The New Day Reveal John Cena's Financial Investment In Clash Of Clans
Serious pressure from the 16-time WWE Champion
John Cena was so obsessed with the Clash Of Clan mobile video game that he heavily invested a lot of money into the game, according to The New Day.
Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E are renowned for being huge gaming fans in WWE but the trio have revealed a time when Cena coerced most of the WWE locker room to join him in playing Clash Of Clans.
Big E says Cena used to take it so seriously that he, and others, felt the pressure from the 16-time WWE Champion if they didn't perform well enough in wars in the game.
Speaking on the New Day Podcast, E said: "We were essentially coerced into starting Clash of Clans. It was not something that I really wanted to do. But I said, ‘Alright’, a bunch of the boys were doing it, you know, a bunch of the boys were in on it. We started a mobile game if you don't know, yes. It was kind of cool. We could bond together. We had a little group chat, and we would, you know, talk about things.
"We very quickly realized that, because Cena, Cena was the one who had coerced us, and he was dumping a lot of money into a consequence, and there's no reason to spend money, but if you spend money, it allows you to accelerate quicker in the game. So a lot of us were on what like, level 3 bases, level 4 bases, and this man was like level 11.
"Everything was maxed out, like instantly, and he was in it. He was in it. Same with Billy Kidman, Billy Kidman, this man dropped up to five figures. Five figures.
"But we very quickly realised that we were going to TV in fear of John Cena. Not because we didn't have a great match, we had a bad promo, or we showed up late to the building, it was the sheer look of disappointment.
"As you know, you only got one star in battle. God forbid, you got no stars when we went to battle. He would just look at you and you knew. Words wouldn't even need to be said. You knew that you had let your clan down. So yeah, it kind of became pressure-packed."
