WATCH: John Cena Joins Yet Another Elite Group Of WWE Superstars

John Cena’s exit from WWE’s upper echelon has been a slow and steady process. As the company continues on without him as the full-time face, Cena continues on with his new life outside of the ring.
Now he has added another element to that life. John Cena is now a New York Times bestselling author. His book is entitled Elbow Grease and is No.1 in the Children’s Picture Books category.

The book’s title character is a monster truck but he’s a monster in description only. The truck has four big brothers and the story follows Elbow Grease as he fights to prove himself by competing in a demolition derby. Cena’s fans will immediately recognize this type of storyline, as John’s WWE character always fought to overcome the odds.

Cena’s literary accomplishments joins those of Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan, as well as Mick Foley. Foley was the first WWE Superstar to make the list with Have a Nice Day, followed by Foley is Good and The Hardcore Diaries.

A truly surreal moment….#ElbowGrease is a @nytimes #1 Best Seller! Thank you to everyone who made this a reality. Incredibly proud of this story and what it means for audiences of ALL ages and absolutely thrilled to be able to share it. pic.twitter.com/ppZseixf9B

John Cena’s writing career may or may not become a full-time venture for him. But it’s obvious that WWE’s former top guy is keeping busy outside of the pro wrestling business. However his time in a WWE ring is not over yet.
John will compete at Crown Jewel on November 2 in the Eight-Man World Cup Tournament. The match reads like a who’s who of the industry, as all participants are former WWE champions.

Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton and The Miz will join Cena as they fight to prove who is the best in the world. Whether or not John will return to WWE programming before or after Crown Jewel takes place is unknown. Cena’s next big project is a starring role in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, set to premiere on December 21, 2018.

Rumored Regime Change In New Japan Pro Wrestling A Major Cause For Concern

New Japan Pro Wrestling is one of the most successful companies in the business today. NJPW is the second largest promotion in the world and has amassed an impressive fan following not only in Japan but in the United States and all over the world as well.
But now there may be a cause for concern within New Japan. According to Cageside Seats, (via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter), NJPW is in the midst of a regime change. It’s not known who is specifically involved in this new regime but apparently, it consists of non-pro wrestling people.

This is surely not very encouraging news for many fans, who have been following the New Japan product over the past several years. Led in the ring by Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi and The Bullet Club, NJPW has taken great strides to expand the brand, especially in America. New Japan has partnered with Ring of Honor Wrestling in the past of course but the company has also run live events of its own in the states.

But if this new regime is not fully experienced in pro wrestling, then any forward progress that’s being made could be in jeopardy. Harold Meij recently became the new President of the company in May of 2018. It was believed by many that Meij brought a great business sense to New Japan and had a vision to expand the organization in ways that no one had before.

However if backstage operations are changing, then the overall product itself will certainly change as well. Part of New Japan’s success has been attributed to the uniqueness of the brand. NJPW only resembles WWE thanks to the wrestling ring and some of the talents like Chris Jericho, who have worked in both companies but each promotion is indeed very different.
New Japan will continue to partner with Ring of Honor in 2019, when the G1 Supercard takes place on April 6 at Madison Square Garden. The sold out event is booked in WWE territory during WrestleMania weekend, a feat which very few pro wrestling insiders could even imagine possible. New Japan is certainly on the upswing though what impact its regime change will have on the company remains to be seen.
