John Cena continues to break out into the mainstream with his biggest mainstream gig to date. Cena will be hosting the 2016 ESPYS. The show will be broadcast live on Wednesday, July 13 at 8pm eastern on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Cena has been making huge strides outside of WWE as host of “American Grit” on FOX, co-hosting the TODAY show, his role in the “Trainwreck” movie with Amy Schumer and tons of other media appearances. “It is truly an honor to be named host of the 2016 ESPYS,” Cena told WWE.com. “Not only will the biggest names in sports and entertainment come together to recognize some of the most spectacular athletic performances of the year, but we’ll also raise funds for The V Foundation to further much-needed cancer research.”
Congratulations are in order for Cena.
