"I'm going to destroy the Saturday Night Live cast!" Cena yells as he takes to the stage in Studio 8H, holding a bejeweled wrestling belt aloft as his WWE theme plays in the background.

"Except for Leslie," Cena says earnestly as the music cuts out and he drops his bravado façade. "I don't want any trouble. I think you're great. That wasn't meant for you."

This will be Cena's first time hosting the long-running sketch comedy series. The Trainwreck star will be joined by musical guest Maren Morris, who is also making his SNL debut.

Next week, Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck is set to host, along with musical guest Chance the Rapper.
