There are some things that you just can’t prepare for, whether you’re a WWE legend like John Cena or not.
John Cena has accomplished many things inside a WWE ring. He’s been World Champion 16 times, he’s won Royal Rumble’s and headlined WrestleMania against some of the biggest stars in the history of the wrestling business. Yet sometimes, life is a whole lot less glamorous, and involved pooping yourself while hiding under the ring.
“As I Was Puking I Crapped My Pants” – John Cena
Cena has spoken about the incident on a few separate occasions with details on the location varying slightly. Talking to the WWE Magazine back in 2008, Cena responded to a question asking him about the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to him in or out of the ring:
“It was in Winnipeg, and I was wrestling Scott Steiner, with Bull Buchanan as my lackey, I got food poisoning and thought I wouldn’t be able to wrestle, but went out there anyway. I took a DDT, rolled out and the timekeeper was there. I looked him in the eye and said, ‘Where do I puke?’ and he said, ‘under the ring.’ So I went under the ring and puked and everyone knew it. But as I was puking I crapped my pants. Luckily, it was at the end of the match, but nothing has ever topped that since.”
Fast forward 5 years and Cena recalled the incident again during an episode of Total Divas, however, this time stating that it happened in Saskatoon:
“I pooped myself once. I had to throw [my pants] away. It was in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I had food poisoning and I still went out to wrestle. Everybody knew— I was embarrassed.“
