Many people have superstitions. I for example always put my left sock on first, and always make sure my friends aren’t looking before I start crying. 16-time World Champion John Cena is not different, although his eye muscles probably make it impossible to cry.
Speaking on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, Cena was asked about locker room hygiene within WWE, and he explained that you should always try and smell good as a courtesy to your opponent in the ring.
One of the ways that Cena did this was by eating Tic Tacs. A lot of Tic Tacs.
“My thing was always Tic Tacs. It’s a nervous superstition that I always have before we go on a broadcast. And I’ve had to ween myself off of them because I got up to three boxes a day. And that’s, like, right in the 20 minutes before broadcast. It’s pretty much 10,000 calories of straight sugar.”
Imagine how minty fresh his breath would have been during matches. While his calorie math probably needs some work, because if one Tic Tac is 2 calories, he would need to be eating 5,000 of them, and if you are doing that, you probably haven’t got any teeth.
