Actor and WWE star John Cena is known for his work and his seemingly random Instagram posts about things he likes and supports. This includes Indian captain Virat Kohli, who is currently playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. With the 2021 IPL season underway, fans found an old post by Cena, which is a photo of Kohli extending his right hand.
Cena has spoken about his love for cricket, which began after the 2019 World Cup he followed. Kohli's photo, posted on July 7, 2019, also features a smiling Rohit Sharma and Ravi Shastri in the background. Whatever the context behind the post, the picture established Cena's connection with Indian cricket, an association that fans of cricket and of WWE rejoiced.

Kohli's team, the Royal Challengers Bangalore, have started the 2021 IPL season with a bang. They currently sit at the top of the points table with two wins against the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad. The defending champions are in second place, followed by Punjab Kings and the Delhi Capitals. Chennai Super Kings, who have lifted the IPL trophy twice, are currently placed last with one loss and zero points. The Sunrisers are seventh with two losses.
John Cena and his wife Shay Shariatzadeh tied the knot last year in October. Reports reveal that Shariatzadeh was born in Iran, but is now a Canadian citizen. Last April, E! Online's Mike Vulpo and Jessica Cardenas reported that Shariatzadeh has received her bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia in electrical and electronics engineering.
John Cena and Shay Shariatzadeh got married in a private ceremony on October 12 in Tampa, Florida. While no other details about the ceremony were available, Cena and Shariatzadeh's marriage was confirmed by sources like TMZ Sports. Marriage rumours between the two started last February when Shariatzadeh was spotted wearing a ring after being seen at a park in San Diego.
