John Cena made quite a career for himself outside WWE, but now his schedule is a bit lighter. The shoo-in WWE Hall of Famer recently saw one of his upcoming projects shut down.

The former 16-time world champion, known for his extensive wrestling career, played a role in ‘Coyote vs. Acme,’ a live-action hybrid film that featured the iconic Looney Tunes character, Wile E. Coyote. This particular project was produced under the guidance of James Gunn, renowned for his work on the Guardians of the Galaxy series and Super, with direction by Dave Green, known for his directorial work on Earth To Echo. Notably, production for the film had concluded in 2022.

However, recent reports from Variety confirm that Warner Bros. has made the decision to pull the completed film from its release schedule. This move by Warner Bros. is reminiscent of a similar incident over a year ago when the studio withdrew a fully completed Batgirl film, citing it as a tax write-off.

This is a shame, because it is possible that fans will never see this fully produced film. Sadly, many fans, and critics of the industry, have speculated that Warner Brothers is doing this type of thing as a tax write-off.


John Cena, who has been a prominent figure in both the wrestling and film industries, participated in WWE Crown Jewel, where he faced a decisive loss against Solo Sikoa. This match might be one of the final appearances for Cena as the conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA strike suggests that he will likely be transitioning back to his Hollywood endeavors in the near future.

We will have to see what happens in this situation, and if the movie ever sees the light of day. Sadly, Coyote vs. Acme doesn’t look like it is coming out right now.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
