The champ may be going Hollywood on us, but at least for his first gig as host of Saturday Night Live this weekend (Dec. 10), he’s bringing the pro wrestling world along with him.
As he did while hosting the ESPYs, John Cena is embracing his past, jorts and all... at least in this first promo video released by NBC’s sketch comedy institution this afternoon. Sliding onto the monologue stage like it’s a wrestling ring, Cena holds up a prop SNL belt and promises to destroy the show’s cast.
Except for Leslie Jones of course, with whom he has some history.
And, as you can(‘t) see from this Instagram post, the show’s writers are aware of the jokes we wrestling fans like to make about the 15 time World champ...
Excited for Saturday night?
