluttrell in our lives.”
“You know you’re a bad person when @markwahlberg plays you in a movie,” added the UFC commentator. “If you don’t know who Marcus is, he’s the real-life SEAL that was the subject of the amazing movie. Lone survivor. “
“We talked a lot and drank a lot of whiskey,” Rogan explained. “For people wondering why the podcast was cut off abruptly after Marcus went to do a leak, we decided that maybe he had consumed too much to keep talking, and in hindsight I think it was the right decision. LOL! We will do it again, I’m sure. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do too. “
