Speaking during a recent appearance on The Late Late Show hosted by James Corden, Cena revealed he settled for the outfit as he always wanted to be a rapper.

“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,” Wrestling Inc quoted Cena.

The 16-time World Champion further added he wanted to set himself apart from other wrestlers by sporting street outfits.

Previously, Cena also wore cargo-inspired shorts during his in-ring appearance, but gave up on them as they exposed his crotch.

“So I’m pretty much in street clothes, and I chose denim because you don’t blow the crotch out of denim,” he said.
