Conspiracy theorists believe John Cena appearing naked at the Oscars was sinister ‘ritual’

Conspiracy theorists believe John Cena appearing naked at the Oscars was sinister ‘ritual’

Some believe there's a deeper meaning to the Oscars skit

People have expressed concerns about John Cena after his naked Oscars skit.

The actor left little to the imagination at Sunday night's ceremony (March 10) in a nod to Robert Opel running across the stage naked at the 1974 Oscars.

Cena left viewers and the audience stunned during the comical skit, which took a lot of persuading to do.

Rob Mills, the exec VP of unscripted and alternative entertainment at Walt Disney Television, revealed that they had to ensure that there wasn't a bulge or Cena's butt crack on show for the risqué moment to take place to avoid any complaints and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fines.

While it's been widely covered that the bit was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the 1974 ordeal, others think it could have a deeper and darker meaning.

Some conspiracy theorists have suggested that Cena was made to go naked on stage as part of a so-called 'humiliation ritual' at the hands of the Illuminanti.

"John Cena going through an intense Illuminati Humiliation Ritual right now at the Oscars," someone wrote. "This is next level stuff they have put Cena through lately... Was the fame and fortune worth it John?"

"John Cena naked at the Oscars is 100% a humiliation ritual. There's no other explanation for it," echoed another. "It's not funny to normal people. It's not entertaining. It's not purposeful."

A third added: "John Cena going through an intense Illuminati humiliation ritual right now at the Oscar's."

A different X user insisted: "You cannot deny this anymore. This is a Hollywood Humiliation ritual. They got John Cena to do this in the Oscars! If you don’t believe this is not a real thing. You are definitely clueless."

But others were quick to note that Cena has long showcased his ripped physique to fans and used to don a pair of tiny shorts during his WWE days.

"John Cena being accused of doing a humiliation ritual by people who used to cheer him on when he was wrestling nearly naked men is too much irony to unpack," one person said.

"The humiliation ritual s**t is so ridiculous. John Cena has always been weird, it’s why we like him," a second person penned.

Someone else went on: "I've seen four tweets too many talking about John Cena doing a humiliation ritual, as if he wasn't the biggest professional wrestler in the world for 15 straight years doing far more embarrassing things than being slightly naked on the Oscars but I digress."

UNILAD has contacted Cena's reps for comment.
