It so happened that AEW pro-wrestler and WCW Legend Sting appeared on Television with the usual face make-up. However, somehow the face paint made Sting’s facial features extremely similar to that of John Cena. Some fans were quite confused, and expressed the same on social media.

Of course, it was Sting. But, the similarities had everyone wondering could it actually be John Cena? Was it him?

Unfortunately, no. As of now, John Cena is with WWE. He may have taken a break from WWE following SummerSlam 2021, but that does not mean he signed up with AEW!

John Cena and Sting teamed up only once

When the WCW Legend returned to WWE in 2015, he put a target on Seth Rollins. However, WWE put a twist on things, and Sting ended up in a match against The Big Show.

The match did not produce a real winner since The Drip God interfered. Of course, this meant something bigger!

Sting and John Cena teamed up to take on The Big Show and Seth Rollins. As expected, Sting and Cena emerged victorious, and that was the end of Sting and Cena’s run as a tag team.
