Jimmy Fallon (being Jimmy) asks whether he learned any moves from the 68-year-old actor to which John Cena had a fitting reply.

The move seems to be John Cena’s favorite as an unconscious Jimmy Fallon stands as proof. The wrestler is seen stating haunting things like “don’t move” and “I have the power of lightning” to an already scared Jimmy Fallon. The video ends with John Cena residing over a knocked-out Jimmy Fallon. Although, this was all for comedic purposes only the people couldn’t help but admire the humor and the ingenuity of the duo.

So what happened to Snafu if it had such killer moves?

Killer moves and a legendary cast cannot save a film it appears. Despite being a hyped-up movie, the film started sensing troubles due to the increasing tensions between US and China. After the cameras stopped rolling in 2019, the film sat waiting on shelves hoping for a distributor to pick it up. John Cena, while promoting F9 in China in 2021 also set himself up for controversy when he referred to Taiwan as a separate country (which is a big no-no from China).

Since then, there has been no news about the release of the movie. The duo of Jackie Chan and John Cena were very excited to be a part of the movie but it seems that both are quiet now for a while. Recent rumors suggest that the film could potentially release this year i.e., 2022 but nothing has been confirmed yet. John Cena was recently seen in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad (2021) as Peacemaker followed by a spin-off of the character, with him in the starring role.

Peacemaker is available to stream on HBO Max.
