The origin for John Cena’s beats revealed

- Tosh.0 took a look at pro wrestling on Wednesday night. Daniel Tosh ripped a fan who was going nuts for Sting's WWE debut, and noted that "pro wrestling is like the Beatles, the good ones are dead." Tosh admitted to being a wrestling fan growing up, but dialed it back because he wanted to become successful. You can watch the full 8+ minute segment in the video above.

- Mike Mooneyham recently interviewed WWE artist Rob Schamberger, which you can read here. Schamberger will be painting outside of WrestleMania Access through Sunday, and will paint a portrait of 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

LA Weekly has an article here John Cena about the origins of John Cena's theme. Hip-hop producer Jake One discovered the beats in the music composed by Pete Schofield, and noted that he originally wanted to offer it to Ghostface Killah. Cena's cousin Marc Predka, aka Tha Trademarc, who collaborated with Cena on many of his tracks, said that they knew they had their beat as soon as they heard it.

"I remember John saying that he wanted something that sounded like the theme from Rocky," said Predka. "We put a bunch of CDs full of beats we received in a five-disc changer and kept pressing 'play-change-play-change-play-change.' But as soon as we heard the beats Jake One had put together, we said 'Oh my God, this is it!' We stopped and decided that it wasn't even worth going through the rest of the beats we received at that point."
