  3. he's 6'4". to weigh 185 he would have to be a bean pole. i haven't seen him lately, but i'm gonna assume you are exaggerating.

    Much more impressive that I was assuming it would be. My back hurts just watching him do those squats.

    Its pretty amazing. You would think that MMA fighters would follow suit.

    Pretty sure he was an amateur powerlifter and bodybuilder before getting into the fed.
     
  14. dudes built like a brick so its not really surprising that he'd be strong

    Ronnie Coleman deadlifts 800 pounds for 2-3 reps.
    He is pretty freaking strong for being a bodybuilder.

    But yeah, i get what you are saying.

    Semi-serious, semi-informed response...

    * Cena probably has to do more job-related tasks that involve maximal strength with heavy weights, compared with most MMA fighters. Notably, picking up and throwing huge guys.

    * Cena presumably has no concerns about weight class, and wants to be as big and strong as possible so long as he stays relatively lean.

    * Pro wrestling is (I think) still a bigger money-maker than MMA, and because he's one of WWE's biggest stars, the management probably invests more money in his training than, say, Zuffa puts into their top athletes.

    * Because pro wrestling involves so many body types, and wrestlers' personas are often based partly on their physical characteristics and abilities, there may be less of a cookie-cutter mentality regarding training in pro wrestling, compared with MMA. In other words, maybe nobody's telling him "no, you have to do it this way 'cause so-and-so does it this way."
