I'm not crying—you're crying! It's hard to see John Cena tear up and not cry. The WWE star couldn't help but well up when he was surprised by a group of fans who wrote thank you notes to him. Cena sat down and read the letters one by one. He heard stories of people who were inspired by him during their most difficult days, whether they were struggling with depression, surviving an injury or worried about a loved one fighting cancer. What he did not know is, several of the people who wrote the messages were sitting in a nearby room, listening to him read the thank you notes and get choked up. The plan was for the thank you note writers to get to meet Cena and thank him face to face.
One by one, he met more of the faces who sent him letters. "Thank you for changing all of our lives," Tyler told him as the group presented Cena with a trophy inscribed with "Life Changer."
"Just remember that you guys do the work," he told the group. "Don't think that you're the only one who's up against it and don't think that you're the only one who doesn't have challenges to face every day. You all lead by example and I mean it when I say it, never give up."
