The cinema sometimes surprises us with people we thought would not be able to act credibly, and they end up shutting our mouths.
Among them we can highlight a wrestler converted to an actor, and this time it is the turn of one well known to all: John Cena.
|10 Facts : John Cena Is Not American Speaks Mandarian|
As those who follow wrestling news will know, almost all the wrestlers there choose a nickname, and create a character with certain characteristics. Despite the fact that today we all know him by his name, John Cena started out by calling himself “The Prototype” , in a character that was supposed to be half human half machine, although he ended up abandoning it soon.
2 He’s also a rapper
There is no doubt that John Cena, despite what some might believe, is a truly multifaceted man. That he also knows how to rap proves it. His album ‘You Can’t See Me’ sold over 143,000 copies in its first week . It reached number 15 on the Billboard 200 and number 3 on the Billboard US Rap Albums. Almost nothing.
3 Varied origins
John Cena is American, but as with many of them, he has quite varied ancestry. His father’s family appears to come from Italy, while his mother has French-Canadian and English ancestry . Although the surname Cena sounds like a nickname, the truth is that it is real, and it only confirms the Italian origin of his paternal family.
4 A tough childhood
Despite the fact that today seeing that imposing physique may seem unthinkable, the truth is that John Cena has spoken on some occasions about how he was a victim of bullying when he was little . However, he has always encouraged all those who suffer from it to move forward, and to be very proud of who they are.
We do not know if Cena always wanted to dedicate himself to acting, what seems to be clear is that one of his professional goals for a long time was to dedicate himself to bodybuilding . If he had continued with it, the world of wrestling and cinema would have lost a very colorful character that, without a doubt, we love in the industry.
6 Speaking Mandarin
