Wrestling star John Cena is joining the Fortnite character roster, due to course he could be.
The hugely-popular wrestler turned celeb will join Epic Games’ battle royale within a WWE promotion that also emcompasses the publisher’s Rocket League and Fall Guys.
Today’s announcement comes just days after former WWE boss Vince McMahon announced his retirement from the business, amidst multiple claims of sexual misconduct.
Cena will get to Fortnite’s item shop from 1am UK time on Friday, 29th July, with various accessories including his trademark U Can’t C Me taunt being an emote.
In Fall Guys, stylised versions of WWE stars The Undertaker, Xavier Woods and Asuka join the shop this week, while decals themed around Cena and Roman Reigns will drop in Rocket League.
It’s interesting to see Epic launch this promotion across all three of its big live-service games simultaneously, and book another big star because of its Fortnite toybox.
Warner Bros’ crossover platform fighter Multiversus recently confirmed it had booked NBA star LeBron James – though, naturally, he’s experienced Fortnite for some time already.
