Recently, Hollywood actress Alison Brie appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. During that conversation she revealed she bonded with Cena over wrestling while filming for Freelance – an action-comedy.

“He’s great. He’s the best. I’ve never worked with him before, but we bonded pretty quickly over wrestling because I used to work on a show called ‘Glow’, which is about wrestling.”

However, before meeting Cena, Brie put in the extra effort to unlock a new fitness level for herself. She wanted to ensure that her athleticism and fitness didn’t seem completely frail when she was filming with him.

“I was just gearing up to meet John Cena. You know, I just wanted to. Like most of the movie, I’m just running near John Cena. And I wanted to be a baddie.”

Well, she isn’t wrong. The Champ is an absolute baddie, and Alison Brie seems thoroughly impressed with his personality.
