My childhood is ruined, but your’s might have just gotten a lot cooler.
WWE.com shared a photo today of John Cena auditioning to play Steve for the new Blues Clues reboot and while nothing is set in stone as of yet, the publicity of the photo that was taken might be what convinces Nick to cast him as the beloved character. In fact, John Cena is already playing a role in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which means that making him the new host wouldn’t be that much of a stretch.
John Cena has even hosted or made an appearance in several editions of The Kids Choice awards, which is a pretty good sign of the high regard the kids channel holds him in. With that being said and John Cena’s popularity with children due to his babyface role in WWE, Nickelodeon is a great position to gain new fans and allow for WWE to do the exact same thing.
Whether this is the direction Nickelodeon goes in or not remains to be seen, but its hard not to admit that it would be cool to see my childhood hero host the show i used to religiously watch when i was a kid. In the end, Blues Clues taught me how to count, spell and challenge myself when i was a little kid and John Cena is popular enough to bring in a whole new crowd that they can do that again with.
