The American held the bat aloft as if it were its baseball equivalent, as the bowler ran in to deliver the ball.

To his credit, Cena at least made contact, but the damage was done, with Shane Watson of all people having to step in to correct his technique.

The retired Test cricketer walked the wrestler, who wearing his own personalised Thunder jersey, through the mechanics of batting Australian-style.

It is not known whether Watson divulged on the LBW law or the use of the Umpire Decision Review System.

The Big Bash season kicks off on December 19 – Daily Mail Australia recommends John Cena stick to his day job.
