WWE is advertising John Cena for the upcoming live events under the name of “Juan Cena” and noting that he’s the Mexican cousin of the former WWE Champion that is supposed to be “fired” from WWE. It looks like Cena will be sporting one of those Lucha Libre masks in an angle similar to what Hulk Hogan did as Mr. America in 2003 on Smackdown. Cena is scheduled to wrestle in fatal four ways for the WWE title against Miz, Barrett and Orton throughout the month of December.
“CeNation. Just received western union tellagram via carrier pigieon from mexican cousin Juan. Apparently he just got hired by wwe and would like me to watch his first match tonight in salisbury md. I got nuthin but time on my hands. Ill be there,” wrote Cena on his Twitter on Sunday.
