Following in the footsteps of The Rock, The Leader of Cenation has successfully transitioned to a massively successful Hollywood career. From being a part of a franchise like Fast and Furious, to leading his own TV show, Peacemaker, Cena has come into his own as a leading man, and a legit box office draw.
He also made a cameo appearance in Greta Gerwig’s massive blockbuster, Barbie, where he played Kenmaid. Though his screen time was limited, the 16-time WWE Champion’s funky look from the movie became an internet rage.
On Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Time Machine podcast hosted by Mac Davis, Teddy Long gave a shoutout to John Cena for his role in Barbie.
“And let me say this, too. I want to give a big shoutout to John Cena. He had a chance to make an appearance in the Barbie movie, and he’s a guy that hadn’t been in Hollywood for that long, and Hollywood was like, ‘In our business when you get that top, you don’t pay some dues.’ He hadn’t paid any dues in Hollywood. So I’m saying he’s a lucky man to get a break in that movie. So, congratulations to you, playa,” said Long. [2:34 – 3:00]
