WWE® Launches “John Cena’s Fast Lane” Mobile Game

WWE, in partnership with WWE Champion John Cena®, today announced its first-ever 3D mobile racing game titled WWE Presents: John Cena’s Fast Lane. The free mobile app is available globally for download from Apple iTunes and Google Play for use on iOS iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices.

“We are committed to giving our fans great experiences on every platform, and we are thrilled that WWE Champion John Cena, a car enthusiast, is at the helm of this new mobile app,” said Perkins Miller, Executive Vice President, Digital Media, WWE.

“I’m excited to share my two favorite passions, WWE and cars, and bring this new racing experience to fans everywhere,” said Cena.

Players enter the game as young street racers, crushing the quarter-mile, with sights set on being the best in the world. Cena takes players under his wing, passing on knowledge he learned during his years behind the wheel. Players will get to challenge opponents in cities across the U.S., including shadowy figures from Cena’s fictitious racing past who are bent on winning by any means necessary. Players will master the art of shifting on the track and customizing cars in the garage with Cena coaching along the way.

The app was built in partnership with Chaotic Moon Studios. For more information visit iTunes, Google Play or visit WWE.com.
