  • JOHN CENA Joins RISE OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

Many wrestling fans have been aching for John Cena to turn heel for years.

The WWE Superstar and actor has been cast in Nickelodeon's upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series reboot as Baron Draxum. That isn't the only part of Cena's partnership with Nickelodeon, however, as he is also producing a new series Keep It Spotless, a competition series that tasks kids with taking on challenges while trying to stay clean as possible.

On the "Ninja Turtles" show, Cena will be playing Baron Draxum who is an original villain exclusive to the show. "Kids just love him, which makes him the flawless partner for these upcoming projects", said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group.




The 2018 Kids' Choice Awards will also be held at The Forum again in Inglewood, Calif., however, a date still has to be announced.

No word on whether Cena will be shown in front of the camera on his gameshow. Cena tested incredibly well with audiences for the "Daddy's Home" and "Daddy's Home 2" movies and with a sizable increase in male viewership for the Kids' Choice Awards, among boys 6-11 years of age, bringing Cena back this year was a no-brainer.

In addition to joining Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cena is expanding his partnership with Nickelodeon. "This is especially fun as I get to be a bad guy, which is not normal for me, so I was really drawn to being a villain, especially with the iconic "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" brand and Nickelodeon". Cena's reoccurring character will appear in the premiere episode and throughout the series, which follows the band of brothers as they encounter new mutants and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. Cena's Hard Nocks South Productions will executive produce the show along with ITV Entertainment.
