Most wrestlers have similar ring attire which doesn’t stand out but there are some who have taken a different approach and wore gears that have become their signature.
One such trait is the iconic denim shorts which have been made famous by the former face of WWE and the 16 time World Champion John Cena.
During a recent interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden, the Cenation Leader talked about his ‘jorts’ and revealed that his “Dr. of Thuganomics” character originally inspired the attire:
“If you look at my other options, it’s just underwear, so I wanted to do some sort of street clothes because my persona was a tough, wannabe rapper kid from the mean street of West Newbury. Tough to do that in your underwear, tough to do that. So I also wore sneakers while most guys wear calf-high or knee-high leather boots.”
Continuing on the topic, John Cena recalled how he has also tried wearing cargo pants and revealed the reason why he decided to do away with them and wear denim shorts instead:
“So I’m pretty much in street clothes, and I chose denim because you don’t blow the crotch out of denim. I tried cargo pants and in front of the world a few times – here I am trying to put my life on the line with a superstar that I’m trying to have a match with and everybody’s just looking at my d–k. So, denim is a safe play. And they’re back in, so I kind of stood the test of time!”
