VIDEO: Jimmy Fallon Unearths Fantastic Photo Of Young John Cena
John Cena definitely isn't the first professional wrestler to get his start in body building, but he may be one of the only guys in the world whose embarassing throwback photos as a bodybuilder actually show him looking slim.
During his appearance on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, Jimmy Fallon revealed that he (or more likely, some very ambitious interns) dug up an old photo of Cena in early adulthood at a bodybuilding competition; and let's just say that he was nothing if not heavy handed with the oiling and bronzing.
Yup, that's as small as John Cena has been in the last 17 years. Drink it in. He's also not shy about admitting that it wasn't exactly the best experience of his life, which is hardly surprising because as Fallon points out in the interview, he is undoubtedly more golden and shimmery than the guy on the actual trophy. No person should every be that golden. If your spray job would be too much for a former Jersey Shore castmember, it's time to rethink everything in your life that led you to that moment.
Which is exactly what Cena did, proving that he's not above a little self-deprecation. Of course, that only made him seem even cooler.
"I made the stupid decision that I wanted to go on stage, with a bunch of other guys, oil myself up. But you know what? I'm over it, because now for a job I go out on stage, with other dudes...and oil myself up...What am I doing with my life?!"
Just as a sidenote, let me say on the record that he may be better at the Boston accent than every single A-List actor that's ever actually come from Boston. And yes, that includes Mark Wahlberg. Sorry Southie.
