The WWE star was in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday to talk about his upcoming movie titled Bumblebee and ended up gushing about the talented boys of BTS. Why is John Cena all of us right now?
As you may be aware, the man has mentioned before that he is a really big A.R.M.Y. and even attempted to confirm it for the K-Pop group in their own language.

But while his Google translated Korean was not the greatest, his fanboy feels definitely came through.
While on the Comic-Con red carpet, Cena talked to ET, telling the outlet that he is determined to meet BTS.
But how is the WWE star planning on doing that when the supergroup seems to travel all over the globe?
They must be really difficult to catch especially now that they are getting ready to go on their world tour as well as release a new album.
Cena explained that ‘I’m petitioning to be their secret bodyguard. I’m currently doing some business in China, and China’s really close to Korea, so you never know what can happen. But I think they are actually here in the States though. So we may be passing each other.’
The wrestler also gushed about his bias, J-Hope, during the ET interview and explained why the member holds that place in his heart.
Apparently, Hobie has some ‘street cred’ just like him!
But John Cena loves the A.R.M.Y as well!
‘I’m a fan of fandom. That is why I love places like Comic-Con. That is why I love WWE. Because people show their passion. When I became aware of the BTS phenomenon, it hit me like a storm. I listened to their music. I enjoy their music. But I really enjoy the following and the passion that they create. I think that’s something special.’
Cena, who couldn’t stop talking about BTS, also praised them for the fact that they were the group that actually made K-Pop as global as it is today, which, in his opinion, is proof enough that they do their job very well.
