John Cena Talks About BTS Army’s Impact On His New Books, Discusses Upcoming Movies On “Ellen DeGeneres Show” (Watch Now)

John Cena guests on Monday’s edition of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

During past television interviews, John Cena has heaped considerable praise on BTS and its ARMY of supporters. He does so again as a guest on Monday’s edition of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

When talking about his new motivational books “Be a Work in Progress: And Other Things I’d Like to Tell My Younger Self” and “Do Your Best Every Day to Do Your Best Every Day: Encouraging Words from John Cena,” Cena notes the impact BTS and the Army had on his self-discovery journey.

Specifically, Cena notes that BTS’ album project “Love Yourself” was making an impact just as he began exploring the importance of self-love. Referencing the fortuitous timing, Cena notes that his vulnerable Tweets about the subject — Tweets that were very risky for his larger-than-life brand — gained support from and resonance with the BTS Army.

“[The messaging] caught fire because of the BTS Army,” says Cena. “I was essentially sending a similar message of the band. And these books exist because the BTS Army was brave enough to support my vulnerable moment.”

Cena additionally talks about his highly anticipated movie projects — and more — during the remote interview.

The episode will air Monday, but videos follow:
