There are a countless amount of reasons why we all love John Cena. He’s a WWE icon, he has one of the most vibrant, outgoing, charming and fun-loving personalities, and he’s someone who inspires everyone to work hard and follow after their dreams. That’s why, we’re super excited to hear that this 2018, Nickelodeon and John Cena have teamed up to work on three, incredibly exciting projects that we all are so thrilled over.
Nickelodeon just recently announced that the legendary John Cena will be returning for his second year as the host of the renowned, prestigious and slime-tastic award show, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. John Cena did a sensational job hosting the brilliant award show last year and we know that he will continue to bring extra excitement, slime and tons of smiles on everyone’s face again this year. The 2018 Nickelodeon KCAs will take place on March 24th at the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California and we know that this year’s award show will be one of the best ones yet!
In addition, John Cena will also be voicing the role of a villainous character in the brand new, Nickelodeon animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. According to the press release, “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ newest villain, Baron Draxum, will be voiced by Cena. Baron Draxum is an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants. Cena’s reoccurring character will appear in the premiere episode and throughout the series, which follows the band of brothers as they encounter new mutants and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will bow later this year.”
To add onto the amazing news, John Cena will also be executive producing a brand new, competition show on Nickelodeon titled, Keep It Spotless. Fans will absolutely love this series as it’s filled with tons of action-packed and super fun moments.
“Keep It Spotless, Nickelodeon’s new competition series, is executive produced by Cena and features kids competing in a variety of physical and paint-filled challenges designed with one goal in mind–to stay as clean as possible. After each game, a 360 degree scanner will measure each teams’ mess to determine just how spotless they really are. The winning team will face The Gauntlet, a multiple-challenge obstacle course, where they can turn their cleanliness into cold hard cash. Keep It Spotless is produced by ITV Entertainment and Hard Nocks South Productions, based on a UK format from Possessed, and scheduled to premiere later this year.” (source: press release)
John Cena shared his excitement over all of his magnificent projects with Nickelodeon and said, “I’m thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon on three big projects that run the range of what kids love–slime-filled live events, awesomely cool animation and competition shows where kids take their shot at being the best. It’s an honor to come back a second time to host the biggest, slimiest party of the year, the Kids’ Choice Awards. Not only do I get to be a cartoon character in the new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, but I get to be a villain, too. And to top it all off, I’m stepping behind the camera to executive produce Nick’s new competition series Keep It Spotless, which gives a whole new meaning to staying clean.”
“John Cena is one of the biggest stars in the world. Kids just love him, which makes him the perfect partner for these upcoming projects,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. “His blend of humor and originality brings a fresh voice to Nickelodeon both in front of the camera and behind.” (source: press release)
