Some of you might have missed it last night, but John Cena hosted the ESPYs and he absolutely killed it. Cena stepped up to the plate and hit a home run and he’s been receiving rave reviews for his performance as the host of the ESPYs.
Indeed things went well last night, but there was a little bit of tension at the beginning of the show. John Cena addressed the fact that people were probably wondering why ESPN would enlist a sports-entertainer to host a show about sports and that’s when things got really fun.
Cena started talking about how the world of sports and WWE are a lot more similar than some people might think. He noted that throughout his career LeBron James started out as a face, only to turn heel, then face again.
He made quite a few hilarious comparison including one that was right on the nose with Vince McMahon and Roger Goodell. Pretty much everyone got roasted, John Cena style, and it was hilarious.
