That’s an interesting combination. John Cena made his long awaited return to the WWE last week at Money in the Bank. Cena’s return would seem to set up a huge match against Roman Reigns at Summerslam, which could even draw in some extra mainstream attention. With Cena now advancing his career in Hollywood, there are some newly opened doors waiting on him. One of those involves an odd connection to a well known actress.
Cena appeared with Margot Robbie and James Gunn on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote The Suicide Squad. During the interview, Robbie mentioned that she watched wrestling growing up and loved the Undertaker. Robbie also mentioned that she had a boyfriend who was obsessed with Cena, to the point of dressing up like Cena for his birthday. The boyfriend also had a cardboard cutout of Cena in his bedroom, which Robbie was scared to mention to Cena. She ultimately told him the story soon after meeting him.
This is certainly a story. Check out the full interview plus some of what Robbie’s boyfriend liked about Cena:
Opinion: That is the kind of thing you do not hear about very often but it is something that fits in with wrestling. If nothing else, it is interesting to hear that someone who is such a big star in Hollywood was a wrestling fan before but not anymore. Wrestling is one of those things that a lot of people have watched at some point and it is kind of sad to hear how many of them have given up.
