John Cena is returning to his WWE roots for a new Peacock original series as he creates, produces, and narrates WWE Evil for the platform.

The series is described as an entertaining “psychological expose” into the minds of the WWE’s most diabolical antagonists — think Mark William Calaway’s The Undertaker. Along with delving into the minds of these figures, WWE Evil will also explore their history and impact on mainstream culture.

Bobby Moynihan and Ron Funches are set to co-host the competition gameshow.

Cena currently co-hosts TBS’s Wipeout revival with Nailed It!‘s Nicole Byer. Long before he became a beloved acting and hosting figure though, Cena was one of WWE’s biggest stars.

He worked with the organization for two decades, beginning his career with the WWE in 2000 and working sporadically with them since becoming a free agent in 2017. So it’s safe to say Cena knows a thing or two about the subject.
