Actor and WWE superstar John Cena put on a show in the Twin Cities over the weekend, both in the ring during Friday Night Smackdown at Target Center and then again at a movie theater in Plymouth.
The Smackdown performance was expected, but his presence at Emagine Willow Creek in Plymouth stunned an auditorium full of people who were invited to a special screening of The Suicide Squad, a highly anticipated supervillain movie that hits theaters and HBO Max Aug. 6.
"I'm going to go in after the movie is over, talk a little bit, maybe answer some questions," said Cena, who was introduced by Twin Cities radio personality and comedian Miss Shannan.
"I thought it would be awkward that I dressed up but now I realize I'm right at home," Cena joked, acknowledging fans at the screening who were dressed as characters from the movie.
Cena was still dressed in his WWE Smackdown gear when he arrived at the theater. Prior to his arrival, the philanthropic champion spent time with a young fan after Smackdown. The moment was caught on video.
The Suicide Squad has a loaded cast, featuring Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Cena and many more, including Sylvester Stallone and Viola Davis.
Here's a bunch of tweets from people who were at the theater when Cena arrived.
