Shane Watson imparted a few batting techniques to WWE superstar John Cena as the latter is in Australia to promote his upcoming movie

WWE star John Cena got a few batting tips from Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Sydney Thunder’s skipper Shane Watson. The 40-year-old wrestler is in Australia promoting his upcoming animated movie Ferdinand. The American wrestler held the cricket bat as if he is holding a baseball bat. Former Australian cricketer Watson helped Cena with his stance. The 40-year-old posed for a few photos with Sydney Thunders team members and shared them via his Twitter account.

Cena posted a funny caption with the photos too. Here’s his tweet:

Here’s the video of Cena getting bowled by Watson –
