John Cena: The New Fast & Furious

A new cast member joined the Fast & Furious franchise back in mid 2012, when thier ninth installment came out. He is a five-time wrestling U.S. Champion, four-time world tag team champion, and a 16-time world champion. He is tied with Ric Flair for the most world championship reigns in WWE history, including 13 with the WWE Championship, a record for the title. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, a one-time Money in the Bank winner, and has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, including their flagship event, WrestleMania, five times.

John Cena plays Jakob Toretto, Dominic's younger and competitive brother, in "Fast and Furious 9," which came out in mid 2021. 

Below, his tie matches the orange hand of the Explorer II; his shirt, the white dial. The blue star is the logo of the Make-A-Wish Foundation (Cena currently holds the record for most wishes granted).

Though he's been wearing his Explorer II the longest, he promoted the release of "Fast & Furious 9" with a Rolex Batman on his wrist, which matches perfectly the black and blue "F9" logo.

Outside of entertainment, Cena is known for his involvement in numerous charitable causes, namely with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Granting wishes since 2004, Cena has gone on to grant the most wishes (over 650) to children battling life-threatening diseases.

More recently, he helped battle Covid misinformation—beseeching people to check their sources—by stripping down to his waist on John Oliver's show, a rose-gold Daytona 116505 on his wrist. John Oliver and Cena share the same birth year, month and day. I'll include four pictures; the rest is on video

In October 2020, Cena married girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh, whom he had been dating since early 2019, in a private ceremony in Tampa, Florida. The two met during the production of Cena's 2019 film "Playing with Fire," which was filmed in Vancouver, where Shariatzadeh works. 

The star on his collar is the Make-A-Wish Foundation logo.

I love how Cena doesn't just wear Rolex in formal settings. His Rolex is his everyday watch. 

Cena will play alongside Jordana Brewster who has been with the Fast & Furious franchise since its first installment. Jordana is also a bit of a Rolex fanatic.
