John Cena took the stage at the 2018 MegaCon in Orlando on Saturday, May 26 2018 and answered questions ranging from who’d he love to take on in the ring to the story behind his rap career. It was evident Cena was having a good time talking to fans, and in fact he kept taking questions long past the panel’s scheduled end time. Opting to skip lunch, Cena worked his way through questions from dozens of MegaCon attendees. A fair amount of the questions came from younger fans, some of whom asked better questions than the adults.
One of John Cena’s fans wanted to know his dream wrestling match. Cena replied, “I get that question a lot and my answer’s always the same. It’s my next match because that means I can continue to do the thing that I love the most.”
One fan took the mic and asked John Cena if he could rap for the audience. “Quick information flash about me. I’m 41. Although I do love hip-hop music and I do have my favorites, my favorites are mostly like early ’90s, I’m kind of just listening to a lot of K-pop right now,” answered Cena, revealing he’s listening to a lot of BTS recently. “I’ll leave the hip-hop to the hip-hop heads and the true MCs out there.”
