John Cena To Narrate Peacock Project Called WWE Evil
The Suicide Squad star and former WWE Champion will narrate new series on Peacock that takes a look at wrestling villains.
The former 16-time WWE Champion and mega movie star John Cena has his next project for Peacock lined up. WWE announced that Cena will narrate and produce WWE Evil, which is billed as "an entertaining psychological exposé into the minds of the most diabolical antagonists in WWE history, and their impact on mainstream culture."
WWE Evil is the latest project to join the group of WWE programming on Peacock after parent company NBC Universal purchased the rights to WWE content in March. It will air along with original series like Undertaker: The Last Ride and Steve Austin's show, The Broken Skull Sessions.

Peacock is also where you can watch every WWE pay-per-view and Raw, Smackdown, and NXT, but only up to a certain year. At press time, Raw and Smackdown only go back to 2008.
Cena has been announced to return to Monday Night Raw next week and will probably plug the show at some point, but it's his first WWE appearance in over a year. He was last seen at Wrestlemania 36 in a cinematic match between The Fiend in a Firefly Funhouse Match, in which he lost.
Cena has been experimenting with movies since 2006 with WWE Studios' The Marine, and now is considered one of the world's biggest action stars. He'll soon be featured in Fast and Furious 9, The Suicide Squad, which will have a spin-off solo show for HBO Max as well. He has done plenty of voice work in the past few years as well including the Wonderful Pistachio elephant and currently the voice of Honda for their Rugged campaign.
