John Cena is known for being a great trash talker, a champion wrestler, an actor, an even a rapper. But what few know about him is that the 38-year-old is also apparently a deep thinker.

Cena posted a photo to Instagram, which posed a surprisingly thoughtful question: “If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?”

He shared this image without a caption, and it probably was unnecessary, given its self-explanatory nature. With 5,000 likes in just over 30 minutes, the post got quite a few interesting comments.


The various hilarious replies included, “Donald Trump vs Kanye West,” “selfie sticks,” “the Kardashians,” and a shot at a fellow wrestler with, “Yes, big show is still wrestling [sic].” (“Big Show” is a famous 43-year-old wrestler who’s been part of WWE since 1999.)

Cena’s thought-provoking post is strikingly different from the really obscure things he usually shares on Instagram. His pictures of random animals, products, historical figures, old movie posters, and celebrities are even more bizarre, because he never includes any captions with them. In fact, it’s intentional, because in the description for his Instagram page, Cena simply wrote, “These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy.”

While Cena is active on social media, the Hall of Famer is taking a two-month hiatus from the ring due to personal reasons, returning on December 26. This may very well result in him losing his U.S. Title. There are also rumors that WWE is planning a showdown between him and Big E.

Fans have also been mapping out his return to wrestling with Dolph Ziggler, who is the ex of Cena’s current girlfriend, Nikki Bella. Ziggler recently revealed that he still harbors feelings for Bella, and this twist in the storyline would make the potential match way more interesting. We’ll just have to wait and watch.
