The Doctor of Thuganomics John Cena from the WWE is making his triumphant debut in Fortnite on July 29, and he'll have both his Entrance Gear and Ring Gear. The now Hollywood star will also have his Five Digit Slapper Pickaxe, U Can't C Me emote, and WWE Championship Title Back Bling. This is how to unlock John Cena in Fortnite alongside his extras.

How to get John Cena in Fortnite

The 13-time WWE World Champion will be able to be unlocked through the store on July 29, starting at 1am. You'll have to buy him with your V-Bucks that you can earn in-game or buy through real money. You can earn 300 V-Bucks from the season pass. 

There are multiple bundles that will be available on the store, including just the skin, and then all the bonuses, like the Slapper Pickaxe, the U Can't C Me emote, and WWE Championship Title Back Bling attached with the skin for a more expensive price. Use your V-Bucks wisely.


As the content is supposed to help promote WWE's pay-per-view event Summerslam, the skin may become unavailable when the weekend is over. We will update this post if we hear otherwise. 

If you miss out on this crossover, you can play as John Cena in the free-to-play platform fighter Brawlhalla as well, or check out the official WWE 2K22 video game.

There is a Fall Guys Summerslam Set, which will have all three costume bundles in the Item Shop. If you pick up the full bundle, you'll gain a special Xavier Woods emote and Undertaker victory celebration. This special event in Fall Guys will begin on July 28 at 10am BST. 

Meanwhile, the popular vehicular football game Rocket League will get decals based on Roman Reigns and John Cena imagery. These will go live on July 28 at 5PM BST.
