Former WWE Champion John Cena has his next Hollywood gig booked as he serves as the host the revival of “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”

He spoke with EW.com to promote the television show that premiered on Monday at 7 p.m. on Nickelodeon. During the interview, he explained how WWE helped him prepare for the gig.

“There is no way I can ignore my experience in the WWE for preparing me for something like this, where you not only have to be a vehicle to move the show along but not being afraid to have a personality,” Cena stated.

Cena added that there are so many things that he learned while in the company that helped him with this and every experience he has.

The game show will relaunch with new episodes airing for several days straight until June 19 where it will settle into its regular 7 pm Monday timeslot on June 24.

Cena also serves as one of the executive producers of the show along with Mark Burnett and Barry Poznick. The show sees adult contestants appear on the stage where they answer questions as if they came from an elementary school quiz.

Cena was last seen on WWE programming when he appeared at WrestleMania 35 to do a segment with Elias.
