While filming a new movie with Jackie Chan, longtime WWE Superstar John Cena has been living in Tinchuan, China. During his time there, Cena has been featured in a number of videos from China that have been released via WWE’s official YouTube channel.
In the latest video, Cena talks about acclimating to China after being there for a few weeks, traveling the world with WWE and how much longer he plans to remain in China. Check out some of the highlights from the video below.
On if he feels acclimated to China after being there for a few weeks now: “I’ve been here in China for three months now – and although we’re moving to different cities – I’ve been in the country for three months and I still don’t feel acclimated. I feel adjusted, things are still new and fun and I don’t quite understand everything. I think it would probably take a few years, but it’s amazing how much more comfortable I became after about a month and a half.”
On traveling the world with WWE and staying in China for another couple of months: “Travel in the WWE is amazingly relentless, but it’s only because we have an audience that’s so spread out. We come to perform in Shanghai, you leave the next day because the routing is so very difficult, it’s logistically impossible to keep you there because there’s another show to be had. This is similar to everywhere across the world. I’ve often told people, ‘I’ve been around the world 25 times and seen nothing.’ So, being able to come here and make this my home, like, I’m here.
“I’ve been here for three months and I’ll be here for two more. So, five months out of a calendar year, I’m here. Instead of saying, ‘I’m visiting,’ I’m now living here and I kind of treat it that way. I try to use language wherever I can, I try to be more accustomed to the culture, try different things, and I’ve found places that I like and developed my own sense of comfort, but I’m always trying to challenge myself to kind of experience more and more.”
