WWE Superstar John Cena Gets Body-Slammed by Nickelodeon Slime | 2017 Kids' Choice Awards

WWE Superstar John Cena has taken a lot of hard punches and body-slams during his wrestling career, so it’s no surprise that he handled getting slimed like royalty.

The host of the 2017 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards shared a exclusive video with TheWrap on Friday warming up to take the stage in front of thousands of young fans on March 11.


In the sticky teaser, Cena does a unique take on his WWE anthem “My Time is Now,” turning it into “My Slime is Now.”

“Get ready to scream, let’s go now. Seeing green, yeah, you know now,” the Trainwreck star raps, in front of a colorful backdrop.

“You should call me Sir Prize because you can’t see me coming,” he brags.

Cena got some help in the music video from some of Nickelodeon’s biggest stars including Henry Danger’s Jace Norman and Riele Downs, Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin from The Thundermans, and JoJo Siwa.


But of course, the song had to live up to its title — and the Nickelodeon tradition — with Cena getting slimed at the end. NickALive!'s pretty sure that won’t be the last time that happens!

Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards airs live on Nick USA on Saturday, March 11 from 8-9:30 p.m. (ET/PT) from USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles, and on Nickelodeon channels around the world soon after, including Nickelodeon UK & Ireland/HD at Sunday 12th March 2017 at 10:00am GMT.

Kids can cast their votes across 28 categories with a brand-new voting experience on Nickelodeon’s digital platforms including Nick.com and the Nick app on iPad, iPhone, Kindle, and Android devices. Users will also be able to vote through Twitter and Facebook using special KCA hashtags and the hashtag of their favorite nominee. Fans also can join in on the slime-fest by going to Nick.com/kca17, the official destination for everything Kids’ Choice Awards, for hilarious videos, the KCA Creator game, quizzes and pictures, and to get the latest KCA news on this year’s show, nominees and attendees.

It’s the only live event where kids’ votes count and the biggest stars of the day line up to get slimed, while celebrating favorites from across the worlds of film, television, music, pop culture, sports and animation.

Watch John Cena's “My Slime is Now” promo here on TheWrap.com!

Nickelodeon Turkey To Premiere "Legends Of The Hidden Temple" On Friday 24th February 2017

Nickelodeon Turkey (Türkiye) will premiere the highly anticipated Legends of the Hidden Temple original TV movie, inspired by Nick USA's iconic '90s game show of the same name, on Friday 24th February 2017 at 16:10! Locally titled Gizli Tapınağın Efsaneleri, Isabela Moner (Liseden Önce Yapılacaklar Listesi Bölümleri, Transformers 5), Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer (Kabarcık Çocuklar, Shimmer ve Shine) join original TV show host, Kirk Fogg, and voice of Olmec, Dee Bradley Baker (American Dad!, Sünger Bob Kare Pantolon), in the 90-minute action-adventure movie, which tells the story of three siblings who embark on a high-stakes, life-or-death mission.


The Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie follows three siblings, Sadie (Moner), Noah (Critchley), and Dudley (Jurgensmeyer), who break away from a lackluster tour in a jungle, finding themselves immersed in a high-stakes adventure comprised of obstacles that they must complete in order to escape alive. The TV movie will feature elements from the original game show including: Olmec, a talking stone head who greets anyone who dares to enter the temple; The Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and cameos from a green monkey, red jaguar, and silver snakes, among others.


Legends of the Hidden Temple is executive produced by Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia, and produced by Amy Sydorick. The TV movie is directed by Joe Menendez (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) and written by Jonny Umansky & Zach Hyatt, and Alex Reid.




Additionally, Nickelodeon Russia (Россия) and Nickelodeon France have also announced plans to premiere Legends Of The Hidden Temple, locally titled Легенды затерянного храма and La malédiction du temple Maya, respectively, very soon. To celebrate the French debut of La malédiction du temple Maya, Nickelodeon France has launched a exclusive competition, in which one lucky winner can have their very own adventure at Parc du Futuroscope!

Dick Bruna, Creator Of Iconic Children's Character Miffy, Passes Away Aged 89

TVKIDS is reporting the very sad news that Dick Bruna, who created the globally successful children’s character Miffy, died yesterday at the age of 89 in his hometown of Utrecht, the Netherlands.


Throughout his 60-year career, Bruna penned and illustrated 124 picture books, including 32 about a little bunny named Miffy. First published in 1955, the Miffy stories are now available in 50-plus languages and have sold more than 85 million copies worldwide. Miffy went on to star in her own TV series, including a new CGI show, Miffy's Adventures Big and Small, that premiered in 2015 on Tiny Pop in the U.K. and on the Nick Jr. in the USA in 2016. Nickelodeon recently acquired the second season of Miffy's Adventures Big and Small, and will air the season later this year.


The classic Miffy and Friends series, which originally aired on Nick Jr. USA between 2003-2009, is also available to watch on the NOGGIN app in the US.

Mercis owns the rights for the Miffy brand, which has an extensive L&M presence across five continents. Miffy the Movie, the property’s first feature film, debuted in the Netherlands in 2013 and was later released in such countries as Japan, Australia, the U.S. and the U.K.

Bruna was born in 1927 to a family of publishers. He started working as a graphic designer in the 1950s, freelancing for his father’s publishing house, A.W. Bruna & Zoon. He first created Miffy (Nijntje in Dutch) in 1955 to amuse his young son, eventually publishing a number of picture books in the European market and later around the globe. Also throughout his career, Bruna worked for international organisations, designing posters and logos for such charities as UNICEF, World Aids Day and Amnesty International. He retired in summer 2012.

When previously asked to explain the success of Miffy, Bruna had replied: “I think it is because I spend a long time making my drawings as simple as possible, throwing lots away, before I reach that moment of recognition. What matters is reducing everything to its essence. Every shape captures the imagination, and I leave plenty of space for children’s imagination. But why Miffy, instead of another of my characters? I don’t know, perhaps because children feel very close to her—she is like their friend. In my mind, she is just a little girl, living through everyday experiences.”

Even towards the end of his distinguished career, Bruna had said that he was still spending a lot of time perfecting his drawings of Miffy. “Sometimes it takes me hundreds of sketches to get Miffy just right. With two dots and a little cross I have to make Miffy happy, or maybe a little bit sad—and I do it over and over again. There is a moment when I think, Yes, now she is really sad. I must keep her like that. At the end I have one big tear, and that is the saddest tear you can have.”

Bruna is survived by his wife, three children and six grandchildren.
