It’s no secret that WWE superstar John Cena has been trying to get into the acting game, ever since his icon/rival Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson proved that it can be done (and done well, might I add).
I’ve never cared for Cena as an in-ring performer, but I won’t deny the man’s oddly charming comedic delivery. He literally stole the show from Amy Schumer in Judd Apatow‘s Trainwreck and the Universal comedy Sisters.
Now, he’s getting his own film to crack the jokes in, which is dubbed Blockers, for various reasons.
I’ll admit that the trailer is comical, yet doesn’t seem nearly as funny as the previously mentioned films. Is it just a bad edit or does Cena not have enough charisma to lead a film and should instead just play the back-seat guy?
We’ll find out next April.
