John Cena to wrap up filming FOX reality show in mid December

John Cena

An article in the Washington based The Dispatch has revealed that John Cena will finish filming his new reality TV show American Grit for FOX in December 16.

The series is being filmed in Eatonville, Washington, with Little Mashell Falls and Pack Forest serving as the background for most of the filming. Cena is the host of the show which is a competition testing 16 men and women in four-person teams in military-grade and survival-themed challenges with a prize of up to $1 million.

The show – which has 10 episodes – will air in Spring 2016. John Cena is expected back in a WWE ring on the day after Christmas for a non-televised live event at Madison Square Garden in New York. He was previously advertised for the house show in Inglewood, California, at The Forum on December 19 but that would have meant Cena would get no time off after finishing filming.
