WWE Superstar John Cena spoke to Virginia’s HamptonRoads.com this week to promote WWE’s upcoming Tribute to the Troops special. Here are some highlights of what John Cena said:

Pro Wrestling & Patriotism Going Together:

“You know what, I don’t know. At the root of the good-vs.-evil story is what America is all about.”

Meeting Members of the Military:

“It’s kind of backwards. Every one of them wants to thank us, but we’re there to thank them. It’s a mutual respect.”

What It’s Like Performing for the Troops

“The energy is crazy. They like to get excited. We encourage them to take a night off and come to the event and be exactly the fans that they want to be.”

Almost Joining The Marines Before Getting Into Wrestling:

“I was literally about to join the Marine Corps (Officer Candidate School) when a buddy asked me if I wanted to be a wrestler. I thought I would literally last two weeks in there and the Marines would always be there.”
