John Cena gets emotional surprise from fans whose lives he changed

When you think of professional wrestlers in the WWE, the first thing that comes to mind may be less "caring and compassion" and more 'muscles and body slamming.' In the case of WWE champ John Cena, he's proven that wrestling can include all the adjectives. Now some of them have repaid him with simple words of thanks. One is from a man who thanked Cena for his message to "never give up", which he said helped him get through a dark time following a serious accident. Each fan who wrote Cena appeared afterwards to thank him again for everything he's done for them. Their words on paper almost moved Cena to tears. Tyler describes how his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and how Cena's message helped his family through that tough time.

Then Tyler popped out from behind a poster (like Cena has done in the past).

Unbeknownst to the wrestler, several fans, including Tyler and his mom, had been backstage all along, waiting to surprise him with hugs and a gift.

As Cena reads the letters, he becomes visibly moved by their stories and the video makes it clear he read each of them out loud. Cena was also presented with The Prototype with a "Life Changer" trophy.

One John Cena is the guy who, depending on who you talk to, actively buries young talent he doesn't like and changes the finish of matches so he looks extra strong in victory. "Don't think that you're the only one who's up against it, and don't think you're the only one who [has] challenges to face every day". "This is one of those extremely rare moments and I really appreciate that".
