On the other hand, and continuing the agreements with Nickelodeon, John Cena will play Baron Draxum, a recurring villain in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, an animated series about the Ninja Turtles that will be released during this year.
Cena said in a statement, "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... Kids just love him, which makes him the ideal partner for these upcoming projects", said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. Nickelodeon doesn't do programming that doesn't have comedy in it, that doesn't have smiles in it.
'It's kind of a special time where there is a little bit of lull and I'm really looking forward to spending some time with Nicole'. So did it come as a surprise to anyone that the 16-time WWE Champion would announce a deal to work with Nickelodeon in 2018? This year, he will star in in the newest entry in Paramount's "Transformers" film franchise, "Bumblebee".
"Kids' Choice is an iconic and brand-defining moment for us every year", she said.
Cena will host the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards for the second year in a row.
The game show is set to premiere later this year. "But having him come back two years in a row is flawless for us".
The WWE Superstar and actor has been cast in Nickelodeon's upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series reboot as Baron Draxum.
You can find the description of the new series below. On top of all that, I'm coming to Nickelodeon with a insane game show called Keep It Spotless, where kids have to keep it spotless for huge prizes! Produced by ITV Entertainment and Cena's Hard Nocks South Productions, and based on a United Kingdom format from Possessed, "Keep it Spotless" features kid contestants vying for cash prizes as they compete to keep clean while navigating obstacles created to make them messy. "It's gonna be super special to kids". 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.
