John Cena can speak Mandarin as if being John Cena isn't enough

New, 21 comments

John Cena is a man of many talents. He was a joy to watch in Trainwreck as Amy Schumer's overly sensitive lover and was arguably the best part of the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler trainwreck Sisters (I would follow them both to the ends of this Earth, but that film was painful). Oh, he's a wrestler and a meme, too, I guess.

I love and agree with the tone of the Reddit post that brought attention to this delightful news, which was titled: "Holy Shit! John Cena Speaks Mandarin for like 2 minutes in a WWE press-conference."

Two minutes is a long time to be speaking a foreign, notoriously difficult language. And to be doing that at a press conference for the noble cause of promoting your company(?)'s expansion in the Chinese market is brave and admirable!

Why does John Cena know Mandarin? Redditor Fizzay pointed out that the WWE has free language courses for wrestlers, and they can take as many as they want. For an organization run by Vince McMahon, I find this news to be delightfully unexpected. Today I learned that the WWE has some really great benefits. Do they do 401k matching, too?
