It's official. WWE is recycling (or ripping off) one of Hulk Hogan's gimmicks in a bygone era to help John Cena return to WWE television programming despite being "fired" by Nexus leader Wade Barrett.
Nearly a decade ago, Hulk Hogan had a run in the WWE as the masked Mr. America. The persona was Hulk Hogan in disguise, wearing a mask. "Mr. America" used Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme music and all of Hogan's signature moves and phrases. He was the subject of a storyline that took place after Hulk Hogan was forced by Vince McMahon to sit out the rest of his contract.
Now consider the following:
WWE is now confirming that John Cena's "cousin," who just happens to be a Mexican wrestler, will be performing inside a WWE ring in just days.
Meet "Juan Cena," John Cena's cousin (aka John Cena dressed up as Juan Cena in order to continue performing in WWE during the current termination storyline).
Cena - Juan Cena, that is - is now being advertised in triple threat matches with WWE Champion The Miz and Wade Barrett in early December.
Juan Cena may debut on WWE Raw as early as this coming Monday.
