The ESPYS To Be Hosted By John Cena
Despite not being able to see him, John Cena is still going to be the host of the 2016 ESPYS. The 15 Time World Champ will host the ceremony for the first time this July 13th. Currently, Cena hosts the FOX show "American Grit" and has been away from WWE rehabbing a shoulder injury since early January. He did appear in a segment at WrestleMania helping out The Rock.

Cena will make his long awaited (by the 7-12 year olds) return to "Monday Night Raw" on Memorial Day night. Having Cena return to "Raw" to eventually feud with Roman Reigns will be must watch television. Of course this is mainly because we want to see if the fans will just boo both Reigns or Cena or if they will be forced to cheer one of them.
Along with "American Grit", since being out of action, Cena has been a regular co-host on the "Today" show and really would make a good permanent co-host with Kelly Ripa, despite how unfeasible it is.
Via WWE..."It is truly an honor to be named host of the 2016 ESPYS," said Cena. "Not only will the biggest names in sports and entertainment come together to recognize some of the most spectacular athletic performances of the year, but we'll also raise funds for The V Foundation to further much-needed cancer research."
There currently is no ESPY for WWE Superstar of the Year or Match Of The Year (there are Slammys for that) but with ESPN's increased WWE coverage, maybe we aren't too far away from that actually happening.
