Hollywood star Vin Diesel has dropped a huge hint on Instagram which points to WWE's John Cena possibly joining the iconic Fast & Furious franchise.
The popular movie series has already picked up a former WWE personality in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, while Roman Reigns is also set to appear in Hobbs & Shaw later this year. And it certainly appears that Cena is being considered for a spot on the team.
Diesel has posted a short video clip on his Instagram account in which he claims that Pablo - the name he uses for the deceased Paul Walker - sent him "another soldier for the fight for truth".
"Guys, as you know I’m always thinking fast and thinking about the responsibility of making something iconic," Diesel says. "I know this sounds crazy, but every blue moon I feel like Pablo up there sends me someone, another soldier for the fight for truth, and today someone came by the Toretto gym that speaks to what Pablo would’ve brought me.”
The video ends with Diesel panning the camera towards none other than a sharply-dressed John Cena, who performs a more cheerful version of his "you can't see me" without saying a single word but winking at the camera.
Only last week, it was reported that Cena is in talks over a role in Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad sequel but there have been no updates as yet. The star, who wrestles part-time, has featured in several films since making a splash as The Marine back in 2006. Even before that, he played a part in a lesser-known film called Ready to Rumble.
Cena was the star of 2018 comedy Blockers, in which he played an overprotective father, also playing Agent Burns in Transformers spinoff Bumblebee which released last year as well.
What This Means
Cena brought the Dr. of Thuganomics gig back to WWE with a rousing WrestleMania appearance earlier this month and it is hoped that he will continue to appear in character moving forward.
However, it also appears that the wrestler and actor is getting busier with his Hollywood career by the day, which could further limit his already seldom in-ring appearances.
