Cristiano Will Be John Cena’s New Teammate
Ronaldo won’t be challenging Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship…
Cristiano Ronaldo may adopt the slogan, ‘You Can’t See Me,’ and it’s not because he’s playing for a soccer league everyone outside of Saudi Arabia doesn’t care for.
Soccer news and rumors have hinted that the Portuguese superstar is negotiating with the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), and his debut could come as early as November 4 at one of the wrestling promotions’ marquee events, Crown Jewel, which is set to take place in Saudi Arabia.

Don’t allow your hopes to get too high, though. Ronaldo won’t be challenging Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship. Still, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has allegedly received a monetary offer he cannot refuse to make a one-off appearance at the Saudi-located event.
This announcement shouldn’t come as a surprise; WWE breaking news has often aligned due to the company collaborations and cameo appearances with sports athletes and celebrities in an attempt to boost ratings.

There is, however, one moment in WWE history all of us remember… and that’s when Mike Tysonmomentarily joined Degeneration X, beefed with Stone Cold Austin, but then turned on DX and slapped the sh*t of the Heartbreak Kid.
Will Ronaldo deliver such an iconic moment in WWE history as Tyson did? Probably not, but it’ll undoubtedly break the internet for 24 hours or so, especially if he appears alongside John Cena, one of the most polarizing figures in sports entertainment history.
And by the looks of it, Ronaldo’s so excited about his potential WWE debut that he’s already practicing moves on the pitch…
