Professional wrestler and Hollywood actor John Cena has taken command Korean pop group BTS’s legion of fans, known as the BTS Army, after appearing on  James Corden’s late-night show to talk about his love for the K-pop boy band.

You can’t see him, but that doesn’t stop John Cena from being a proud member of the BTS Army. As one of the most widely recognized figures to come out of professional wrestling since The Rock, Cena has made great strides in Hollywood over the past few years.

In between numerous movies and holding the record for most Make-A-Wish appearances, he’s also taken time to  become a fan of the iconic K-pop group BTS.

BTS is one of the most widely-recognized K-pop groups in the world.

While appearing on an episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden alongside actress January Jones, Cena was shown a picture that Jones took with BTS backstage at one of their concerts, prompting genuine jealousy and excitement from the wrestler.

Jones, however, revealed that she wasn’t a fan and didn’t even know who they were, claiming that she’d asked for a picture because “they had like 9 million security guards.” Many viewers captured Cena’s shocked and confused expression and shared it on Twitter.

Jones went on to say that after posting it to Instagram, she received a lot of comments from fans saying, “hands off, lady.” But Cena said that Jones was “so lucky” to get a picture with them, and joked that he’d even, “tried out to be their bodyguard.”

Corden pressed him to give a legitimate explanation on why he “loved” BTS, and the former WWE champion gave a thoughtful response on why he’s so fond of the group.

“They were the first Korean pop band to actually connect everybody throughout the world,” Cena said. “I began to listen to their music and listen to the message they sent to their fans, and it’s one of self-love and self-reflection and being confident in yourself, even though you may be different.”

Cena’s comments begin at 1:28.

“So not only is the choreography and the development of personalities and the entertainment they put on spectacular,” he continued, “young people are listening to their music, and they’re sending a good message through their music.”

After a resounding round of applause, Cena revealed that as an old-school rapper (a reference to one of his first gimmicks in professional wrestling), he connected with RM and J-Hope as his favorites. Several fans of the group praised Cena’s explanation on social media.

So far, a collaboration between BTS and Cena has not yet been announced, but fans of both are hoping for the Doctor of Thuganomics to appear on a track on a future album.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”


After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
