John Cena is a 16-time World Champion and carried the company on his back throughout the PG era. Since 2017, John Cena became a part-timer in WWE and has appeared sporadically due to his busy schedule in Hollywood. It seems Cena and Bruce Prichard once got very drunk and missed their flight.
John Cena began his acting career with 2006’s ‘The Marine,’ which had been produced by WWE Studios. All of John Cena’s works during the early years of his acting career were critically panned and didn’t do well commercially either.
While speaking on his Something to Wrestle podcast, Bruce Prichard discussed his time working with John Cena during the premiere of The Marine. Prichard then recalled the only time he ever missed a flight during his time with the company. This was when he got very drunk with John Cena and ended up waking up at 3:45 the next day.
“We were celebrating, and of course we got back to the bar in the Mariott in San Diego and Cena kept the bar open for us, and so we’re celebrating, having a good time, and they’re doing shots,” Bruce Prichard said. “[Conrad], you know me, I don’t do shots. John’s like, ‘Bruce, it’s my first movie, it could be my last movie, do a shot with me,’ so I did the Ric Flair and I tossed the shot and he caught me. He’s like ‘I’ve never been so insulted…’ and it was a Dirty Sanchez, which is tequila and some other crap. Tequila does not sit well with me, there’s something about it, man, that can make you get metaphysically crazy drunk, and I did it with him. Then we sat together and we did every shot making sure that the other one was drinking everything that they had in it.”
“Long and short of it is I woke up in my bed, tucked in. When I say tucked in, I was put in my bed in my suit, shoes still on, tie still on, in my suit, and the covers tucked into the bed. So that when I started to come to and started to get up, it’s like everything’s tied down. Not tied down, but tucked into the bed and sheets. Cena had apparently got me back to the room, put me in bed, tucked me in, took my briefcase, and put what he thought was my phone on my briefcase, and I guess went and tucked in everybody else he needed to tuck in. When I woke up, it was 3:45 in the afternoon the next day. It is the one and only time I had ever missed a flight, especially going home by waking up late or doing something stupid like that. So my entire career, I had never missed a flight and that was the one and only time that I actually missed the flight for not being able to get to the flight. I know that I had wake-up calls and alarms and all that sh*t set.”
After 2015 John Cena starred in much better movies such as Trainwreck, Sisters, Blockers and Bumblebee. John Cena has also starred in the highly popular film franchise, Fast & Furious and also in The Suicide Squad this year.
