Cena also wrote back hilariously. According to him, there is nothing wrong with his fashion choices. Retweeting Gunn’s tweet, Cena wrote,Why is that weird? Just breaking in the uniform. Peacemaker. PS, it’s quite difficult to shower in…but I manage.”

The Peacemaker is a vigilante who believes in peace at the cost of anything. He and his team go on crazy missions in the movie. Notably, there will be a spin-off TV series on him where Cena will reprise the role.

Apart from TV, Cena is the current host for the popular TV Show Wipe Out. As of now, there are no plans of Cena coming back to the ring anytime soon.

That’s not true.”

There’s so many great storylines, so many great matches. It’s called WrestleMania, not CenaMania, you know? I’ve been a part [of it], and that part is over.”
