John Cena WWE 2K

You will be able to see John Cena on the golf course in the PGA Tour 2K23 video game.

The WWE 2K23 video game was released officially earlier this month with the former 16-time WWE World Champion John Cena on the cover with fans having a chance to cover moments from Cena’s legendary career.

While John Cena is no longer a full-time WWE superstar, he is taking part in WrestleMania 39 night one this Saturday, April 1st when he challenges Austin Theory for the US Title. It’s a title that Theory has held five times in his career.

Wrestling fans may be used to using Cena in WWE video games over the last 20 years, but now they have a chance to use Cena on the golf course because he’s joining basketball legends like Michael Jordan and Steph Curry as playable characters in the PGA Tour 2K23 video game.

Here’s the press release from 2K Games with information about John Cena in the game along with a photo of the legendary wrestler in golfing gear.
