It so happened that, when he found his music, he wanted his little brother’s approval. In that situation, his brother enjoyed the beat and did the Tony Yayo movement. When Cena saw that, he told his brother he would do the move on TV and pay homage to him liking the song. And his brother dared him!

“I’m like okay I’ll do that on TV to pay homage to you like it the best because I’m going to go with this for the song. And he dared me and on the dare I was like yo I’m definitely doing it. So, instead of doing the Yayo dance, I kind of did the reverse because it figured it would be more visible to show my brother on TV. Like hey, I’m doing the thing which you told me to do.”
