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.

    The Jets owner has proven time and time again what his priorities are.

    Johnson is rapidly approaching Ross as the premier joke owner of the NFL.

  6. kgun80 says: Oct 13, 2012 12:05 AM

    Thank you… Just another reason to HATE the Jets

  7. spellingcops says: Oct 13, 2012 12:31 AM

    Yeah, but they’re not a circus. Right, Rex?

  8. drainbameged says: Oct 13, 2012 12:39 AM

    New Jets QB?

    btw…Ross is better owner then Miami had before, at least he’s willing to spend money.

  9. jkennedyguitars says: Oct 13, 2012 12:42 AM

    Glad its not a circus in jet-land. Wait…

  10. CKL says: Oct 13, 2012 1:04 AM

    There’s no real Pats fan in the universe who would be an honorary or any other type of captain for the NYJ. This guy’s a dog faker.

  11. gergie1957 says: Oct 13, 2012 1:12 AM

    The circus is truly coming to town.

  12. granadafan says: Oct 13, 2012 1:22 AM

    You really should put “” around “wrestler”. There’s nothing wrestling about the WWE.

  13. sloiggles says: Oct 13, 2012 1:22 AM

    Say what you will about Cena and the WWE, but they are one of the biggest contributors to the Make A Wish program, particularly Cena himself, and an enormous supporter of the US military. Every WWE event has a good amount of active military members in attendance, as well as…you guessed it…NFL/MLB/NHL/NBA athletes.

  14. pdxpanther says: Oct 13, 2012 1:22 AM

    But they’re not a circus…

  15. arlingtonsynn says: Oct 13, 2012 2:06 AM

    He’s a better QB than Sanchez and Tebow….

  16. discosucs2005 says: Oct 13, 2012 2:12 AM

    Typical Jerry Jones type…wait the Jets? Yeah, I can see that…

  17. barroomhero80 says: Oct 13, 2012 2:33 AM

    @packfaninvikeland… As much as it pains me to agree with a packet fan. Yup

  18. pacoltsguy says: Oct 13, 2012 2:34 AM

    PT Barnum would be proud.


  19. nomorsacbball says: Oct 13, 2012 3:17 AM

    How about concentrating on winning some games. This franchise is a complete joke. Pitiful

  21. thegiantyankee says: Oct 13, 2012 3:40 AM

    how about finding an honorary g.m.

  22. eventhorizon04 says: Oct 13, 2012 4:30 AM

    “Johnson is rapidly approaching Ross as the premier joke owner of the NFL.”

    When did Jerry Jones lose that title?

  23. irishnativeson says: Oct 13, 2012 4:56 AM

    Romney already holds the honorary captain title… for Mattel’s Etcha-Scetch.

  24. 4thqtrsaint says: Oct 13, 2012 4:56 AM

    Ssssssquirrel kicker!!

  25. theandy59 says: Oct 13, 2012 5:59 AM

    I’ve always thought that there was a little Captain Lou Albano in Rex Ryan….Now if the Jets could only sign George “The Animal” Steele, they could make some noise.

  26. mrsulldog says: Oct 13, 2012 6:25 AM

    i will die laughing if the Jets fans boo him and then cheer for the equally clean-cut and goody two shoes Tebow.

  27. driftw00d says: Oct 13, 2012 6:45 AM

    Trade for Favre, trade up for Sanchez, trade for Santonio, trade for Tebow, and hire Sparano = The Jets Five Moves of Doom

    But they’re not a circus.

  30. franchisetagged says: Oct 13, 2012 7:13 AM

    What, the Brooklyn Brawler was busy??

  31. east96st says: Oct 13, 2012 7:23 AM

    You have to respect where Woody is coming from. It’s just SO unfair to him to pay as much in taxes as he did eight years ago when he has worked so HARD to inherit every penny he has.

  32. source7769 says: Oct 13, 2012 7:38 AM

    can Cena run the wildcat???

  33. shadowman1433 says: Oct 13, 2012 7:48 AM

    And the circus continues……

  34. dogman9 says: Oct 13, 2012 7:51 AM

    Just a reminder

    Pro Football = entertainment
    Pro Wrestling = entertainment

    and everyone is out to make a buck.

    Go Jets!

  35. buffalose says: Oct 13, 2012 8:01 AM

    Hahahahahahahahah, oh man!! Too funny!

  36. pftcensorssuck says: Oct 13, 2012 8:15 AM

    Jets name a WWF wrestler as “Honorary Captain”, but don’t want to be called a circus ……..


  37. hehateme2 says: Oct 13, 2012 8:25 AM

    And now, under the Big Top we have… (enter the clowns)

  38. garryjercia says: Oct 13, 2012 8:30 AM

    Is this a veiled attempt to suggest that nfl results are predetermined ?

  39. summitgingo says: Oct 13, 2012 8:39 AM

    I hope he puts Woody in a headlock and keeps him there until he agrees to sell the team. Then he should tell Dolan he’s next.

  40. pizzon says: Oct 13, 2012 9:02 AM

    your kidding me right?

  41. airplayful says: Oct 13, 2012 9:03 AM

    I love that PFT let Jets fans know Cena roots for the Pats. Give him. WARM New York welcome Sunday and an 80,000 finger salute.

  42. Gordon says: Oct 13, 2012 9:07 AM

    Even before this post, I had a hard time telling the difference between Johnson and Ross.

    Now I know, they are the same person. Have you ever seen them in the same room at the same time?

  43. dg0122 says: Oct 13, 2012 9:10 AM

    How appropriate…rasslin coming to the circus

  44. ampats says: Oct 13, 2012 9:24 AM

    Classic ! A Patriots fan as the Jets honorary Captain.

    There will be 68000 + more to choose from next week in Foxborough

  45. i10east says: Oct 13, 2012 9:37 AM

    You can’t see me!!!!

  46. rdav29 says: Oct 13, 2012 9:56 AM

    Yeah but can he throw a slant?

  47. realitypolice says: Oct 13, 2012 10:38 AM

    I think the Jets should buy a bunch of those tiny cars that they pack the clowns into at the circus, stuff all of the players in them and then drive them out on the field so the fans can laugh and laugh as player after player comes tumbling out at midfield.

    “How did they get all of those players into those tiny cars?”, they will all say in joy and wonderment.

    And then they can shoot Tim Tebow out of a cannon and have him land on top of Mark Sanchez.

  48. buffalose says: Oct 13, 2012 11:16 AM

    So a backup quarter back, a professional wrestler and a republican walk into a bar….

  49. cervetta12 says: Oct 13, 2012 4:16 PM

    This is largely due to the fact that the Ultimate Warrior turned them down….

  50. rcali says: Oct 13, 2012 6:16 PM

    Bobo the clown not available? I honestly do feel bad for you Jets fans, you are just innocent bystanders in all of this stuff.

  51. newkirk850 says: Oct 13, 2012 6:47 PM

    So, I guess the dolphins don’t have it as bad as I thought. Thank you Woody. I feel better already.

  52. rc33 says: Oct 13, 2012 7:52 PM

    It makes no sense; he’s a fan of their most hated rival.
    There’s gotta be other NYrs to choose from; Anthony Weiner’s not doing anything. Bernie Madoff, anyone?
