He may be busy preparing for his battle with AJ Styles in his quest to attain a sixteenth World Title this Sunday at Royal Rumble, but John Cena always remembers the one thing more important to him than any championship. That’s why he took to social media and personally extended his wish to the WWE Universe for a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year ... in Mandarin, no less.
It’s still quite amazing to hear The Cenation Leader so fluent in the language, though not all that surprising — in fact, The Cenation Leader has voiced numerous in-language messages to fans in China, and last year spoke Mandarin at a press conference to announce WWE’s new partnership with China and the company’s first-ever Chinese talent signing in Tian Bing. He also personally welcomed the first three of seven more Chinese talent recruits that WWE signed when they arrived at the WWE Performance Center earlier this month.
Watch Cena’s message as he wishes his best for everyone who celebrates the first day of the Chinese lunar calendar (and what China also calls its “Spring Festival”).
