WWE Superstar, John Cena has been roped in by Blizzard Entertainment, to promote Overwatch 2 and its upcoming Season 6 Invasion, kicking off the new arc in the game's lore which shows the attack of the militant Omnic group Null Sector and the retaliation by Overwatch.

"The invasion is coming. The future is in jeopardy. I am the Enigma. I need to get a message out to our heroes. Null Sector's forces are attacking Rio, Gothenburg, and Toronto. I need reinforcements in these locations. We need heroes, now or never. Together we will fight for the future. Answer the call heroes, it is time to fight back. Prepare for the invasion," states John Cena as Enigma.

Talking about his involvement with Overwatch 2, John Cena said "It’s been fun seeing the Overwatch community try to put a face to The Enigma. Sometimes a face you can’t see is just what the world needs to sound the alarm of a looming, worldwide threat"

According to AOTF, Blizzard intends to continue using John Cena as 'The Enigma' and more can be expected from him on the Overwatch 2 Season 6 Invasion official website.


Earlier, the community had found multiple clues about John Cena's involvement with the project and all the speculations were on point.

  • Font titled 'Felix-Anthony' which is John Cena's middle name, John Felix Anthony Cena.

  • A linked image that simply read JC and was deciphered as John Cena.

  • Color font #042377 corresponding to John Cena's birthday - 04/23/77.

  • Background color #161616 hinting towards John Cena being a 16-time world champion.

  • Character type being labelled as Strong.

It will be interesting to see how the character of Enigma evolves through this season as John Cena assists the players through the PvE (Player versus Environment) missions and maybe even more.
