John Cena isn’t on WWE television these days, but he is still part of the WWE family. NBCUniversal and Peacock announced Cena will be creating and producing a documentary series about WWE’s bad guys. Here’s what was announced in a press release today.
Peacock, which is an NBC Universal streaming service, ordered WWE Evil, from creator/executive producer John Cena.
WWE Evil is described as a “psychological exposé” into the minds of the most diabolical antagonists in WWE history and their impact on mainstream culture. Wrestler-actor Cena is writing the project and also will narrate and exec produce.
Cena has a number of projects in the can or in the works, including playing Peacemaker in James Gunn’s upcoming The Suicide Squad and the DC character’s own eponymous spinoff series at HBO Max. He also is set to star with Idris Elba in Heads of State and opposite Meredith Hagner and Lil Rel Howery in Vacation Friends and also co-hosts TBS’ Wipeout revival.
Cena tweeted about it.
For every good guy, there has to be a bad one and @WWE has created some of the BEST bad guys (and ladies) in the history of entertainment.
Excited to highlight those who made us boo, scream, and sometimes cry!

There’s no word on when Cena is going to return to WWE although he did tweet this on Instagram three days ago.
It could be nothing. It could be something. Up to you to decide.
