With EA Sports PGA Tour about to release in a few weeks the Golf world both in real life and video game wise is going to be very crazy. EA’s release is not good news for PGA Tour 2K23 as many golf fans will likely jump ship.

This has pushed PGA Tour 2K23 to do something to make them stand out. Considering that April is a big month for WWE (plus WrestleMania 39 earlier in the month) and 2K also makes WWE games, it apparently felt right to have John Cena as a playable golfer in PGA Tour 2K23.

Do you know what’s super cool about this gimmick? The backstory of Cena’s attire in the game. 2K decided to pay homage not to pro wrestling but to the DC Superhero character he plays; Peacemaker.

On a side note let me just say, Cena is brilliant as Peacemaker and I’m super excited to see another season of the Peacemaker series.

When looking at John Cena as Peacemaker below notice the silver helmet, and red/blue shirt.

Cross Branding

Guess what he’s wearing in PGA Tour 2K23? A red and blue polo shirt, white pants (What he normally wears as a character), and a silver hat! The only thing missing is yellow, but man this was well played by 2k. They made a playable John Cena to help attract WWE fans, DC Comics fans, and keep Golf fans playing their games.

It’s also revealed what some of his stats will be and when he becomes available in PGA 2K23. He’ll have a 100 Power, 87 Putt Weight, 90 Lie Range, 95 Transition, 53 Timing, 55 Swing Path, 56 Putt Path, and 65 Shaping. The point with these stats is that he will hit with a lot of power, but he won’t be a great hitter in trickier or strategic shots.

Cena will become a playable golfer on April 7th, 2023. If that date sounds familiar, well that is the exact date EA Sports PGA Tour will be available to play! I for one am excited to play as the Peacemaker, are you? Let us know in the comments below.

PGA Tour 2K23 is playable now on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
