(ORLANDO, FLORIDA) - May 12, 2016 - WWE Superstar, actor and reality television show host #johncena astonishes two U.S. #invictusgames competitors and their family members with an unforgettable VIP chauffeur experience in a #rangeroversportsvr.
Cena, an Invictus Games ambassador for #jaguarlandrover, collected unsuspecting U.S. team members Tino Ulli and his girlfriend Shari Trujillo and Joshua Jablon and his girlfriend Lindsey Green, and chauffeured them to ESPN Wide World of Sport, the venue for the Games hosted in Orlando from May 8-12.
Hidden cameras were installed in the #rangeroversportsvr to film the passengers reactions, which can be viewed here.
John Cena said, "I'm honored to be part of the #invictusgames in Orlando this year and have the opportunity to meet with some of the US team. It was a lot of fun taking on the role of surprise chauffeur and I was pleased to have the opportunity to get to know the competitors and their family members. We are all indebted to our servicemen and women and I fully support the Games and the opportunity it gives us all to recognize the heroes of our nation. I wish all the competitors the very best of luck for the final stages of the Games."
Joshua Jablon, a retired Marine Lance corporal from Mankato, Minnesota who is affected by invisible injury PTSD, has earned a silver medal in discus throw and gold in shot-put during the Games.
Tino Ulli is a retired Air Force Staff Sergeant competing in rowing, powerlifting and shot-put, and is also affected by PTSD.
The WWE Superstar will also be featured in the #invictusgames Closing Ceremony (May 12), presenting the ' Land Rover Above and Beyond Award' to an individual who has gone above and beyond not only what is expected as a competitor, but also as a teammate at the #invictusgames. It is judged on sportsmanship, commitment to the Games and demonstration of an inspiring example of 'Invictus Spirit'.
Launched in 2014 by Prince Harry, the second edition of the Games is taking place from May 8-12 2016 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. #jaguarlandrover also recently announced that it will continue as Presenting Partner of the 2017 Invictus Games to be held in Toronto, Canada.
