Amongst all the skins from all the IPs that Epic Games has added to Fortnite, the John Cena one is perhaps the most apt. I'm not sure how to explain it, but the Cena skin somehow encapsulates everything that Fortnite is about and is trying to be – and that's not necessarily a good or bad thing. Well, he's finally made it into Fortnite, and players have greeted the skin with loyalty and respect. However, Cena claims he's not done.
"Overwhelmed with the response from the @FortniteGame community and so grateful to now have “skin” in the game," he tweeted. "Already looking for more ways to be involved! Thank you!"
Cena is clearly glad that he's made his way into Fortnite and humbled by the fan response, but it'll be interesting to see if he actually manages to play a bigger part in the overall game. Fellow wrestler-turned-Fortnite skin Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has managed to do so, as he was involved in a season-long story arc which revealed that The Foundation was actually him. However, Cena is a bit more knowledgeable when it comes to video games, so he may have some ideas of his own.
The John Cena skin was added to Fortnite as a part of the Epic SummerSlam event and comes with two variants. Entrance Style shows Cena in his green t-shirt, and Ring Style has him go topless, flaunting his dog tags and six-packs. The backbling comes in the form of a WWE championship belt, along with a Five Digit Slapper Pickaxe, and of course, the U Can't C Me emote.
It turns out that Fortnite isn't the only game Cena is excited about. During a 2017 shoot for Nintendo, he apparently bugged Nintendo execs about a new 2D Metroid game. Giant Bomb's Dan Rykert tweeted an image of Cena playing on the Switch, with the caption, "During this photo shoot in 2017, Cena repeatedly told the Nintendo reps how much he wanted a new 2D Metroid. When Metroid Dread came out years later, he was sent a copy. Cena’s people sent an email back saying “John loves it.”"
