What has happened to John Cena?
The 16-time World Champion, New York Times best-selling author, and record-setting Make-A-Wish granter is looking unrecognizable these days after a picture of John Cena from the set of Vacation Friends 2 has left fans dumbstruck.
The photo from the set of Vacation Friends 2 was recently shared on Twitter, and it quickly went viral.
Some even thought Cena was now looking like Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler.
Cena has not stepped into the ring for a match since his loss to Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39. Cena stopped being a regular act on WWE television as he is basically a full-time actor and has played various roles over the past decade or so.
Here’s what Cena said to The US Sun about the beginning of his movie career:
“Originally my film career was a direction from upper management in WWE — like, ‘Hey, go do movies.’ Originally what I wanted my film career to be was an extension of the WWE business model. I understood,” he said. “WWE Studios opened in 2003/2004, they began to film movies, the model of the business was, ‘If we can make our stars bigger stars, they will come to see WWE’. Well, that’s what I wanted, but I didn’t want to go do movies.” [H/T The US Sun]
In his wrestling career, Cena is tied with Ric Flair’s record of the highest number of world title reigns. Cena is widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.
As an actor, he has been in movies such as The Marine, 12 Rounds, The Reunion, Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery, The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age SmackDown!, Daddy’s Home, Bumblebee, The Suicide Squad, Fast X, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, and many others.
