During his session on Pardon My Take, The Champ relived the moment he used the platform to inform his fans about Osama Bin Laden’s termination by the forces.

“I was being fed the news live. And we were to pay per view in the DC area. We’re talking, this is a piece of news that shook the United States to its very core with the events in 9/11. I thought it was something that people should know, and, Okay, I know this information. Now, I’m in front of this audience, they should know this. I just tried to think of a way to convey the message to make it as digestible as possible. That’s what popped into my head.”

The Champ wanted the fans to know about it at the PPV

Cena revealed that when he got the live news, he did not want to wait for the fans to go back home to find out about it. He knew he had to somehow convey it to his fans.

“I wanted people not to find out, when they got home, I thought about that event. And, that moment in time was so impactful, that I wanted people to know right there. That’s just, I tried the best I could to convey that message. I’m glad you remember it in paraphrase form, I appreciate it. It means that affected your life in some way. But I just tried the best I could to do it.” H/t Pardon My Take
