John Cena is heading to the American home of the WWE Network as he is creating, producing, and narrating a new WWE show for NBC Universal’s streaming service, Peacock.
Cena will front the show called WWE Evil to Peacock as they expand their programming. A press release promoting the new series says:
“WWE Programming on Peacock is expanding with a new original series, WWE Evil. The show is an entertaining ‘psychological expose’ into the minds of the most diabolical antagonists in WWE history, and their impact on mainstream culture.”
Cena is no stranger to television screens after winding down his WWE career. He has hosted two seasons of American Grit as well as the 2019 revival of Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Cena also currently fronts the TBS reboot Wipeout with co-hosts Nicole Byers and Camille Kostek.
There is no word of a potential air date for the new series but fans of the sixteen-time world champion will be keen to see Cena as part of the wrestling world once again.
Ironically, Cena’s last match for WWE came against a perfect candidate for his WWE Evil series, as he faced The Fiend Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House match. The cinematic spectacle bordered on the surreal as it examined Cena’s career and offered an alternative history had events unfolded differently for Cena. In the end, The Fiend dropped Cena with Sister Abigail and locked in the mandible claw while ‘Firefly Funhouse’ Bray Wyatt made a symbolic three count.
This continues a busy year for John Cena who in addition to his television commitments will star in two of the most hotly anticipated films of the year. He will play the role of Dom Toretto’s brother Jakob in the upcoming F9 film. Cena also stars as Peacemaker in the upcoming Marvel movie, The Suicide Squad.
