During his appearance, Cena took an at-bat following his Introduction. The announcer said that it was Cena’s first time playing baseball since he was 15 years old.

Eventually, he was struck out. The announcer said that the pitcher was previously in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.

Following the strikeout, Cena rushed the mound. Instead of attacking the pitcher, he celebrated with the pitcher.

“Tampa Bay, we wouldn’t want to kick off the 2024 season anywhere else!,” The Savannah Bananas said in a Facebook post. “From World Series Champ Nick Swisher taking an at bat to WWE legend John Cena making his Bananaland debut, it was a weekend to remember.

We jammed out to Noah Kahan and danced the night away to some MJ. We love you bunches, Tampa Bay. We’ll see you next weekend, Peoria!”

The 46-year-old has been a wrestler since May 11th, 1999. According to, Cena has won nearly 2,000 matches in his career.

Last year, Cena won six out of his eight matches. He had returned to the WWE due to the filmmakers’ strike.
