Saturday Night Live - Season 42

John Cena might be the buffest Saturday Night Live host to date, and he’s ready to make everyone on stage tap out.

The WWE star is the guest player on this weekend’s sketch comedy show. In the first promo, he stormed the Studio 8H stage as if it was the wrestling ring, rife with a bejeweled SNL title belt and busting through a banner. His signature song “The Time Is Now” rang through the speakers.

“I’m going to destroy the Saturday Night Live cast,” he bellowed before turning somber. “Except for Leslie [Jones]. I don’t want any trouble. I think you’re great. That wasn’t meant for you. Okay? All right? Good.”

The second-to-last SNL of 2016 will be Cena’s first time hosting. He’ll be paired with country singer Maren Morris, who also makes her debut.

See the promo above. Cena hosts SNL this Saturday, starting at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
