Kenan Thompson, Kate McKinnon, and the rest of the Saturday Night Live crew better watch their backs because superstar John Cena plans to "destroy" the cast this weekend.

NBC's hit comedy series has released an amazing new promo hyping up Cena's hosting duties on Saturday night and, as expected, the hilarious clip is filled with nods to the wrestler's in the ring antics.

The short video kicks off with Cena running through a SNL banner with his championship belt in hand as his walkout song "The Time Is Now" blasts over the background speakers. The champ then runs onto the famed Studio 8H stage to deliver a warning to the cast.

“I’m going to destroy the Saturday Night Live cast,” Cena declares before clarifying that the threat isn't meant for star Leslie Jones. “Except for Leslie. I don’t want any trouble. I think you’re great. That wasn’t meant for you. Ok? All right? Good.”

The second to last SNL episode of the year will also mark Cena's first time as host of the show. Country crooner Maren Morris will join the wrestler as the evening's music guest.

Check out the awesome promo below.

Cena is scheduled to host SNL on December 10.
