John Cena appearing on boxes of Fruity Pebbles

WWE superstar John Cena has been getting insulted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for months about his colorful shirts, or as the Rock likes to say “With your bright green shirt and before that, your bright orange shirt, you are running around here like a big fat bowl of Fruity Pebbles.”

That negative has turned into a positive as Cena and Post Foods signed an agreement where Cena will appear on three million boxes of Fruity Pebbles from this month through March. These specially marked boxes will also include information about the “Make-a-Wish” Foundation (a program that Cena has granted more than 250 wishes) and WWE’s “Be a STAR Anti-Bullying Program.”

“It’s great when you can take a negative like the Rock’s comments and turn it into a chance to be a box of cereal,” Cena told Page 2. “Only in the WWE can that happen.”

The on-pack instant win grand prize winners will each receive a VIP meet-and-greet with Cena, priority seating and transportation to a WWE live event, and an autographed “Rise Above Hate” T-shirt, in support of the ‘be a STAR’ anti-bullying message. First prize winners will receive an autographed version of the exclusive T-shirt. The second prize winners will receive the exclusive T-shirt. To enter, look inside the specially marked boxes featuring Cena for a special code to submit here.
