WWE News: John Cena confirms he will release another book this year
What's the story?
Wrestler, actor, presenter, philanthropist - and New York Times #1 Best Selling Author. While the last title may be the most unlikely for John Cena, it's a claim he can now add to his impressive CV after the release of Elbow Grease.
Well, after the success of his maiden voyage into children's literature, Cena has revealed that it's definitely not his last with the announcement of a sequel!
In case you didn't know...
In September, John Cena became a New York Times Best Selling author following the success of Elbow Grease.
According to Mashable, the book follows a Monster Truck named Elbow Grease who’s the runt of his mechanical litter and feels out of place, especially compared to his four older brothers. The story is said to be an inspirational tale that sees Elbow Grease prove to everyone that, no matter what obstacles are in his way, he has “the guts, grit, and gumption to do big things”.
The book is inspired by Cena’s own experiences, as he grew up with his four older brothers in West Newbury, Massachusetts.
Speaking to Mashable, Cena said:
“With Elbow Grease and the books to follow, I want to offer kids a fun and engaging way to learn about the power of ambition, dedication, and heart. These concepts have been transformative in my life…so important to me to pass the positivity on and help our youngest generation see that right mindset is key to achievement.”
The heart of the matter
Today, John Cena has announced the sequel to his debut book - Elbow Grease vs Motozilla! The 16-time World Champion calls it a very special product - and also gave a nod to WWE, hinting that - contrary to some speculation - his time in the squared circle is not over.
Elbow Grease vs Motozilla is scheduled for release on October 8th, 2019, via Penguin's Random House publisher.
