16-time world champion John Cena is known for sporting a buzz cut as his trademark look, but he was seen with a longer side-parting hair style at the Super Show-Down in Australia.
Fans were quick to react on social media as they made comparison with Johnny Cage, Homer Simpson and Mark Wahlberg. Some of them even commented that it’s a mid-life crisis and Cena could be hinting at retirement.

In reality, Cena is sporting this new look for an upcoming film, Project X, which he has been filming in China with the iconic movie star, Jackie Chan.
Cena’s new look has also drawn a lot of comparisons to JBL and the former champion tweeted that “only real good looking dudes have hair that cool.”

Cena returned to in-ring action at Super Show-Down and teamed up with Bobby Lashley to defeat Kevin Owens and Elias using his new Sixth Move of Doom, The Lightning Fist. It is to be noted that Cena only worked during the end of the match and it was very evident that he was being protected from getting injured.
