When you think of John Cena, what comes to your mind?
As a 16-time WWE champion, John is absolutely massive! Standing at 185cm and weighing 114kgs, he is a towering figure with an intimidating on-stage presence. But… did you know he also has a soft spot for BTS? Yup! John Cena is a fan!
As always, it starts with a post online. Constantly presenting a tough and menacing face on stage, John is hardly this fierce figure offline. He soon embarked on a journey of posting self-love messages on Twitter.
One thing led to another, and his vulnerable side was spotted by none other than BTS’ ARMY! Through his honest messages, he gained the support and love of BTS’ followers, further encouraging him to embrace who is he.
“I put out all these messages about self-love and I’m thinking, ‘This is not going to be a good idea because this big, larger-than-life, 16-time WWE champion is now talking about vulnerability and the fact that you are enough and you shouldn’t be ashamed of who you are,’ but it caught fire because of the BTS ARMY.” – John Cena
With his growing love for BTS, John eventually went on to write not one, but two motivational books! What was his source of inspiration? BTS’ third album, Love Yourself: Answers, in 2018.
He has been such a big fan, he has expressed his love for them on multiple occasions! Check out this interview he had on James Corden’s talk show, where he shoots both envious and shocked looks at his fellow guest.
Or how about that time when he offered to be BTS’ bodyguard?
Answer: Love Myself
Many around the world enjoy BTS’ music with their feel-good messages and dedication to their craft. Other than being the first ever to land No. 1 on multiple Billboard charts and recently having won 4, they have been outspoken about support for others. Just last month, they spoke up about facing Asian racism. Last year, they donated $1 million to support Black Lives Matter. The Army matched this amount in just 25 hours!
So if John Cena can show his soft side and talk about self-love, so can the toughest of us. Here are some of the most outstanding men in their field who have spoken about their struggle with mental health.
