John Cena returned to NBC’s “Today” show as a co-host on Tuesday as well as to promote his new Elbow Grease book for kids. During the show, he talked about a wide range of topics including starring in the Project X movie with Jackie Chan in China, WWE Super Show-Down in Australia, and more.

As seen at Saturday’s (October 6, 2018) WWE Super Show-Down pay-per-view event at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Melbourne, Australia on the WWE Network, Cena showed off his new look for the first time on WWE programming, which sees him with longer hair. This led to a lot of talk about it online from fans and wrestlers.

Cena addressed it by stating that the reason he made this change was due to the request of the director of the movie with Chan and thought that was a fine idea. He did point out that the jokes and the criticism started when he showed up to Super Show-Down this past weekend with the new cut.

His relationship as well as split from Nikki Bella has been heavily featured in the mainstream news to the point that he talked about it several months ago on “Today.” When asked about his current status, he noted that at the time that he made those comments months ago, he was vulnerable and genuine but doesn’t regret talking about it. However, he does believe now that his personal life should be personal. Cena did note that he did recently see her and everything was alright.
