Last month, John Cena stopped by Ellen to talk with the host about his show American Grit and his recovery from shoulder surgery that was keeping him away from the WWE ring, and host Ellen DeGeneres presented the former heavyweight champion with a pair of customized cargo shorts with her face and lots and lots of sparkles stitched onto them.

On Memorial Day Cena will finally return to actin on WWE’s Raw and he let the daytime TV star know that he would be putting her gift into action when he gets back on the canvas.

Cena’s return comes a little over a week after fellow injured superstar Seth Rollins came back to the injury-plagued pro wrestling outfit at the Extreme Rules PPV.
