WWE.com released the news that John Cena will host this year’s ESPYs on Wednesday, July 13th at 8:00PM EST at the Microsoft Theater located in Los Angeles.
The ESPYs will be surrounded by top athletes as well as celebrities to “commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major achievements, reliving unforgettable moments and saluting the leading performers and performances.”
John Cena had this to say about hosting the ESPYs, “It is truly an honor to be named host of the 2016 ESPYS. Not only will the biggest names in sports and entertainment come together to recognize some of the most spectacular athletic performances of the year, but we’ll also raise funds for The V Foundation to further much-needed cancer research.”
I am excited for John that he was requested to host this year’s ESPYs and I know he will do a fine job. However, I will be watching WWE’s Global Cruiserweight Series airing that same night but a hour later. I’m definitely not missing that for anything! I’m sure Cena’s girlfriend, Nikki Bella, will take enough pictures of John at the ESPYs to make us feel like we’re right there with them. Congratulations, John!
