The WWE champion recently took part in WWE Tribute To The Troops which premieres tomorrow (Dec. 20) on NBC where professional wrestlers traveled to Iraq to perform for the men and women of the armed forces.
Cena says wrestling for the troops is his favorite gig because he deeply respects the brave, patriotic soldiers.
If he hadnt gone into wrestling, Cena wouldve enlisted himself, though hes not sure he could hack it in battle.
But the soldiers seem to think hed make a hell of a warrior.
Each year when he visits Iraq, Cena is flooded by soldiers who give him their military coins and combat patches as a thank you.
Cena is always honored and choked up by their offerings, which to him, are the highest forms of flattery.
Hes such a sucker for military souvenirs that each year he visit Iraq, he brings back an empty bullet shell filled with dirt from the warzone.
