Whether you’re a fan of wrestling, memes, or watching Troye Sivan getting thrown down on live TV, you’ve probably heard of John Cena. He’s a legend of the sport, having been active for 18 years now, but the wrestling superstar has just added another notch to his belt, proving that he can bust out an awesome piano cover of a alt-rock classic when he wants to.
Recently, Brie and Nikki Bella, best known as the wrestling duo The Bella Twins, celebrated the milestone of having 900,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel. Of course, this calls for some sort of special event to mark the occasion. But what do you do to celebrate something of that calibre?
Well, if you’re The Bella Twins, you bring in Nikki Bella’s fiancé, and 16-time WWE champion John Cena to perform a piano cover of a Pixies tune.
Yes, as Rolling Stone reports, a tuxedoed John Cena recently sat down behind the piano to perform an instrumental cover of the Pixies’ 1988 hit ‘Where Is My Mind?’ for The Bella Twins’ YouTube channel.
While Cena doesn’t speak at all throughout the clip, the tender, delicate cover of the indie-rock classic speaks for itself, showing a softer side of the famed wrestler that few have seen.
Of course, this isn’t John Cena’s first foray into the world of music, with the wrestler having released his rather forgettable record You Can’t See Me back in 2005. Thankfully, this piano cover is a little bit more respectable, and if we’re being honest, it leaves us wanting more. If John Cena was to record a full album of alt-rock piano covers like this, there’s almost no denying the fact that the record will sell like hotcakes.
John Cena is also set to appear in the film Daddy’s Home 2, which is due to be released on November 10th. No word yet as to whether Cena has a musical appearance in the film, but we can only hope.
