John Cena is hosting this weekend’s edition of “Saturday Night Live,” and NBC has begun hyping the appearance.

The network shared a promotional photo and commercial Wednesday morning.

Playing off the wrestler’s pro wrestling fame, the video clip finds John Cena making a “ring entrance” onto the SNL sound stage.

Airing at 11:30PM ET this weekend, the episode will also feature Maren Morris as musical guest. She is also making her debut in the role.
