Photo: John Cena With Tattoos For “The Nest” Movie Role

John Cena The Nest

WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena is currently filming his scenes in the new Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy, “The Nest,” where he will be playing his first villain role in a movie. reports:

“Wrestling superstar John Cena is dropkicking his way into The Nest, Universal’s Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy about two sisters who throw one last party in their parents’ soon-to-be-sold house. Character details are under wraps but I hear the Cenation Leader is playing what could mark his first villain role after spending over a dozen years as the WWE’s All-American hero.”

The movie will document two sisters (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) who attempt to throw one last party in their childhood home before their parents sell it.

Cena missed the July 21 edition of WWE RAW to film scenes for the movie and will miss at least one more episode of RAW heading into his title defense against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam on August 17th.

    Lmao.. look at his face.. he still looks like a nice guy. You can’t turn this guy heel no matter what.

    • 9 year old boy

      And that is why I love him <3

      • pwnez

        Yeah, no.

        • 9 year old boy

    • Mr 561

      Little kid is like, “C’mon John, who are you trying to fool with that tough guy look?”

    • Elvin Zammit

      He’s posing with a kid what the hell do you want ? jesus.

  • Herald

    He looks like kid rock but when you scroll down you realize its Cena

  • The Drewster

    This is as close as we get to seeing John Cena a Heel lol

  • Undertaker316

    he should keep those tattoos it would make him look like less of a joke and they could turn him into a serious baby face instead of making crappy jokes all the time

  • pwnez

    Lmao. This picture actually intrigues me about the part he will be playing in The Nest.

  • WCWJobber

    Can’t lie he looks f’ing badass

  • raVen

    Who gets a full neck and some face tattoos without even having sleeves?? And the wrist flames haha is this caw from 99?

    • Abra Kadabra

      A better question… WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?!!??!

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    so hardcore. Here, take my lunch money Mister Cena.

  • Elvin Zammit

    LMAOO oh god so many haters. You’ll get far in life (Y) Good on you John !!

  • Frank

    Are that real tattoos?

    • LACenaFan

      Yeah. WWE’s gonna let Cena, THEIR BEST GUY WITH CHILDREN, show all the little kids it’s right to have tattoos.

      • JamieEvsxx

        Are you implying it’s wrong to have tattoos then?…honestly with the amount of Superstars who have tattoos (and even those who are famous outside of WWE)…I don’t think anyone would bat an eyelid if Cena got tattoos (and if they did not only would it be completely stupid, they can’t really do anything about it because it’s permanent)…????

        • LACenaFan

          I’m pretty sure 90% of parents don’t want their children to have tattoos, unless it’s a washable tattoo. c;

          • JamieEvsxx

            ok it’s fair enough not wanting them to have tattoos (not that they could anyway)…but I just don’t see people making a huge deal over Cena getting a tattoo because there are a lot of Superstars with a lot of tattoos such as Orton, Reigns, Punk, Taker, Lesnar, etc. and I don’t think I’ve heard a single person turn around and say “Well they’re not good role models because they have tattoos”…like it’s the actions people care about not the appearance of the wrestlers…=/

    • Mrs. Ambrose #MNW


    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Is that a real question?

    • mac888

      Yes. He covers them up when he wrestles. It takes 9 hours every morning in a makeup chair. Now that’s dedication.

  • LACenaFan

    That’s kind of badass.

  • Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

    Cena looking good.

  • tnicols

    Cena started as a heel; dr. of thugonomics !!!!!!

    • Joe Sofroniou

      Well true, but he started as a heel in his early debut. When he feuded with Billy Kidman.

  • ihods

    After this movie flops into oblivion maybe Cena will realize that he isn’t the Rock and won’t ever have a career outside of the WWE,

    • Joe Sofroniou

      Tbh, even if most of his films are terrible, I prefer him staying in the film business.

  • Cenaaa

    Finally a heel turn ! xD

  • Mysterious

    Damn can you imagine him turning up at Summerslam dressed like that. I don’t know if Lesnar would be scared or just laugh lol

  • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

    Such a good looking guy! I would just die, so I could be reincarnated into John Cena. I don’t mind looking like John Cena even if he had Vitiligo or some other kind of skin disease.

  • The One, The Only, The Ellis!

    Serious question, does Cena only posses with kids and girls? I would like to pose with him, but I don’t want to make him feel uncomfortable.

  • Louis Salera

    Cena didn’t put the hero over I bet.

  • Louis Salera

    Gdaddy1971 must be upset..Lmao

    • gdaddy1971

      Sad. Pitifully sad. You had me on your mind once again without me posting a word. You are really starting to develop stalker tendencies. You need to get some help for that right away.

  • JamieEvsxx

    Mehh, not a fan tbh…like the tattoos look good, but I think they could’ve added more to him…neck tattoos on their own just look odd to me, maybe some sleeves might looks better?…????…but yeah, should be interesting to see Cena play the bad guy I mean…like others had said it’s probably the closest we’ll get to seeing a heel turn…????

  • Black Berry

    Cena should come back to wwe after filming just like that new look

  • Fantasma Del Guapo

    I threw up inside my mouth a little reading that quote from Deadline.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Those are some atrocious tatts.

  • mac888

    This movie has a chance at breaking even I suppose. Cena is wasting his time doing movies as he doesn’t have the appeal of The Rock

  • brad

    I know it’s just for the movie but dam I’m glad that Cena doesn’t actually have tats because they don’t suit him at all.

  • satishwarne708

    I’d put a joke but the pic did it on it’s own

  • heterosexual

    gawd tats are ugly

  • KenKen KillT iT

    Hope he can pull it off.

  • Dixie Carter

    He would do better in a movie called “Backdoor to Cena: The 5 holes?” than his Z list rent a movie garbage that stone cold stopped doing cause it’s direct to DVD failure

  • J’vo

    Damn Marky Mark return man this time with lot muscle
