In a recent interview with Logan Paul as part of the Impaulsive Podcast, John Cena discussed several topics, including his original plans if a wrestling career did not work out for him.

“When I found that ring, I was just about ready to take a career leap that would have not allowed me to do that, and if that failed, I was just going to go back home, I was going to join the Marines.

I just failed at every avenue in life, I got my college degree, I could not apply it, I tried to be a cop, I failed the exam, I was running out of time and money, and I just did not know what to do, I was like man, I can follow a schedule, I’m in shape, I think I can abide by the rules, these people have always been heroes to me, it’s right in San Diego.

I was in Los Angeles at that time, I’m like man, I’m going to for it. The weekend I was thinking about it, a friend of mine was like, dude you’re always talking about RAW, you know we train down in Orange County, would you want to do it. Yes, of course.”
