Reason For John Cena's WWE Absence Revealed
John Cena will host new reality competition American Grit, it has been announced.
The WWE megastar is currently taking some time away from the ring for the project, which will see 16 of the country’s toughest men and women divided into four teams as they work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges.
And apparently the former US champ has recruited an elite group of mentors - known as 'The Cadre' from the nation’s most exclusive military units that will push competitors beyond their limits.
He said: “The US Military is the epitome of resolve and dedication, which is why I am so excited to be a part of American Grit.
“This show will not only be a challenging and fierce competition, but it will give viewers a glimpse into the perseverance and training of the men and women of the Armed Forces.”
