John Cena may be off WWE television to film a movie, but the former 16-time World Champion remains a busy man by announcing that he will be creating another children’s book called “Elbow Grease vs. Motozilla.” The book is a follow up to Cena’s first book called Elbow Grease, which became a #1 New York Times bestseller.
Cena revealed the cover of the book on Twitter and talked about what an honor it was for him to do another children’s book.
All my life I've been privileged to be a part of many great "teams." If I'm in a @WWE ring, on set, or spending time with loved ones, who I am is shaped by the wonderful people beside me. These experiences have helped to create a very special project … #ElbowGreasevsMotozilla! pic.twitter.com/hWRkFBluVp
