TAMPA BAY – I love wrestling and the ultimate thrill ride, Wrestlemania 33, will be in Orlando this Sunday. Earlier in the day, the Rays have their home opener against the New York Yankees a team that one man in particular, can’t stand.
John Cena may be from Massachusetts and a fan of the Red Sox, but he currently lives in Land O’ Lakes, Florida which is less than an hour away from Tampa. He has even been spotted in Rays gear a few times.
Cena will be a busy man on Sunday, when he is in the “show of shows” as he and his girlfriend Nikki Bella face off against The Miz and his wife wife, Maryse, in a mixed tag match. But with the kick-off show not starting until 5 p.m. and Opening day for the Rays starting at 1:10 p.m., something tells me Cena could do both.
And if you’re not sold on Cena yet, he is not just a wrestler. The man is also a movie star. Just as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dave Bautista did, Cena has begun the jump from WWE to Hollywood. Cena has appeared in the movies Trainwreck and Sisters, and it was just announced that he will voice and star in the new animated movie, Ferdinand later this year.
The man is one of the most popular celebrities in the world and would make a great choice to throw out the first pitch. He might even “strike” fear into the Yankees roster.
