WATCH: John Cena starring in new YouTube Red animated series, trailer online now


Fans of WWE superstar John Cena knows that he has a lot more risque sense of humor than his white bread WWE character lets on.

Take a look at his new movie Blockers to see that Cena has no problem with R-rated humor and seems comfortable in those roles. That is now coming to television as well.

After hitting a home run with their continuation of The Karate Kid in the fantastic Cobra Kai, YouTube Red has another high profile series coming in just two weeks. On May 30, the young streaming network will release the animated series Dallas & Robo, which stars John Cena and 2 Broke Girls Kat Dennings in the lead voice roles.

The synopsis for Dallas & Robo is … bizarre, to say the least. Bojack Horseman creator Mike Roberts is the showrunner here as well. The animated series is based almost solely towards adults and has adult situations and what sounds like a lot of adult language as well.

Kat Dennings voices Dallas, a “boozy ex-stock car racer and an overly sensitive AI.” They travel through outer space in a spacecraft that is basically a big truck, get drunk and fight a lot of people (or at least the robot does the fighting while Dallas keeps drinking).

They also navigate through “cannibal bikers, rival space truckers, and vending machine burritos.” Dallas’ space truck is actually named “Harry Undersack.” Check out the Dallas & Robo trailer here.

For WWE fans who might be surprised to see John Cena taking on roles in R-rated movies like Blockers and a clearly adult animated series like Dallas & Robo, Cena made it clear that he is able to separate his two personas easily.

In an interview with Screen Rant, Cena said he doesn’t feel comfortable saying risque things in the WWE ring with little kids looking up at him. However, he has no problem doing things like the “butt chug scene” from Blockers since that movie has the R-rating attached to it, changing the intended audience.
