Top WWE Star, 24, Breaks Character To Share John Cena’s Impact on Him: “Through Bullying, Through My Dad Not Being There”
Hollywood superstar and WWE legend John Cena is a hero and idol for many. Not only did he play a key role in the pro wrestling careers of several individuals, but he also had a massive impact on their lives. The former WWE Champion, unknowingly, helped Theory overcome his setbacks in early life.
During a recent interview on The Ringer Wrestling Show, the WWE Raw superstar revealed how Cena’s character and personality helped him in facing bullying in the absence of his father.
In this interview on The Ringer Wrestling Show, Theory said, “For me, with the whole John Cena thing, from the very beginning, that was motivation for me. Through bullying, through my dad not being in my life, I was able to watch it on Monday or Friday and feel like I could escape through this.”
“So, for me, that character that he was and that personality, it did a lot for me. Even meeting him and having that conversation, it was cool,” he added. (H/T: 411 Mania)
