As revealed previously, WWE superstar hosted this week’s episode of the Saturday Night Live and it seems to have become a runaway hit with the fans. The ratings saw a spike after Cena’s episode and it proved that Cena could handle comedy after all after his brief role in the movie ‘Train Wreck’ alongside Amy Schumer.
As a part of the show, Cena was seen in three skits and made fun of a lot of people including the president elect of the United States, Donald Trump.
The best part of the episode was where Cena played Donald Trump. As of this writing, the NBC network has not yet posted the video.
Regarding Cena, it appears that he might never work a full time role in the WWE after all. WWE Hall of Famer noted on his official twitter handle that the prospect of Cena working a full time role is probably zero now given that he has been finding success outside the WWE with movies and hosting gigs.

We recently reported that WWE Hall of Famers, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler and Lita were removed from the pre-show panels due to their contract expiring. PWInsider reported that Jerry Lawler openly spoke about the decision recently.
