John Cena has garnered a reputation for being a gentle giant. The Cenation leader has shown an affinity to treat people with kindness especially kids (despite not wanting one himself). That is why when he appeared on the BBC One program, The One Show, to promote his new film with the director of the film Matthew Vaughn, hosts Alex and Ronan Keating couldn’t help but read out a letter written by Julie, the mother of a girl named Jess, whose wish Cena granted by meeting her at a Mak-a-wish event back in 2019.
