The clip is in promotion of Cena's return gig as host of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards
John Cena has an announcement for his family: He’s hosting the Kids’ Choice Awards for a second year in a row.
But the wrestler-turned-actor isn’t just playing himself in the new promo for Nickelodeon, aptly titled “Keeping up with the Cenas.” He’s also playing a moodily emo teenage Cena, a selfie-snapping young female Cena, Grandma Cena, and the Cena family dog, among many others. And the family’s reaction to their star’s news isn’t exactly over the moon. (Hint: There’s slime involved. Watch above.)
Cena telling his family comes on the heels of his first announcing the hosting news to EW. “The audience and the environment is very similar to a WWE audience, and the show is built for the kids,” he told EW of why he chose to host a second time. “Not only are the kids in the live audience, but it’s the audience in the home as well. I think it’s the only one of its kind in that format: Nickelodeon goes above and beyond to not only produce a great show that translates well to television, but kids have so much fun.”
His family, unfortunately, doesn’t seem to be so excited. Watch the official promo for the 2018 Kids Choice Awards, which air March 24, above. You’ll even get to hear Baby Cena’s first words.
