This could be interesting. There have been all kinds of wrestlers going in and out of WWE over the course of the company’s history. With so many wrestlers over the years, there are only going to be a handful of wrestlers who are going to get the highest level of attention. There are some great villains who do not get the attention that they deserve, but now they are going to receive it from a slightly surprising source.
According to Deadline.com, NBCUniversal has ordered a new series from WWE called WWE Evil, which will air on Peacock. John Cena is credited as a show runner and executive producer and will also serve as a narrator. The series will be a look into the psychological breakdown of various famous villains in the company’s history. There is no word on when the series will air. This comes after Cena teased a new project with WWE but nothing was announced.
Cena will have a lot to pick from. Check out some of the best villains in WWE history, including Cena’s time as a villain:

For every good guy, there has to be a bad one and @WWE has created some of the BEST bad guys (and ladies) in the history of entertainment.
Excited to highlight those who made us boo, scream, and sometimes cry!

Opinion: This is something with quite the amount of choices to pock from over the years. At the end of the day, WWE has had some amazing heels and you can have some rather interesting looks into what they have. If nothing else, it could be interesting to see who WWE picks as the greatest villains in their history. You can probably guess some, but there might be a few surprises in there.
On top of that, Cena is a rather interesting choice as the narrator. Cena has a great history and someone who sounds like a star without even having to show up on screen. If nothing else, the irony of one of the best good guys of all time talking about villains has to be at least somewhat intentional. It is certainly cool to see Cena still working with WWE, as I’m not sure I can imagine him ever leaving.
Who do you want to see on the show? Is Cena a good choice for the role? Let us know in the comments below.
