16-time World Champion John Cena has been pictured with a beard, a look not often seen by Cena throughout his two decades in the spotlight.
For as long as fans have been acquainted with John Cena, he’s rarely been seen with a beard. Typically, Cena will be clean-shaven, usually only growing the hair out atop his head.
Taking to Twitter, the acclaimed WWE Superstar showed off his new look in a series of photos shown as the Lounge reopened at Total Wine & More, a North American wine superstore. Although his beard is still growing, it remains an odd look for the typically unbearded Superstar.
#TheLounge reopened yesterday at @TotalWine. Conversations were had, laughs were shared, and it was good #OldFashioned fun for all! Cannot wait to welcome more to our @ThomasAshbourne experience soon! 🥃 pic.twitter.com/lSLAqOTwNQ

John Cena returned to WWE programming earlier this year, appearing on Monday Night Raw’s 27 June broadcast as he celebrated his twentieth anniversary with the company. It was initially believed that he’d be challenging Theory for the United States Championship at SummerSlam, though this ultimately never occurred.
The Cenation leader hasn’t wrestled since last September, teaming with Rey and Dominik Mysterio in defeating The Bloodline’s Roman Reigns and The Usos in a post-SmackDown dark match. His last televised match, however, came a few weeks prior at that year’s SummerSlam; he failed to dethrone Reigns of the Universal Championship.
