During his legendary career in WWE, John Cena was a role model to millions of fans around the world. The presentation of Cena was established to please children and have an insane amount of merchandise produced. Although “Big Match John” had criticism in the WWE regarding his “uniform” he always had the size a 3x.
During the latest episode of the “Kliq This” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash claims to have an influence on Cena’s decision to wear larger shirts. A surprise admission from “Big Sexy.”
“When they would hand out the nWo shirts, guys would be like ‘give me a medium,’ because they’d want it skin f*cking tight.”
“I’d always tell them to give me a 3X or the biggest I could get because I told John [Cena] and he asked me for advice and I said ‘Always wear a baggy t-shirt, especially if you’re not going to work in it because when you take it off, there’s that ‘holy f*ck [from the audience], that guys got a good physique,’ as opposed to f’ing having a t-shirt sprayed on you.”
Nash spoke about the impact his comments had on Cena and how much they meant to his career in a joking matter He said that the shirt was the most important thing of Cena’s career in WWE.
“If you look, throughout his career, he always wore the oversized t-shirt. I think when you really look at his entire career, that’s probably the most important thing. That big fing t-shirt.”
The platform for Cena’s shirt layout will never change unless he goes full heel. But it’s nice for Nash to give Cena some pointers. That is what veterans in pro wrestling do give back in helping the next generation.
