John Cena will return to SmackDown on Friday, February 28, as Team Blue continues down The Road to WrestleMania.
It was on SmackDown where The Cenation Leader made his dynamic debut nearly 18 years ago when he channelled “Ruthless Aggression” to challenge WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle in his debut match. Since that fateful night, Cena went on to become WWE’s standard-bearer, earning 16 World Championships and inspiring countless WWE fans to “Never Give Up.”
An icon in the ring and the star of such blockbuster films as “Bumblebee,” “Blockers” and the upcoming “F9: The Fast Saga,” Cena will soon bring his signature “Hustle, Loyalty and Respect” back to SmackDown, as first reported by WWE Backstage on FS1. Whatever this unparalleled Superstar has planned, you won’t want to miss it.
Last month, the 16-time World Champion revealed the first look at his “F9” character on social media.
The “Fast & Furious” films have been notoriously friendly to WWE Superstars over the past decade: Fellow former WWE Champion and Cena rival Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joined the franchise for 2011’s “Fast Five” and appeared in the next three films — 2013’s “Fast & Furious 6,” 2015’s “Furious 7” and 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” — before starring alongside Roman Reigns in last year’s spinoff instalment, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.”
Earlier, Vin Diesel the lead character in the Fast and Furious franchise also dropped his first look in the movie.
Diesel wrote on Instagram, 3 more days until the trailer launch! So excited! Blessed, Grateful and Humbled. #Fast92020 #F9May2020 #Family.
