Sometimes life throws you a curveball, and in this case, it was in the form of a chance meeting between UFC Bantamweight Champion Sean O’Malley and WWE legend John Cena. The unlikely encounter happened in Glendale, Arizona, on September 22, when WWE’s Friday Night SmackDown rolled into town.

Before hitting the ring, John Cena needed a pit stop and decided to make a quick visit to a local coffee shop. Little did he know that fate had something special in store for him that day, and it involved sharing a bathroom with none other than the Sugar Show himself, Sean O’Malley.

Picture this: a single bathroom with two men, each grasping the handle, about to walk in simultaneously. It was a classic case of “who goes first,” and neither of them initially recognized the other. O’Malley later recounted the hilarious encounter to MMA Hour, saying, “I don’t think he knows who I am, and I couldn’t put it together right away.”

But the story doesn’t end there. After finishing their bathroom business and going about their respective coffee orders, Cena walked back into Sean O’Malley’s field of vision. And that’s when the lightbulb moment struck: “Why the heck does he look so familiar?” O’Malley realized, “That’s John Cena!”


Now, let’s dive into the realm of speculation for a moment. What if O’Malley and Cena had recognized each other during their brief encounter? Could there have been a wild crossover moment between the worlds of UFC and WWE? Imagine Cena calling on O’Malley to lend a hand (or a kick) against Solo Sikoa at WWE Crown Jewel when he faced the wrath of The Bloodline’s Enforcer.

Alas, we’ll never know what might have been, but the tale of their accidental meeting in a coffee shop bathroom is a delightful reminder that you never know who you might run into in this crazy world. If you have any wild ideas or thoughts about what could have transpired if O’Malley and Cena recognized each other, feel free to share them in the comments below. It’s a story worth speculating about, for sure!
