So... wrestling is still pretty popular I take it.
Wrestler John Cena will serve as Jets’ honorary captain
The line between pro football and pro wrestling will further be blurred on Sunday.
That’s when WWE star John Cena serves as the honorary captain of the Jets before Sunday’s game against the Colts, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
As Mehta points out, Cena is actually a Massachusetts native and a Patriots fan.
The Jets likely were willing to ignore that fact given that MetLife Stadium will be hosting WrestleMania in April.
Jets fans may not be quite as understanding.
The bigger question is whether the Jets’ final pre-election home game will feature former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney as the honorary captain.
