it comes to killer bodies, John Cena is up there with
some of the best.
pro wrestler has well and truly made a career out
of being one of the toughest guys in the world but,
that hasnt always been the case.
recently, the wrestling star and Trainwreck actor
opened up on being bullied as a kid and how it led
to him wanting to work out.
wanted to showcase not only my childhood past and
what got me into the realm of physical fitness, which
eventually led me to define myself, but also the current
state of affairs, he said.

remember the walk to the school bus, at the very least,
five times, shoved down, toppled down, he said
in a promotional clip for Crocs.
asked my dad, Is it okay if I start working
out? By the time I showed up at high school,
I was big. The guys who were pushing me down were
kind of like, We cool? he laughed.
Cena admitted it was a hard time in his life, he never
once got back at the bullies, believing it was
what helped him find his passion in life.
horrible as it was for me, it was a catalyst for me
to find a passion of my life. Everyone goes through
those moments of self doubt, he said.
Despite the wrestler overcoming his childhood bullies,
his success in the WWE has led to thousands of trolls
trying to take him down.
WWE calls me a polarising figure, which
is a very nice way of saying half the people like
me and half the people despise me. I deal with it
every single day, and Im in an industry where
its heavily criticised so you have to deal with
a lot of adversity, he
despite Cena having to deal with bullies everyday,
theres no denying he is still one of the worlds
greatest pro wrestlers and more recently, has built
an enviable acting career with roles in Amy Schumers
Trainwreck and the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler movie
