WWE’s John Cena Picked as Jets’ Honorary Captain Despite Being Massachusetts Native, Patriots Fan

It's not clear who should get the blame here — the Jets, for picking a Massachusetts native and Patriots fan to lead the J-E-T-S chant before a game, or the Massachusetts native and Patriots fan for accepting the invitation.

But whether it makes sense or not, WWE star John Cena will be an honorary captain as the Jets face the Colts this Sunday.

Cena has been tabbed for pregame captaincy and cheerleading duties, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, who also notes that Cena was likely picked because Met Life Stadium is hosting Wrestlemania on April 7.

Still, it's a curious choice to have a self-proclaimed Patriots fan leading the New York faithful — or expecting the New York faithful to follow along with a Patriots fan.

Let's see how that one turns out.

That's some requirement to be a Pittsburgh fan.
