Last weekend, Amazing Spider-Man star Emma Stone hosted Saturday Night Live, resulting in sketches like this:

And resulting in Donald Trump tweets like this:

Next week, WWE star John Cena hosts the show for the first time. Wrestlers don’t get to host SNL that often, at least not since the Attitude Era, or unless they’re The Rock, so it’s a pretty big deal for Cena to get the gig. From his performance in Trainwreck, it’s clear that Cena can be funny. And as Bleeding Cool reported last week, Cena has recently been cast to star in an upcoming comedy, The Pact.

Is this another sign of pro wrestling’s increasing pop culture relevance? Or is it another sign that Cena is on his way out of a wrestling career in an attempt to follow in the footsteps of The Rock? Maybe it’s both. Tune in on Saturday at 11:30PM Eastern and see for yourself.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
