Here's the Scoop...
I know nothing of wrestling, but do enjoy that John Cena guy. He's got what Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's got. I don't know what it is, but I know I don't got it. And if I could get some I would but I can't so let's get right to the story...
John Cena performed his new finishing maneuver on The Tonight Show which he recently debuted on WWE programming.
Cena, now with a new hairstyle, explained to host Jimmy Fallon that he learned the move while training with Jackie Chan in China. Cena and Chan are filming an action comedy together titled Project X.
The move, when translated from Mandarin, is known as The Lighting Fist. It involves Cena crossing his arms before delivering a sudden punch to the face. Cena said the punch is his sixth move of doom, a series of attacks which normally ends in a victory following an Attitude Adjustment.
The WWE star used the attack to win his match against Elias and Kevin Owens Saturday at Super Show-Down.
"I have tremendous accuracy with this deadly maneuver," Cena said while performing The Lighting Fist on Fallon. "But if you move, I will knock you out."
Cena was also on hand to promote his new children's book titled Elbow Grease. The story, Cena said, will teach kids the definition of gumption, to never give up and that it's okay to be different.
"I kind of go by the motto of never giving up and that's inspired a lot of young people, but sometimes parents feel that maybe the venue of WWE isn't ready for their kid," Cena said about the inspiration behind Elbow Grease. "I wanted to take that ethos and reach it out to a younger reader."
He seems like a good dude.

James Gunn to write, may direct DC's 'Suicide Squad 2'
James Gunn has been tapped to write Warner Bros. and DC's Suicide Squad 2 with the possibility of directing the project after Disney fired the filmmaker from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Gunn, best known for helming the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films, will be delivering a new take on the Suicide Squad, a group of villains tasked with taking on secret missions by the government in exchange for lighter prison sentences, The Wrap reported.
Suicide Squad, released in 2016 from writer and director David Ayer, featured an ensemble cast that included Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. The film grossed $746 million worldwide.
Gavin O'Connor was originally attached to helm Suicide Squad 2, but will now be directing drama Torrance starring Ben Affleck, Deadline reported.
Gunn was fired from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in July after a number of offensive tweets he posted from 2008 to 2009 resurfaced. The tweets, which featured Gunn joking about pedophilia and sexual assault, made the rounds online after they were highlighted by conservative blogs.
The cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff and Gunn's brother Sean Gunn, posted on social media an open letter in support of Gunn.
"I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don't anymore. I don't blame my past self for this, but I like myself more and feel like a more full human being and creator today. Love you to you all," Gunn previously said on Twitter when addressing his firing.
Bautista, who has continued to support Gunn on social media, expressed interest in Suicide Squad 2 on Twitter Tuesday. "Where do I sign up!" he said alongside an article about Gunn joining the film.

Ruby Rose debuts as Batwoman in 'Arrow'-verse promo
Ruby Rose is giving fans a first glimpse of her Batwoman costume.
The 32-year-old Australian actress shared a photo of herself as Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, ahead of the Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl crossover.
The picture shows Rose striding forward in a black and red bodysuit with a cape and mask. The bat signal can be seen in the background.
"First look," Rose captioned the post, adding bat and heart emojis. "Crossover event December 9 at 8pm ET."
E! News said Rose's costume was designed by Colleen Atwood. Atwood previously designed the signature costumes for Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.
The annual Arrow-verse crossover will begin production Tuesday in Vancouver, B.C., according to Entertainment Tonight. The three-episode crossover will air Dec. 9, 10 and 11 on The CW.
Rose left Twitter in August following backlash to her casting. Fans objected to Rose playing Batwoman, who will be openly gay in the crossover, despite the actress being lesbian.
"Where on earth did 'Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can't be Batwoman' come from -- has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I've ever read. I came out at 12?" she tweeted before her exit.
Rose is known for playing Stella Carlin on Orange is the New Black, and has appeared in the films xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2 and The Meg. She will return in John Wick 3: Parabellum in 2019.

Who is the next cast member to announce his departure from 'Shameless'?
Cameron Monaghan, who plays Ian Gallagher on Shameless, has announced he is leaving the Showtime comedy after nine seasons.
The 25-year-old actor wrote in an Instagram post Monday that the next episode will be his last.
"I have known since last year, but I didn't want to give it away too early as I wanted this season to be a surprise for the audience, allowing them to experience Ian's unsure journey with his character," he said. "This role has been a joy to inhabit, a wild and special ride, and I'd like to thank #Shameless as well as you, the viewers, for being there with him."
Monaghan was 15 when the pilot was shot for the show about a dysfunctional Chicago family, starring William H. Macy as Frank, the troubled Gallagher patriarch.
"I was very lucky to mature and grow with this show," Monaghan said in his post. "Experiencing so many firsts, maturing as an actor, a professional, and a human. In the process gaining friends, family, and the best coworkers a very lucky actor could ask for, and for this I can be nothing but gracious."
Monaghan's exit follows that of Emmy Rossum, who played Ian's sister, Fiona. Rossum announced in August that she would not return for Season 10.
Monaghan is also know for his work on the Batman prequel series, Gotham.
