Seth Rollins joins the MCU!
WWE superstar Seth Rollins was spotted on the new Captain America: New World Order movie set. Another WWE superstar in the MCU! While Rollins' role hasn't officially been announced, based on his outfit, he appears to be dressed as a member of the Serpent Society, an evil crew in the Marvel Universe. The crew is led by the character "Sidewinder" and can transform into various snakes.
Here is some footage and photos of Rollins on set from a spy in Atlanta:
Captain America: New World Order is currently scheduled to be released on May 3, 2024. The fourth installment of the Marvel franchise will be the first to star Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson, the new Captain America, replacing Chris Evans in the lead role of the franchise after Evans bowed out.

John Cena was on Busted Open Radio with Dave LaGreca and Bully Ray and was asked about his WrestleMania match, as well as all the different places wrestlers can work nowadays. Cena responded "Well, I get excited with potential. I really do get excited with potential and it’s because I think in my origin story, I wasn’t exactly someone that people were betting on.
