John Cena is one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, as he was the face of WWE for well over a decade. He is now a part-timer, having a busy schedule in Hollywood. That said, he admits he was fortunate to get to act in ‘Barbie,’ even if it was just a cameo role.

The Leader of Cenation never fails to give it his best no matter what role he is given and his Hollywood accomplishments in the past few years speak for themselves. This includes his roles in films such as ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Peacemaker’ and even the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies.

John Cena starred in Greta Gerwig’s film ‘Barbie,’ where he portrayed the role of mermaid. It was a cameo role and it was just for a few seconds, but fans definitely loved seeing the Leader of Cenation in such a role.

While speaking to Terri Seymour of Extra about his cameo in the movie ‘Barbie’, John Cena admitted that he was fortunate to bag the cameo role in the film. Cena made it clear that he loved the whole experience as well.


That one man, that’s a four leaf clover for me. I was really lucky. I’m very grateful for all the opportunities that come our way. But I was especially lucky for that.

Didn’t have to do much. Just put on a fish tail and a blonde wig and let all the talented folks do the rest. It’s great to see, not only the film be so successful amongst the consumers out there, but certainly with the critics as well.

‘Barbie’ was a phenomenal hit, grossing $1.4 billion this year itself. Regardless, John Cena is back in Hollywood after finishing up his latest WWE run at Crown Jewel, so we’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
