Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton may have to get ready to rumble — former Minnesota governor and wrestling great Jesse Ventura tells Newsmax TV he may challenge both if they are nominated for president.

"I could run against them [on the platform] that we fought a war with Britain so we don't have kings and queens," Ventura said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"I mean if Bush runs, that'd be the third Bush in how many years of my lifetime? Half of it? And if Clinton runs, it'll be their second? I thought we fought the British so we didn't have kings and queens."

Ventura — famously known as Jesse "The Body" Ventura in his years as a pro wrestler from 1975 to 1986 — said he would run as a Libertarian Party candidate because Republicans and Democrats are a "two-party dictatorship."

"We need to get rid of [it]. What it'll lead to, more people in debates, more options, and more choices. I want more options," said Ventura, who successfully ran for governor of Minnesota with the Reform Party in 1998.

"I want to destroy them and when I say destroy them, I want to destroy the current stranglehold these two parties have on our elected system, of turning it into a system based upon bribery.

"That's what you have today, bribery. [In the] private sector you go to jail for that."

Vetntura, 64, said he hasn't yet decided whether he'll throw his hat in the ring, but added that his supporters are "laying the groundwork for me."

If he is tapped by the Libertarian Party, he would "of course" run, he said, adding, "I'd love to because I'll win."

Aside from wrestling and politics, Ventura has also had a successful movie career with films including, "The Running Man," "Predator" and "Batman & Robin."

In a Real Clear Politics compilation of presidential polls, Bush, the former governor of Florida, son of President George H.W. Bush and brother of President George W. Bush, is running behind Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina among Republicans.

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, remains the Democratic frontrunner, with Sen. Bernie Sanders in second place.
