Published On December 7, 2012 by (Wrestling News, WWE News)

WWE Superstar 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.”
