Two WWE legends featured in a couple of today's Super Bowl commercials.
One of the things that many people look forward to when watching the NFL's championship game is the multi-million dollar ads that play during the breaks. If you're watching, you'll have seen John Cena starring in a Mountain Dew commercial, while Dave Bautista appeared in a Rocket Mortgage spot alongside Tracy Morgan.
In Cena's case, he proves he can count and challenges the audience to do so too because if they are able to figure out how many bottles are in the commercial, they have the chance to win one million dollars.
Secret’s out. If you count all the bottles in my #MTNDEWMAJORMELON Super Bowl ad, you could win a million dollars.— John Cena (@JohnCena) February 1, 2021
this tweet to be notified by @MountainDew when the counting begins this Sunday. #ad Rules: https://t.co/QfYBsDKBwo pic.twitter.com/Fiemu50Ni4
Cena has not performed on WWE TV since WrestleMania 36 when he lost to Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House Match. He was, however, seen in the WrestleMania location announcement that WWE released on January 16.
Batista's Rocket Mortgage cameo saw him ready to fight a potential homebuyer after being summoned by Morgan. The Guardian's of the Galaxy star also appeared in a teaser to the commercial, which can be seen below.
Dave Bautista is poised for a big 2021. Not only will he officially be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but he will star in Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead and Denis Villeneuve's Dune, both of which are currently in post-production.
Additionally, for all of you combat sports fans, E Trade's new commercial featured a female wrestler inspiring people to get in the best financial shape of their lives. Joe Esposito's iconic "You're The Best Around" played over a montage of a young child training. The company is of course best remembered for their talking baby ads that aired years ago.
