WWE Universe will once again witness a film in the market starring John Cena. The movie’s name is ‘Coyote vs Acme’ by Warner Bros, where the Leader of Cenation is going to once again show his acting talent. To the relief of his fans, the movie received a massive reprieve after the Studio caught the ire of many filmmakers.

There was a massive uproar after it was announced that Warner Bros. is looking to snub the movie out for tax purposes. In a surprising turn of events, according to Matthew Beloni of Puck, the Studio has finally decided to show it to the audience. However, it’s not certain when it is up for sale and will not be erased.


It was surprising to many filmmakers because Warner Bros. usually shows them in theatres or on their streaming platform- HBO Max. However, they have been really cold-hearted recently with the filmmakers as they snubbed Batgirl and Scoob! Movie’s sequel.

It is noteworthy, that the former 16-time World Champion returned to WWE during the month of October. He imparted his wisdom to several stars like Carmelo Hayes and many others during his visit to NXT. As his run came to an end, he uplifted Solo Sikoa from the Bloodline at Crown Jewel 2023.
