#10 John Cena – Tottenham Hotspur
Probably the most famous WWE wrestler of this generation, John Cena is reportedly a huge fan of Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur. The American wrestler visited White Hart Lane in 2008 and even received a jersey from former Tottenham manager Gerry Francis.
Speaking to the Sun, Cena said:
“There is such an atmosphere in that stadium, even when it's empty. It was an honour to receive this shirt from a legend like Gerry Francis – especially as he's a big WWE fan.”
Other famous fans of the club include Rupert Grint (yes Ron Weasely supports Tottenham Hotspur) and Jude Law.
