In a seemingly unlikely crossover, wrestler John Cena has gone viral on Twitter after he quoted a part of BTS member RM’s speech at the United Nations, having expressed his love for the group in the past.
K-pop is undoubtedly one of the biggest sensations to take over the world in the past few years, with certain groups amassing millions of fans and seeing huge success in charts across the world, not just in Korea.
Whenever a non-idol celebrity interacts with a K-pop star, it always ends up causing a stir online. In July, fans were shocked after TikTok star Bella Poarch met up with some of the members from popular group BLACKPINK, with some even hoping they would collab on a song.
This time, the interaction is perhaps even more surprising to some fans. On September 7, hugely successful group BTS took the stage at the United Nations General Assembly meeting to give a speech about current world issues, watched by hundreds and thousands of fans.
Everyone seemed to resonate with what the group said in their speech, and that also includes pro-wrestler John Cena. He’s previously been vocal about his love for the group in an appearance on the Late Late Show.
On September 24, Cena decided to tweet one of his favorite quotes from the event, by none other than BTS’s RM.
“‘If we believe in possibilities and hope, even when the unexpected happens we will not lose our way but discover new ones.’ – RM,” he posted.

Of course, fans’ reaction was immense, and they quickly flooded Cena’s tweet with messages of surprise and excitement, many saying they’re proud to see him tweet RM’s quote. They were also quick to let everyone know who the artist is, for those among the wrestler’s following that were unaware.
